    Don't think there's a NFC command to unlock the screen, according to Smart Tags.

    What do you mean unlock your screen? Just turn it on, or actually use an nfc tag to enter your password for you?

    I could never see BlackBerry allowing that. It would be a huge security issue.

    There is an option in nfc settings to allow nfc detection while phone is "off".... so presumably locked, right?

    How could this do anything useful if phone remains locked?

    I think you misunderstand the use for that setting. I says it allows the phone to operate as an NFC card when locked. This means it can be setup to become like an access card (like used to allow access to a building) while locked. That lets you wave your card over the Sensor to gain access.

    I use an NFC tag on the dash of the car to turn off wifi, turn on Bluetooth, and start the music player. The phone has to be unlocked for this to work.

    The tags have no security. If they allowed if to supply your password and done with NFC could read it.

    I have to agree. Unlocking the device could be very convenient. Tag could be a ring, bracket or even implanted.
