I've got to disagree on that one, if the seperate tags work but have to be in a sweet spot then there are issues with the NFC in your devices. I would say to contact firstname.lastname@example.org and query the possibility of a swap from Classic to Alpha (assuming you have a Classic ring to start with).
I would say that for whatever reason you are simply having NFC reading issues whether it's a method based issue or straight out poor NFC in your devices.
From the other thread "Inlays on their own, without metal, will be extremely easy for a phone to read. If you need to find a sweet spot for an inlay that is not in a ring then your phone has issues which will require your attention."
The rings will behave differently due to their construction, being made of metal.
*4. Unlock don't work if screen turn off. I need press power, scroll my screen logo and after that a see NFC logo. Very long and not convenient.
NFC only works while the screen is on...that's the way it was setup on all Android phones.
If your Rooted there is an Xposed module called NFC LockScreenOff Enabler that will let NFC work when screen is off.
Definitely good to hear you got your ring,@asbath! The partial fingerprint is something I think you should talk to email@example.com about though. Let them know it's happened, at the very least so they can keep an eye out for any others that might have the same issue.
You could try giving it a serious polish and see if that helps any but not with anything mechanical as that might overheat the ring and burn you or possibly cause other issues.
I'll be interested to hear how you go with unlocking windows!
@Chris164, I'm afraid resizing titanium rings is a can of worms no jeweller will want to open. It's just too difficult to accomplish in any reasonable way. Still, excellent that you've got it now! Time to start inventing new uses for it, maybe hack something together (the ladies love random electronics too).
FWIW I heard that an "easy" way to resize a titanium ring is to shave off some of the material on the inside of the ring, basically kind of like converting a comfort fit ring into more of a straight ring. It will definitely allow a better fit for a bigger finger, but it doesn't really give you that much flexibility of enlarging a ring more than say 0.5-1 US ring size.
Can we please get an update to plain/original rings being shipped to the U.S.? From what I can tell, these have not had any issues, not had 80% defect rates, not being replaced with anything but also not being mentioned in any updates.
These are included in the provided numbers, the 80% failure rate was at the factory for Stealth Bombers.
Other rings have a 20% failure rate at the factory.
Both these figures are before taking into account secondary QA at NFC Ring distribution centers and don't have a huge bearing on what is being shipped after being received by the distribution centers, the failure rate at the factory really only shows you why it's slow to produce those specific rings.
Hi @Justin - if it's just a sizing issue and doesn't fit at all then the first order of business is to contact firstname.lastname@example.org and let them know what's happened and what you need.
To help them out a little make sure you use the email that you use for kickstarter, state clearly in the subject field something along the lines of 'Kickstarter backer, ring size return request' just so they immediately know whats going on before even opening the email.
Inside the email if you could state your name, kickstarter pledge, type and size of ring received and what you're hoping to exchange for then that'd be great.
They may ask for some more info but as long as you help them out straight away with the basics then that should make the process a lot easier for everyone.
In the meantime, depending on what you want to do, whether it's return and exchange or purchasing a second one with discount you may want to keep the ring inside it's velvet pouch so it's still in saleable condition for if you do return it.
But most importantly make contact first, don't just send the ring back!
@kurosavvas the question still stays what os (Android/WP) and phone and app version you use. You can see the app version if you click on the gear icon on the top right of the app (you may have to click on create then back before it's showing up).
You've removed the quoted content, so I'm not sure if you're talking about ceasing communication with a backer (justifiably, if they are rude) vs. deciding not to fill their pledge they've paid for based on an arbitrary definition of being offended. I think the community might have something to say about the latter...
