    I am looking for some NFC tags for use with my GS3. I would prefer not to buy the Samsung ones because they are overly expensive, but i want the tags to work. Has anyone tried any different brand tags.
    Also what size tag do i need? My first plan is to use them to send texts when i get in the car saying i am on my way home. So i don't think i need a 1K tag for that, or do I?

    Tagstand sells NFC tags and has their own app. The Tagstand app is alot better than the Samsung TecTile app. They have a second app also in the Play Store that allows Text Messages to be sent without further authorization. I think I bought Type 1 tags. I agree you probably don't require large data tags at this time.

    Thanks, i have been checking those out. Did you buy one of the starter kits, or the individual type 1 tags. Cant figure out exactly what is in the starter kits.
    I have found those and the Mifare ultralight that are on amazon. The Mifare seem a little cheaper, but i cant find much info on them outside of amazon. Has anyone had any experience with these?

    I bought six of the type 1. I bought the Tagstand because of the recommendation from this website. Having a great app by them also helped.
