API to directly modify system properties (wifi, mobile data, bluetooth, volume, airplane mode, etc.) instead of using launchers
This can be made safe for users by making the certification requirements very strict when utlizing those APIs with requirements for very clear, concise notice to the users.
An nfc tag at Office for switch of wifi,volume down,vibrate on
A tag at home door for volume full,wifi on ,
Multiple tags on car to send sms, make urgent call,send an sms to the caller that I am driving
This is what users want to with nfc. Either open up API for changing system settings or provide an app that does this. Also make it optional to have confirmation to receive while tap a tag.
Windows Phone Native buttons like on/off switch for connectivity (wifi, Bluetooth, network data, etc) and Apps Supported on-off switch.
what is the built-in URI schemes for launching tap+send??? like ms-settings-wifi for wifi,ms-settings-bluetooth for bluetooth
Enable app API access to change ringtone volume,Mute,vibration, Switch on and off WIFI and Bluetooth.
It is really sad that there is no way to control profiles on WP7.
For security force a popup the first time an APP makes use of the profile API to ensures that the user knows that the app will make change to the volume and connectivity.
Especially turning WIFI on/off, Data on/off.
Thank you for the suggestion on this topic. I’m marking this as on the consideration list for future Windows Phone releases given strong interest from the community.

In my opinion it should at least be possible to change system settings via NFC Tags, when those are der by the user himself.

Oh, good, I've wanted a 2g-3g switch on desktop for a long time.
We wouldn't need this if settings could be pinned on the desktop, mind you, especially if tiles would be enhanced to contain an on-off slider.
I don't like the idea of developers tweaking my settings either, but it is so annoying to navigate through settings several times a day. 2G/3G, data on/off, wifi and BT on-off should be easily accessible.
I don't see any reason for an app to switch to airplane and disconnect me from the rest of the world.
Again, this wouldn't be an issue if alarms/calendars would be enhanced with more than just ringer. Nokia did this very well with Situations, maybe they'll bring it back.
No, I don't want other developers changing how my phone is setup.

I would especially like to see the volume api implemented. My volume down button got damaged and no longer works so the only way I can lower the volume of my phone is by plugging in the headphones and using the inline volume button.
