    I've used it to transfer video's, pictures, files and app suggestions to my wifes phone and my W8 tablet. I shall try to send a picture to another device (non-wp) as you all have me curious now:)

    Tested with trying to send to a BB9900, the blackberry couldn't recognize the file type (just a picture), so tried to transfer one from the BB to my 920...the nfc wouldn't even start the connection when starting from the BB.

    also leaving it open to work with other devices.. unlike that closed wifi direct to s3 only.

    Yes, I used it to transfer pictures to another Lumia 920. Also with my Nokia Play 360. Hopefully we can use it eventually to pay for things.

    I mainly use mine for tap to send files to other phones. Waiting for the wallet to be able to use NFC.
    Sent from my RM-820_nam_att_100 using Board Express

    Nothing right now but I feel that NFC is still in its infancy, regulated to more simple tasks like sharing playlists and pictures. I think the versatility of NFC will explode once more NFC enabled devices hit the market. It's a shame that Apple passed on NFC as iPhone 5 sales would have helped NFC tech tremendously. Unfortunately Apple choose profit margins over innovation.

    My concern with Apple getting into the NFC mix is their seeming desire to adopt their own standard to differentiate themselves from others and make it their own. My hope would be that they would choose to go with NTAG203, but it wouldn't surprise me to see them come out with their own standard if NFC adoption remains sluggish in the mobile realm.

    I was waiting for NFC for Windows Phone, and it was finally announced for Windows Phone 8. To my dismay, I found that Microsoft joined board with those waiting for ISIS, practically making NFC worthless to me (I'm waiting for it for NFC payments, and my wife and I have to share one debit card for various reasons....). I understand NFC hasn't taken off yet, but the places that do currently support NFC (Walgreens, CVS, BP gas station, McDonalds, and other places) pretty much cover the vast time I need NFC payments when leaving the card with my wife (mostly gas really).

    There has been a recent case released for the iPhone 4/4s/5 that supports ISIS, so it at least shows there is hope if the iPhone is receiving attention for NFC payments via ISIS. However, I don't see ISIS taking off anytime soon, so that basically kills my dreams of making NFC payments via a Windows Phone 8 device. That is the ONLY THING I miss from Android (Google Wallet)....

    Passbook. I feel Apple left out NFC to 'steer' people into using Passbook.

    I am in the same boat. I don't know how bad I was waiting for the 920 so I can use NFC payment at my local stores. I seriously wanted to be rid of carrying around my credit/debit cards. But alas, this is not the case right now. Almost feel as though I got the bait and switch as Wallet payment was announced as a feature. . It is not interesting to transfer pictures/video via NFC, I can do email/sms for that. Somehow I think we wont get NFC payment through ISIS until iPhone gets NFC because then the carriers will notice:( I hope I am wrong and it is sooner than later.

    I also have a sticker on my nightstand witch sets the alarm and sets the ringtone to mute.
    May I ask how you set the NFC tag to set your alarm and set the ringtone to mute? :)

    No use for me at this time. I might come up with something fancy with those stickers, but it's not a big deal so I'm not gonna go out of my way and buy them.

    But I still value that my phone has it, hoping that NFC picks up some pace here in Finland too in the upcoming years. But for now I just have it turned off to save battery since I have no use whatsoever for it.

    NFC.
    NFC has three letters.
    I do not recognize the existence of the number three.
    I don't have any use for NFC.

    I literally don't have any use for it here in the Philippines. I just tried to justify me not having any use for it.

    I bought a small pack of 5 stickers and I'm waiting to program those. I have used NFC though. I've shared contacts with a GS3. I had a meetup of Nokia Lumia 920 users from the WNM Live social network. We tapped to get user points for meeting other users in real life. (only cool if you use that network). We also all shared pics with each other. I selected several at once and then tapped the other persons phone and the transfer started. It dummy proofed the Bluetooth transfer.

    So I've used it for proximity verification in one app and instigation of Bluetooth transfer in another. There's also a new "treasure hunt" kind of game in the Store that uses NFC. I'd like to see free songs and/or ringtones and/or apps available by NFC at Microsoft and carrier (ATT, VZ, TMob, Sprint) stores and maybe even venues. I can imagine going to a concert and downloading content via NFC ONLY at the event. That wouldn't use Bluetooth, but rather would trigger a www event.

    Not used it yet although I'd love to be able to make contactless payments with it (my carrier [EE] doesn't supply the required SIM cards to enable this).

    just a question, why can't wp8 phones receive pics or vids transferred from an android phone? the android phone produces the error: target device is unable to receive large files. Is it a bug or just platform incompatibility? I do actually hope that MS will make NFC transfers work with other non-wp8 devices, and when they do that, might as well throw in wifi-direct support as well :D

    I've been reading a wee bit about NFC tags and WP8 the past few days. I'm not 100% clear on things but am I right in saying that you are not able to program a NFC tag to complete a task such as turning your wifi off?

    I brought it to a bunch of Giants games. They're in the NFC. Nothing happened though. Very disappointed.
