    I bought a bunch of NFC tags and I am trying to figure out what cool stuff I can do with my Z10. I wanted to place a NFC tag next to my night table, and write it / program it as such that when I go to bed I simply tap the phone on the tag and the Z10 goes to night mode. Same for the office, etc. Is that possible or just a far fetched dream? Has anyone else done something cool with NFC tags?

    Something I have wanted to do for a long time but could not get to it. All the very best.

    So far what you can do is limited by the available API's. I recommend MyProfilesPro . It has quite a few features and is updated as more become available. I use this app right now to turn on and off my bluetooth in my car. I plan on having it switch my sound profiles and set my alarm as it becomes available. I am in no way connected to this developer, just have bought the app and am satisfied with it, despite it being in its early stages. The android ports which offer more features (as they are on a more mature OS) do NOT work. They can not access the NFC.

    I'm looking to get some tags myself. Where did you get yours?

    I don't now much about NFC, do the Samsung tags in the Crackberry shop work with the Z10

    Their tags work and are reasonable priced with a few options of packages. Very happy with them.

    Thumbtag smart poster tags should work with Blackberry. They help small businesses get information to their customers digitally. Instead of passing out paper fliers or coupons, the information is sent to and stored in the customers' phone. Each tag has its own "tag page" (a URL) where the file (coupon, etc.) is displayed along with that company's contact info.

    Business card tags! Instead of handing out cards, attach one of these stickers to the back of your existing cards and have clients tap their phone to get your info. These have 4K of memory which is enough to hold all of your contact info plus a small photo or logo!
