Alert not NFC ring

@johnyma22 I don't think our batch had been registered against the DB then? I don't have the start page on either side of the ring and it arrived chipped... I am wondering how it passed QA testing. I have tried using WiFi and 4G with the register option with no luck.
I have read some people received extra tags along with their ring, I only received the sweetspot stickers in my package.
@NFCringTom is there any way I could get a verification code by email to the address i purchased my ring with? July seems like a very long wait before i can use my ring.
The code reset page cannot recognise my email address so it looks like no UID was ever matched to my email ever.
I will send an email linking to this post if you are able to help.
Things to check:
You have internet available during registration
The get started page is written to the ring when it arrives.
Was the 'Get Started' web page written to the ring when you got it?

@Lokki they were empty tags on both sides when I had finally got them to detect. When I scanned them without the Control app they came up with 'New Empty Tag'
Ok, thanks. We'll bring that to @NFCringTom's attention.
I'll just point out again for anyone looking at this thread that if you send your ring back, if you got a 'special' kickstarter one, you're extremely unlikely to get the same ring style back.
Think hard before doing that!
If you got one that is styled the way the ones available for pre-order are then it obviously isn't gonna be an issue. ;-)

@Lokki my ring had the Get started link loaded to ring when I got mine but still no luck... What would you suggest?
That's an interesting one.
You guys should still be able to use the unlock app regardless, this should only affect the 'NFC Ring Control App'.
Have you tried the Unlock App yet? You'll need to enter your kickstarter email and try it with your password but you may need to get a reset validation code and use that.
Here's the link if you need it https://me.nfcring.com/validationCodeReset

Edit: removed email for spam protection / Lafu
Will try later, keep getting Gateway timeout at the moment :/
@Lokki as far as I know this link is for the unified NFC Ring login (forum) but not for the unlock app verificetion
but I could be wrong
try the reset link with your KS email (https://me.nfcring.com/validationCodeReset)
@Lafunamor I'm not a kickstarter backer, I just preordered in April
Cheers @Lokki , I'm really loving the ring otherwise! Even used it to book mark this thread ;)

Just waiting for @NFCringTom to read and respond....
Give it a little longer, guys. Troubleshooting issues like this can be a horrendous pain.

I have the excact same problem as described here.
Nexus 5 (also tried Xperia Z2) - Stealth bomber ring. Get the same "ALERT Not NFC ring", and therefore can't register my ring.
Other than that, I really love my ring! :-)
(I was to late for Kickstarter, but preordered through the website)
are all of you having the issue with rings that where pre-ordered? or are there some KS backers with this issue?
please mention too if you had the get started link on your ring or not.
