Default How's NFC working for everybody?

I set up my Google Wallet with no problems at all. I tried to pay for a couple of things at a CVS and nothing happened. Tried again at a Chevron and it looked like it was about to work but got an error. Anybody else having NFC problems? Could be that I'm just new to it and I don't know what I'm doing.

Many places that have them installed don't actually have them functional. When I got my evo I tried it out at a walgreens and the Lady just stared blankly at me and didn't know what it was. The manager had to tell me they weren't operational

Haha I got the same blank look as she was thinking, "What the hell are you doing?" For the ones that are operational do I need to open Google Wallet or should it just do it from my home screen?

Works well for me. Went to Macy's this week and paid for a shirt. The lady stood there looking at what I was doing. Told me 5 times after the receipt printed that I needed a card to use the machine. Told her I paid already. She ended up calling the manager. 15 mins later I had a crowd of Macy's employees and loss prevention amazed at what these phones can do.

No you don't need to open Google wallet. Just make sure you have a card defaulted on your wallet and when ready to pay make sure your screen is on. It won't work with the screen off. Follow the prompts after your phone vibrates.

So when you are going to buy something, where do you look to see if there is an NFC payment option?

Mine works fine. I love using Google Wallet to pay for things, and the looks I get are priceless!

I was wondering the same thing since this thread started.

See NFC terminals and click "Images" to see a variety of NFC-enabled devices ... now I can remember seeing some of them at various places.

Just used Beam for the first time, really cool and easy to use! I beamed this picture to my wife of our kitten tasting the first Christmas tree she has even seen.
