My phone with the self-destructed secure element is back to Google for refund.
If I buy another one, I'll just disable the NFC antenna and never use Google Wallet.
I still can't understand why these companies are spending billions of dollars for mobile wallet solutions. It is far more convenient for me to just take out my credit card and swipe it than having to worry about potential security breach or self destruction of my phone.
They are trying to fix what is not broken. Maybe they are just preparing for the days when the NWO require that everyone gets RFID chips implanted by law.
