    I apologize if you thought I was questioning you. I was simply questioning their response... It's clearly just to save face.

    Oh, no apology needed. I was just saying I have no clue. I never really paid attention to such things in the past.

    In general I'm against carriers disabling applications.

    However, this particular app is something I'd prefer to have no where near my easily-to-lose, easy-to-hack phone. I'm also against RF tags in credit cards for the same reason.

    Anything that accesses my financials should be non-broadcasting in nature and not on a device I have out of my pocket constantly.

    One of the key features on the phone isn't going to be available? Why not just release a phone that cannot make or take calls -.-


    You know Verizon, if I wanted everything on my phone to be locked down and regulated by someone other than me, I would've bought an iPhone

If you prefer Google Wallet, then you install and use that.
    Agreed. I love me some Google but hey, if it does the same thing, who cares?

Id be fine with isis or wallet, if i use it that is. I did notice soda machines at my school that accept nfc stuff, not sure if its wallet or isis though.
    I dont think it is going to be the app itself hacked but rather if your are hacked/romed then you can use google wallet.

    I don;t tether so not my area of expertise, but I assume you can download tether apps from the market can't you? If so, think they do not block the apps, they block tethering. They are blocking a form of network traffic.

    They asked Google to block certain tether apps like "Wireless Tether for Root Users" from the market. At least that's my understanding.

    Yes, they blocking the popular tethering apps out of the market. I think their is one or two but they are few far and in between.
