    I did the HTC system update, and Google Wallet now appears to be working. I was able to add the prepaid card & got the $10 promo. Now to try it out in a store.

    Okay so I just called google wallet support the rep was unsure if using the same gmail I had previously used on a device to set up google wallet that ended up bricking the secure element do to a factory reset if that would cause this one to do the same so if anyone out there knows if using the same gmail on a new phone for a new wallet account will cause issues please let me know!! Thanks guys!!

    Or I wonder if I link a different e mail address than my normal gmail I used to set up my device if that will cause issues? I may just create a new email and link google wallet to that and keep my phone linked to my normal g mail address..

    I tried at Mcdonalds and no such luck :( my friend with an LTEVO couldnt get it to send or show up...mine did on first try but then it prompted me for my pin..then it showed a sign like it went..but no go :( then it said ask cashier if payment was recieved or not? First time trying..with an otterbox defender case! So idk if my case messed with it or what :( and she also has a case on her LTEVO not an otterbox some nock off brand but same thickness and hers didn't even attempt to work at McDonalds :(

    It feels good that with the update I was finally able to set it up, now I get to see it in action.

    I almost feel they should give us another $10 to make up for the past month and a half.

    Having the same exact issue. I tried to use it at McDonalds and my balance is $10.00 (free $10) and it swiped the first try, then asked for my pin, then it asked me to swipe it again to confirm payment so I did and then it asked me to ask the cashier if the payment was sent? And I tried it at a local convience store who also has paypass and the same exact thing happened.. and by this point I felt stupid and didn't know what to do cause both cashiers looked at me like I'm crazy and the payment must have never went through because they still had that dumb stare on their face and after I left the store my balance still shows $10.00 :( I want to use it but so far iv had no luck actually using it using it..iv came close as I have described but the $$ sending part has yet to work?

    Could it be my defender otterbox? Or the fact that my 3g internet is off at the time of purchase? Il be sending a tap/pay fail report to g.wallet via the app everytime this continues to happen!!!

    And the whole part where it says if prompted select credit, iv never been prompted to select debit or credit not on my device or the paypass receiver!? So idk if its me or the cashier is suppose to select credit but they haven't cause their idiots and can't believe I'm trying to pay with my phone or what? :( :( :(

    Okay cause I have yet to get mine to 100% go at all..it starts to, asks for my pin, then says please swipe again to confirm payment, then it says please confirm with cashier the transaction was completed !? Do I Haveto hold my device on the paypass sensor? I just swiped it like I do with my debit card that has a paypass chip inside it but never get it to fully work?!

    Yes for the whole transaction the phone has to be held near the pay pass sensor... Hey it could be worse... The first time I tried to use mine I was in a Wawa and there was a decent size line... An old man at the back of the line assumed I was just some young kid playing with my phone instead of paying and cursed me out.. Lol.. I think part of the reason I was having trouble was the cashier had never seen anyone try and use it... But when it did go through I put my pin in... It confirmed the payment and the cash register popped open just as if I swiped my card

    Yeah I didn't know this either but that alone will most likely solve your problem.. I hope it works for you! It's hella cool when it does :beer:

    Try doing that with your I phone, sheep:p

    Any luck with your wallet? I'm going to use the extra 10 bucks Google was ice enough to give me today! Guess I lucked out! When I set up g wallet the first time I received the 10..I used it and then wallet was on lock down.. Then after the ota I reset wallet and another 10 was in my card haha


    P. S. Is anyone else noticing that after the update wallet seems to be wayyy faster and more responsive? It really feels like it works a lot smoother now
