I tried using the ring with my nokia lumia 920
I have been getting this error for a few days now, it says "Alert Windows Phone is unable to use out Community Sweet Spot location servers., we hope to get this fixed as soon as possible, usually on nokia windows phone the nfc sweet spot is just below the camera"
I was able to find the sweet spot but I cannot do anything with the ring.
Thanks all for the suggestions and hints.
The ACS equipment looks good, thier SDK package looks alright despite the lack of native windows support. I'll also take a look at the ASUS options too.
If anyone else has any suggestions please let me know!
His other post says he can read the tags through the case. @johnrgood, The Alpha may or may not work through the case. If you've requested one then you'll have to test it and let us know as @Memnoch says. Personally I think you're better just making the case thin or putting a hole right where your sweet spot is. This would make it an order of magnitude easier to use the ring for phone unlocking because you'd have a physical location to aim for. This would be easier to use than the sweet spot stickers and would work well with the Classic ring.
With Silent Circle it's not entirely surprising. What is surprising is the choice of a Swiss domain. The device doesn't appear to have NFC capabilities at all, I'm pretty sure they would advertise features if they were present.
@5nickers do try not to be quick to take offense, the most difficult part of troubleshooting is getting past any preconceptions and finding that one detail that has been missed. The only time it'd be acceptable to take instant offense is if we were being directly antagonistic, which I assure you no one is. There would be no point to that.
That's great, glad you confirmed that idea for me @omeletted. Typically Motorola, doing something like that... But it would be nice to do it with other devices so it was less obvious how they were being unlocked.
@shama yea, sounds good. We still need to address the issue of "proximity" IE you don't need to use your ring to unlock your phone if you are using sat-nav or if you at a trusted WiFi spot but those are V2 things. Initially just learning about interactions is a huge step forward for the project so thanks for sharing and keep up the good work!
