    buynfctags.com INCREASED the friggin shipping cost to Canada!!

    37.35 for international priority!! it was $26.xx yesterday.. today it went up $10!!

    and we have a group buy going on and have about 70 tags to buy and the shipping is like almost $70 bucks!!! CRAZY!

    yah they changed to fedex, but still to pay 100% more for shipping is crazy! maybe they can't do much for shipping cause of what fedex charges.. i dunno.. at least offer the Ground option..

    i really wish there was another option to get these tags!!

    we found tagstand.com and just waiting to see how much it would be

    but we might have to bite the bullet with buynfctags .. sigh..

    That is not good if the prices going up instead of down.

    It is a Canadian company called Smart Card World. They are in BC, Canada.
    A search in google for "Mifare Ultralight" bring this company in the sponsored link area with following title:
    Mifare Ultralight US$0.25 | SmartCardWorld.com

    Have you tries to contact them?

    would these tags work?

    it says they are 64byte... which i think is right...

    cause the buynfctags are 64bit(512bytes), which doesnt make sense!! 64 bits is only 8 bytes

    Smartcard Focus :: Shop :: NFC sticker - 64 byte, 38mm circular

    do you have ShortcutMe? I ask because with ShortcutMe you can use one tag to do a billion things, but without it a tag can only do one function.

    ShortcutMe macros do take a little getting used to. Anyways I wrote out something that will do what you want. It will go through options to turn Location Services on (I think that's what you meant by gps?). Then it will check if Bluetooth is on, if not it will prompt you (this is a BB OS API issue, checking if bluetooth is on, while it's off results in an unavoidable prompt) however the way I wrote this it will turn on bluetooth no matter which option you choose in the prompt. It requres two macros though. One to toggle bluetooth which can be imported into any other macro and then this one you want. Goes a lil something like this

    Macro to toggle bluetooth, this macro can be imported into any other one.
    Shortcut Name: Toggling Bluetooth
    Shortcut Keys: BTT
    App Name: Macro
    Macros:
    Launch Manage Connections;
    While0 !IsAppForeground Manage Connections;
    Do0;
    Delay1;
    EndWhile0;
    NavMoveDown2;
    NavClick;
    EscKey;

    Now here's the one you wanted, it will go through options, turn on Location Services. Then check if Bluetooth is on, if it isn't you will get a prompt. No matter what you choose bluetooth will still be turned on.
    Shortcut Name: GPS And Bluetooth On
    App Name: Macro
    Macros:
    Launch Options;
    While0 !IsAppForeground Options;
    Do0;
    Delay1;
    EndWhile0;
    MenuItemFromTop5;
    NavClick;
    Delay50;
    MenuItemFromTop6;
    NavClick;
    Delay50;
    MenuItemFromTop2;
    NavClick;
    MenuItemFromTop1;
    NavClick;
    EscKey;
    *Keys;
    EscKey;
    If0 IsAppForeground Options;
    Then0;
    EscKey;
    Else0;
    Delay1;
    EndIf0;
    If1 IsBtOn;
    Then1;
    Delay1;
    Else1;
    ImportMacroBTT;
    EndIf1;

    This was done pretty quick on my end, so there's no safegaurd in place for if Options was already opened. Please make sure Options isn't open already or this could have some adverse effects. If this is indeed what you wanted I'll expand it and put some safe guards in. This was written using ShortcutMe_Touch. 5.9.1.3_OS7_T on 9900/7.0.0.440

    Sorry. Didn't explain well. I included the BTT macro, it must be entered as it's own though. There's two seperate macros in my post. The first is the BTT, the second handles the location services and then calls the BTT one

    That's less of a problem than it sounds that's just an issue of ShortcutMe version. What version do you have? And to fix this problem change *Keys to SpKeys

    Glad removing the * worked, but some cases it won't. SpKey is identical to *Key, while *SpKey is identical to Key. *Key and Key are two different commands, sometimes either will work but it's something to keep in mind.

    Interesting, if it keeps happening after reboot then I'll throw some debugging dialogs in and we'll see where the trouble lies and fix it

    I wouldn't bite the bullet. Screw them for coming into this thread, pretending to care about shipping costs THEN raising them. I'd rather pay $60 shipping from another company than I would $30 with buynfctags. Least other companies didn't come in here, say "we feel bad our prices are high, oh by the way, now that we know you guys have noticed shipping is expensive we made it MORE expensive."
