    All you have to do is side load the apk I have it on my stock 4.0.2 Gnex right now with the $10 prepaid card and everything

    MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service


    Now if only someone could explain to me exactly how this works so I don't make an idiot out of myself at Wawa lol


    EDIT: Some people have been saying this is a "modded apk" throughout the thread.. obviously you install this at your own risk but just for some clarification

    GSM Galaxy Nexus has Google Wallet.
    Verizon Galaxy Nexus does not. You have to root to get it on your GN. Never tried ^this guys method

    No Nexus other than the Sprint Nexus S has Google Wallet available through the Android Market. I have both the GSM and the LTE Galaxy Nexus.

    I tried to add more than the $10 it gave me for activating it. When I went to add $100 it took it from my bank then it refunded it immediately. I wouldn't add.

    Tried the above apk and loads fine on VZW GNex. Have not paid with it yet, definitely loads fine on phone. does not need root.

    I was able to install easily. Have $10 preloaded. I will try and get gas for my bike tomorrow to test it.

    just added $20 to my prepaid card after loading the app from above link. paid with credit card. (used a virtual number just in case)
    seems like it went through fine. got a receipt via email and balance was updated on the app.

    How do you use a virtual number? I used my debit card from my bank and was hesitant to do it.

    citibank has a virtual account number tool for anyone that has a citi credit card. I think some other banks have this too but not sure.

    here is the website for how it works with Citi:

    https://www.citibank.com/us/cards/gen-content/messages/van/index.htm

    its really convenient

    Edit: BofA and Discover have a similar thing

    The app installed fine for me but its been trying to activate the Google prepaid card for 5 minutes now... is that normal? I'm on a working Wifi connection.

    Edit: Restarted my phone and the activate complete.

    This app is really laggy for me; does anyone else notice that?

    Installed fine for me, along with the sweet free $10. Visa can be used to add funds right?

    I just successfully added $100 to my card. I like the offers tab. Plan on using some of them this week prior to Christmas.
