My Tamagotchi Won’t Connect to Phone!

Recommended Posts

Hi!

So I got the 4U app on my Samsung Galaxy S3 (finally!) and I really need your help!

So I put new alkaline batteries in it, Sound is on and everything! Also NFC is turned on!

So, here I am, going onto the app and clicking toy, I pick one.

Get my 4U ready, It has the little symbol on it so everythings fine; and this happens (it only happened once by the way) A weird house appears with 2 characters peaking out, saying something in Japanese.

Then, it made a happy noise. Then, stopped.

Meanwhile, the app, was not doing anything. And my phone kept on turning off! The image was not going smaller, and it was just stuck on the screen with noting happening!

Is it something to do with the firmware? Please answer its my fave Tama and I really want to get it IMO English and stuff!

Have you done everything correctly?

If you're sure you're doing everything right, and have tried a few times (it can be finicky), then the phone is probably not compatible. Just because it has NFC doesn't mean that its compatible. And even if it is a model that is known to work, different countries put different "guts" into phones (NFCs have different ranges, and 4U needs a very specific Japanese range), making it too troublesome than it needs to be.

Ok, so the firmware is fine? Will a Samsung notepad 2 or something work? We have Nokia’s, but pretty old ones.

Also I watched a video by Mr. Blinky, and he tried wil the exact same phone that I did. (Samsung Galaxy s3 mini)

It looks like it’s something to do with the phone, because on Mr. Blinky video the title was ‘Common Tamagotchi 4U not working’ or something like that. Is there any way I can make it better? Or what about the nexus 7 tablet? But then again, I don’t want to buy something for just my 4U!

According to this post:
" http://www.tamatalk.com/IB/topic/191330-4u-compatible-phones/ "
It seems that the Samsung Galaxy S3 isn't working.

You can find a full list of compatible and noncompatible phones here:

I think the Nexus 7 Tablet is your best bet, I have a Nexus 7 (I think) phone and it works well with the Tamagotchi 4U. Plus, it is confirmed on here: https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/tamazone/using-nexus-4-with-tamagotchi-4u-t27115.html

(As long as it is the 2013 version apparently)

I hope this helps :)
