I suspect you mean Frodsham, not Frodshaw. Do try and keep up!

You thought NFC tags were Not For Consumers? Well, they're in Maplin's

As there are no in built profiles with Android (lots of 3rd party apps), using Tasker and NFC Task Launcher is the quickest way of putting the phone in the mode I want, with a simple wave of the phone at the tag

Yes, you have to tap another tag. So I have one attached to the in car holder, one stuck to my monitor at work, and one in my wallet for home.

Using NFC Task Launcher and Tasker on Android, I have tags at work, home and in the car. I use them for profiles. At work the phone is set to vibrate, no WiFi. In the car it sends auto reply text to inform people I'm in the car and won't reply to sms. At home connects to home WiFi, etc.

3G Coverage

Everyone seems to forget that 3G coverage (in the UK at least), is pretty poor. The networks only seem interested in the big urban areas, and the rest of the country can go hang. I was in the alps last summer and could get a gsm mobile signal on the top of Mont Blanc. Try doing that in Snowdonia, the Lakes and the Scottish Highlands, never mind 3G
