I used it for the first time since it was reactivated by Google. Mine says "unsupported device" but I had no trouble buying coffee at Circle K yesterday. It definitely took the cashier by surprise saying that she had never seen anything like that. On my way out 2 different customers wanted to know what phone I had and how it worked.

This is the reason why Google should have included this feature on this phone fully functionally at the release. It's something innovative, new and impressive (when it works). In two years on the iPhone 5S (do you see what I did there?) Apple will release a new way to make iPhone users lives easier, something creative and innovative, unlike anything ever seen. It will be called iWallet and the entire world will be impressed with their forward thinking. Those of us that have been using Google Wallet for more than two years will of course chuckle to ourselves and wonder why Google just doesn't go after Apple the way Apple goes after them for patent infringement.

Good to know, thanks! I had a similar reaction from a 7-11 cashier a couple weeks ago. I'll have to try it again at one of the 2 places I've successfully used it before.

That's the other problem with NFC right now, even if a place has the paypass scanner, it doesn't always work.

Yeah I love it, I used mine at Homedepot - the lady looked at me like I as from the Jestsons. Kept asking me how she could get that on her iPhone... I smiled and said you cant.

I tried it at a couple of places that their reader didn't work. Guess people really don't use those much.

I used mine at the vending machine, and one of the cleaning ladies saw it, and asked what kind of Magic phone did I have. I loved it.

So I finally used mine for the first time since it came back online...at a gas station. It works!!
Only thing I noticed is that now there is an extra step. It used to be, have the employee ring up the purchase and select credit on their side...then just hold my phone up to the machine and it would go and be done.
Now though, after I hold up the phone to the machine, wallet sends the payment, and then I have to select credit on the machine, like some kind of a verification..and then it processes.
Fine by me, since now I know.
Woo hook it works!!!

That's interesting. When I purchased my coffee at Circle K, I woke up my phone while I waited and entered by 4 digit PIN, then I held it by the PayPass and it said SENT! That's it.

I would be interested to see who all has extra steps. Wonder why that happened?

sorry guys but I've been out of the loop for a while. I've tried to catch up but am a little afraid to try.

I got the first APK months ago from XDA. I just went into my wallet and got the message something like "You don't have the currecnt version go to market to update"

I'm totally stock. what do i do? can i keep checking "do later" or do i need to do a special procedure?

You need to either find a new apk with the latest version, or see if you can get the market trick to work on your phone.

thanks Antimony but the thing I'm afraid off is that thing that happens when you can never use it again? I forgot what it's called but when it happens you can not fix it.


So do i uninstall mine first. And is there a special way to uninstall it so that problem doesn't happen? I've been trying to figure out but too much stuff confusing me. I think you have to clear data before uninstall?

The market trick isn't working for me. I get all the way to the end where I should be able to install it, with the Play Store showing me the permissions required for Google Wallet, but there's no install button. The area where it should be is empty.

Have you cleared your cache/history/cookies etc.. from your browser?
Did you log out of market.android.com before you tried to install.

you should just go to market.android.com from your phone - after clearing cookies, cache, etc. search for google wallet, click on the google wallet icon, choose browser, click install, choose browser, login, click back then choose market... thats off the top of my head, but i believe its what's in the video guide.

Market trick worked for me. I couldnt do it with Dolphin Browser, but worked like a champ with the stock browser. Just performed the update 5 minutes ago.

I didn't get it yet, and I'm wondering if its because I'm rooted, which makes my phone "not a supported device".

I had to switch to the stock browser as well after trying it on Chrome. Don't know what the deal is, but works like buttah on stock.

I am not sure how others are doing it, but when all the issues were happening I completely removed the program from my phone...kept trying the market trick, until Google fixed the prepaid issue. Then once that was working, I made sure the old version was uninstalled and cleared my market cache etc...then I used the ICS browser to do the market install, not chrome or any other browser. Worked like a charm.
Good luck!!

Yes, I did all of that and used the stock browser. I followed all of the instructions exactly several times. And each time, I got to the point where you install Google Wallet (it gave me an install screen with all of the permissions), but the install button was missing. It's weird.

I've read online that there have been problems with this method since some of the Play updates.

Buried here somewhere is a video that shows EXACTLY how to do it step by step. I was having the same problems as you until I saw the video. I'm not sure if its in this thread or the other wallet thread. Shouldn't be hard to find.

I watched the video and followed the steps exactly. Like I said, it got to the end to install it like it should, but the install button was missing from above the permissions list. I'm following the steps correctly, and I've done it several times with the exact same result each time.

So, tried to make a purchase at McDonalds today with no luck. Could have been some error on the cashier's side as she didn't speak English all that well and it definitely confused the heck out of her when I put it up to the card/NFC reader. I'll have to try again here shortly.

Its very possible the pay pass reader at that McDonalds wasn't working. Before the security issues came up, I had used mine at one McDs and one 7-11, but at another McDs it didn't work.

Unfortunately, it seems like even though they have the pay pass, not all locations have ones that work, and they don't seem interested in maintaining them. Hopefully as NFC becomes more popular more places will not just have them but make sure they actually work.

So. I just got my Gnex this afternoon. Loving it. Haven't experienced any problems with it (knock on wood) but I know it's early. Already in love. Anyway, after finding an .apk on XDA (I'm not rooted nor unlocked yet) I installed Google Wallet. The market keeps telling me it's not up to date, but oh well....it would be IF YOU'D ALLOW ME TO UPDATE IT BIG RED! I used it once, at 7-11. I bought a six pack of beer and a couple of hotdogs. Best freeeeeee beer and hotdogs ever eaten/drank. The cashier, the people behind me, everybody was all, 'Wow! What the heck?!,'. It was great!

Best freeeeeee beer and hotdogs ever eaten/drank. The cashier, the people behind me, everybody was all, 'Wow! What the heck?!,'. It was great!
See, you have never seen iPhone saying "Thanks for buying our flagship phone, here is a free $10, please, have a beer (or 6) on me."

Very cool.

Like the 2100mah battery cover? No. I use it all the time and mine works great.

Yep, no problem either. The antenna is built into the battery, so Samsung made sure both batteries (stock and extended) worked fine I am sure.

I was getting warning at the top that says the device is not supported by my carrier and a warning about root access at one time, but not since I was able to update the app through Google play, now no warning and it works. I am rooted and on AOKP B30. Ever since the update that Google put out to fix the prepaid card issue and root access, I have not seen those warnings.
Are you able to update the app in Google play at all? Or clear the cache in Settings>apps and then go back into and try again?
Good luck!!

I didn't have the warning before today when i updated the app. It showed up in the market. I created cache and same warning. I'll try to reinstall later and see if that fixes it.

Edit: Ok that fixed it

Edit2: the rooted warning is back again. Does this mean that it just won't work? I almost used it this morning too but their thing didn't work haha

Edit 3: so i never tested it out because i didn't much feel like making an a of myself when the payment didnt work. Anyway, i sold my nexus and I'm just wondering if the $10 from google will still be there if i get a nexus down the line or another nfc enabled phone.

I was finally able to test mine yesterday at an airport shop, and it worked even though I have that "unsupported device" warning.

Which also confirms that the paypass machine at the stupid McDonalds near work is broken, since the problem wasn't my phone.

I hope you didn't sell the phone because of this because it would have worked just fine.

Just to throw this in the mix: Google Checkout has now merged with Google Wallet. I know this, because someone, somehow, tried to make an unauthorized purchase through my Google Wallet account for Google Voice Credit. However, this was very strange to me, since I had never linked any cards WITH my Wallet Account. Upon logging into my Gmail to review the notices they sent, I found that when they merged, it automatically associated the past debit cards I had used for apps, into my Wallet Account. This subsequently caused my account to go over the limit (since I had nothing IN it).

Google had even flagged my account 17 hours previous to the charge, due to a suspicious login activity, yet still allowed the charge to then be made (a little annoying, I must say). They have since refunded me the $10 charge that came out, and suspended my wallet account. It aggravates me though, because this means that I'll probably no longer purchase apps. Seriously, I had a decent password. And I purposely didn't have my card on my Wallet account. Then Google merges them, and bam.

So just curious I shouldnt be concerned that my phone is rooted? I had the unsupported device warning and I got scared and uninstalled it. I also heard that using it while rooted can destroy your "secure element", is this true?

Thank you

I wouldn't worry about it. Mine has been rooted the whole time I've been using Google Wallet; nothing has happened.

The "unsupported device" warning is just for Google to cover their ass, and I'm still not clear on if it refers to the root or being on Verizon since we don't officially have Wallet.

There is a security hole if your phone is rooted, but it also has to be out of your hands (someone taking advantage of this has to physically have your phone) and not be screen locked. So its still more secure than having a credit card in the wallet in your pocket.
