    cool! cuz I'd like to be able to use my credit card, as I don't know how google prepaid card top-ups count towards my rewards points... although I might continue to use GWallet and boycott ISIS just to smite verizon... lol...

    now if they would allow GWallet 'officially' for competition, then I'd be cool with that.

    Got mine installed a few weeks ago after a wipe, an auto OTA update was completed yesterday, but prepaid is still unavailable. Called google and they will email when it comes available again.

    I've never seen a "Secure Element" type of warning. How do I test to make sure my "secure element" is OK and not the cause for my Google Wallet not working?

    I just added $20 to my google prepaid card, and I had to verify by enter address/ssn etc... I think this may have been an extra security feature added in a recent update... b/c it still had the credit card info, just wanted to verify my info.

    Also now my purchase in the wallet apps says the transaction was made by my credit card used for the topup rather than google prepaid. However, my two $20 top-ups today went through fine.

    And when I checked out at whole foods, a signature was required?!?! it took two tries to make the purchase go through, as I tapped the device while my above info was verified, so that transaction seems to not have gone through, but the second time it worked fine (I can't remember if the signature was required on the failed transaction or the good one though). The checker girl was really confused and didn't know what to do... she wanted to see my signature to compare... but nothing to show! ha! I love that... so funny...

    I've been loading my Google Wallet since day one in December using a BoA MasterCard w/o any problems; the Google Prepaid doesn't care which card you use to load it with cash... I only wish there were more establishments with the NFC terminals.

    It would also help if the places that have the terminals make sure they're working.

    I'm also with one of the Isis sponsoring banks, but I'm not sure if I want my card linked directly, instead of now where I use it to load the prepaid Google Wallet card.

    Has anyone tried this now that the android market has become google play? I've been trying for the past few minutes, following the directions listed exactly, and no dice. It fails on step 7. When I keep hitting back, it never reprompts me to choose market or browser, or if it does it is from the first time I go to google play, which directs me to the market homescreen, not the google wallet app.

    Additionally, I'm getting a warning that my device is unsupported because I am rooted. This only started happening in the last day or so. Is anyone else experiencing this?

    Where would I look to see if my "Secure Element" is OK? Is it a warning that pops up when you open Google Wallet? Is it a warning that pops up when I reboot my phone? Is it a warning that pops up when I try to use Google Wallet?

    If anyone has had this warning please let me know how you found it.

    Since the browser trick no longer works where can I find the apk for the market version?

    Just got off the phone with both money network and the Google wallet team...issue is still affecting some people, and they are hoping by the end of the week to have a resolution...????? The guy at money network was nicer...and said his wallet on his nexus has been down for a month and his is showing the same discrepancy with OS mysid #s, so he would let me know if he hears anything....and asked if I was a follower of phandroid, since info would probably be there before his boss told him about it....
    Had to laugh at that one!!!!

    Not for me. Still unavailable, but you give me hope! Maybe they're rolling out the fix.

    This is what mines doing now:

    Bump, specifically for this issue.

    I tried using GW today after OTA yesterday, said I had to update, got "Carrier Not Supported" in market, came here, saw market trick, market trick doesn't work because it's now Google Play. Help? Please?

    Droid_Life put out a tweet saying that there have been some people getting it to work, but it appears that the majority haven't been successful so far. Even though I got it to re-authenticate, I haven't tried it at a store yet to see if a transaction will go through. I guess I'll find out tomorrow.

    I just went through the steps and got it to the point of install.

    Open market.google.com in your browser, sign out.
    Search for Google Wallet
    Click the ICON
    Click Install
    Select Play rather than Browser
    It opens in Play, click Install it will install

    I just installed HBO Go this way and it's not available for our phone either.

    Didn't work. I clicked 'Install' (after clicking the icon) and it didn't give me browser or play, but instead told me to sign in and choose a device. When I selected SGN, it said it wasn't supported for my device. I need the sideload, unless I'm not doing something right.

    I don't see where the problem would be since its a free app.

    In a brand new development, my Google Wallet which has worked fine for me since sideloading the app back in January has decided it wants to upgrade. It will not let me into the app otherwise. If I click upgrade it takes me to the Market (I haven't gotten the Play upgrade yet) and I get a note on the screen that "This item isn't available by your carrier". Sounds like Verizon has shut us down.......Now, who's gonna refund the monies I had loaded on the prepaid card?????

    By the way I am non rooted stock 4.02

    Thanks for the link. But this isn't the recent version. After downloading this and replacing the previous version, it's 1.1 R41v8 where the market is on 1.1 R52v7.
