I have repeated my steps without a case, which go something like:
- Remove case.
- Make sure NFC is enabled.
- Open Control app and open the read feature.
- Use loose tag to test sweet spot. Put fingers to mark off the area but not cover.
- Tap ring. If fail, roll ring.
What am I doing wrong that it (is now) almost always failing at the last step? I have tried different orientations, different sides of the ring (so that it's not reading the same tag), slowly moving it around the sweet spot.
As an experiment, I put a finger between the smallest empty tag and the phone and flipped it so that the paper backing is facing the phone and bent it so that only half an inch of it is near the phone, and it is definitely being read! Then I tried with two fingers, which doesn't read.
What am I doing wrong to cause the ring reads to fail? I've just tried the alpha and normal rings about 10 times each this morning and none of them are being read.
