    I am thinking of switching to AT&T. Right now I am looking at the HTC One X or Samsung GS3 (and maybe the next Nexus, if AT&T gets it). Is it true that AT&T has disabled Google Wallet on Android phones with NFC?

    Thanks. The article doesn't seem to think Google Wallet using NFC is a long term solution. However, at the present time, does AT&T block using Google Wallet with Android phones with NFC?

    My phone just upgraded to ICS and "Wallet" from Facebook is available. Anyone ever try that app?

    I know from having an S3 on AT&T that Google wallet isn't available, but I'm unsure if it's because they're blocking it. Wouldn't surprise me. I'm sticking with PayPal for now. Check it out if you haven't already.

    AT&T's trying to block S3 owners and most others from installing Google Wallet because they're coming out with their own mobile payment NFC option called ISIS. I believe it's AT&T and maybe Verizon??

    Not sure of potential release timeframe but would be sometime in 2013.

    Incidentally, it's not hard or detrimental to sideload Wallet on to your S3. Just go over to the AT&T S3 forums on XDA and there's a whole thread there dedicated to nothing but the install of Wallet, complete with needed files and install instructions.

    I've done it and used it for payment at gas stations, convenience stores and supermarkets but found myself using it so rarely that I just froze it with TiBu.

    Well i am pleased to say that I have my option to BIll AT&T back on my phone. Ive left messages on Google Wallet and GooglePlay's G+pages and i guess they looked into it.
