    I don't think it's your location. I think it's Google wallet not working. By the way, I may be late to the dance, but I tried the "reset google wallet" found here in order to try to find wallet in the Market but it does not work for me. Maybe that was closed out.

    This is just frustrating. I don't use it often, but when I do it's nice to have.

    I was able to get it...eventually...to download from the market. Here is another observation. In wallet, from the main screen...if you click the 3button menu and go to about...mine says the mysid is ICL53F but my about phone in settings says I am on: IML74K....wonder if the app is not updating based on my actual device yet because of the connection to Google or if this still seeing my old version of the app from the side loaded version....can anyone check theirs for comparison? Thanks

    Have you tried clearing the cache in the app menu? I did do this yesterday, not immediately before it worked again, but earlier in the day. Not sure if that had some affect on it.

    Glad it worked! Mine still appears to be normal, except that weird Google $1 pending charge is still showing on my credit card... been 3 days now.

    Yeah clear data, remove cards, uninstall, reinstall, redownload....yeah..and still getting the prepaid system is unavailable. I will keep checking, but missing it already. Plus I had money on the prepaid card...and now no access to it. I may give them a call later today or this weekend if its still a no-go.

    This is frustrating. Im not sure how long this is going to take. I wish they would open it up so that any bank card could be linked to our wallet. Why only Citi?

    Apparently they have a contract with Citi, and ONLY Citi at the moment... however, I can load the gift card with funds from MY bank account. While I can still successfully USE the pre-paid card, I will admit that I haven't had a need to charge it back up since all this hubbub started. I guess I'll find out when my pre-paid funds are depleted. Hopefully it'll all be sorted out by then :eek:

    Hi Mike,

    I understand that you have been unable to provision your Google Prepaid
    Card and I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this has caused you.

    While we have restored the ability to issue new prepaid cards to Google
    Wallet, we have temporarily disabled Google Prepaid Card provisioning on a
    device that has previously had a Google Prepaid Card on it. This is to
    ensure the security of our users and we are working to restore full
    functionality as soon as possible. This process will take approximately
    two weeks.

    If you would like a refund for the funds on your Google Prepaid Card,
    please contact Money Network at 855-896-0693. For more information around
    this issue, you can visit the Google Commerce blog at
    Google Commerce.


    Please reply to this email if you have any other questions. We appreciate
    your patience and understanding as we work to improve the Google Wallet
    experience.

    Sincerely,

    Leah

    Here is the response I got. Hope it clears some things up for everyone.

    Well, this sucks. Good to know that they will lock out cards and annoy customers to protect our security (and their face) though.

    Blurg! I want Prepaid cards to work already. So annoying. This is the one feature I was most excited about on this phone and now I have to wait a few more weeks after I waited a month to actually buy the phone. Im so impatient!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Works for me again. I love just keeping $20 on it for those quick trips to Rite Aid and CVS.

    Oh and the Market work-around did work for me and updated my original apk. Nice!

    I was having errors yesterday paying, was saying it couldn't connect to host, but today it is working again. It looks like they are still working on the system. Gotta hand it to Google, when a problem pops up, they work hard and fast to get it resolved. Hopefully the system is back to 100% soon.

    Today I wanted to try using the Google Prepaid Card to make a purchase on the Android Market (wanted to buy Nova Launcher Prime). It's not in my payment options. So I opened up Google Wallet and tapped the Prepaid Card, and I see "User ID: Cannot contact bank". So I have no idea how to fix this if it even can be fixed. Of course I'm just assuming it's possible to use it for the Market in the first place.

    I've seen the "user id: cannot contact bank" before. It was a while back when they were supposedly updating the system. It went away later in the day and all was good. I saw it again recently, today or yesterday... and it is back to normal now. Just give it a day or two.

    I don't think the google wallet prepaid card can be used for anything except purchases on the google wallet device, at least mine doesn't show up anywhere else.

    my prepaid is working fine. spending and provisioning.

    What I'm wondering is that "new" users are the ones having problems... for example, I was signed up and using the service the same day that the updated apk appeared on xda (a month ago?). And then all the security scare, disable, enable, system change/update stuff happened... so maybe if you first signed up for the service during that time of turmoil or after, the prepaid card is still wiggin out...

    mine was buggy at first, but somehow it "fixed itself" during the time of turmoil...

    I was the same way...as soon as it was available on xda....but I am going to give Google an email tomorrow, see what they say.
