Why I can`t read QR code some times
That happens if you disable margin around code or set it too small. In this case your QR code reader can`t detect QR code borders.
Why my device do not see all MeCard/vCard filled fields
Different devices and different software may not work with some fields which are set in the code standard. But all of them should work with basic fields as phone, email, url, name and address.
Why QR code not works when logo placed in QR code center
QR code has additional information which help read damaged code. When you place logo you actually make code “damaged”. And if you can`t read QR code after logo placed just make logo smaller or/and correction level higher
