    I think I missed something. My Stock ROM will work just fine it is an update that is needed to activate the NFC but it most likly will not be a ROM just an APP called (Google Wallet)

    Has anyone else seen Google Wallet using a lot of their battery life? (even more than the display!)

    I keep force stopping it with app manager as well as the Advanced Task Killer app, but it turns itself back on within a few minutes.

    I've tried rebooting the phone and turning off NFC, but nothing seems to work.

    Any advice/suggestions would be welcome.

    Yes. Google Wallet was taking up 70% of my battery!!! For me, a restart did manage to get it off the battery usage culprits.

    Yes!! That is the main reason I joined this site was to ask about this! I just picked up my nexus S yesterday and while my battery still needs time to "break in" I did notice that google wallet was eating over 20% of my battery and I'm not even using it! I'd just assume not have it on my phone but it won't let you delete it.

    I'm sure its only a matter of time before this becomes more of widespread issue.
