List of devices GW supports on the FAQ page:

Eligible Devices - Wallet Help

From what I have seen its not supported on ATT. ATT, VZW, TMO use ISIS which is a competing application.

Seems from the FAQ page GQ will not work on the international version nor will it work on the dev version.

When I first got my one it synced Google wallet onto my phone but it didn't work.
Now it won't allow installation saying it's not compatible.

I am sure the carriers won't allow it.

+1 (T-MOBILE)

I remember seeing GOOGLE WALLET available for download on day one of owning the phone, as my 1st order of business with any phone is GOOGLIZING it w/the GAPPS that I use on a regular basis.

Now, the option to load GOOGLE WALLET isn't present.

Why don't the carriers want GW on their phones? I know VZW gave a total bs answer in one of the articles I read, but I don't understand why they have an issue with it.

Default HTC ONE/GOOGLE WALLET on T-MOBILE a NO-GO

Some official word from T-MOBILE's TWITTER feed today regarding GOOGLE WALLET:

Basically, Sprint is the only carrier with google wallet unless you go with a Nexus device.
Thing that bothers me is that I can't even sideload it to get around their BS.
It just tells me to sod off

That tweet pretty much confirms what everyone knew- there is no valid technical or security reason to block Wallet. GW is simply being blocked to give ISIS a leg up, and T-Mo along with Verizon & AT&T, are sitting on Wallet using their gatekeeper status. It's clearly anti-competitive behavior and a net-neutrality violation that should be on the FCC's radar- not holding my breath.

And unless carriers have been granted the right to pick winners, that tweet's quote that ISIS is somehow the 'mobile device payment standard' flat out isn't true. There is no wireless mobile payment standard, and if there ever was I highly doubt it will be ISIS.

Search back on phandroid.
There was an article about this.
Someone sent in a complaint to the fcc about Verizon lying when it came to the secure element.
The only difference to date is that AT&T and T-Mobile have not mentioned a reason for the block that I have seen but we all know it's Isis.

What need to happen is Google telling the carriers to shove it... It's Google's store so why let carriers tell them what to do?

Rather than manufacturing a reason, AT&T and T-Mo staying mum while keeping Google Wallet permanently stuck in the approval process means less chance of FCC scrutiny. "We haven't blocked GW, it just hasn't been approved yet..."

I put a petition on change.org requesting T-Mobile to not block Google Wallet from their devices.
