    The video is kind of misleading in the fact that the information that they stole is the exact same info a store clerk gets with every transaction. You essentially hand that info out DAILY. If you think that a company's hiring process is a line of consumer defense just google "waiter or clerk arrested credit card fraud" and see how many stories pop up.

    I agree. I'm just saying that these kind of videos scare lots of ppl. They would hesitate to be early adopter of this kind of technology.

    I have to carry my wallet anyway.
    And some people here are saying "but you could lose your wallet, too". Sure I could. But my wallet could survive a 3 story fall. Can my phone survive a 4 foot drop?
    (signed, the guy who has broken 3 phones and 2 tablets)
    I've never dropped my phone in a toilet, but I know someone that did. Wallet can survive that.
    Not to even mention what I don't think anyone mentioned here: privacy.
    I don't care that Google knows everything I buy in Play. I don't care that Amazon knows every purchase I make there. I don't care that the grocery store tracks every food purchase.
    But do we really want ONE company to know EVERY purchase we make in life? For what? So you can MARKET MORE **** TO ME?
    Come on. You KNOW that's why Google wants you to use the wallet. Not because it's going to be easy for you. Because they want MOAR MARKETING DATA! Mwhahahaha!
    Stop it Google. Stop trying to own EVERY aspect of my life. Love you. but no.

I'm not talking about the thief spending your money, but you no longer have a means to pay for anything. There are times where my phone will randomly eat through its battery in a few hours when normally I can have it on for 15 hours of use and have 30% when I go to bed. Also, very few places take the NFC payment methods. Also, what is the big deal with using NFC anyways? I forget the credit card company that put an NFC chip in their cards so you could tap and not swipe it and it never caught on. Now I have to get my phone out, unlock it, open the app, hope your data connection is good and then tap your phone. Or I could get my wallet out and swipe my card.

    I just don't see it as an easier or more efficient method of payment. I see it as a novelty, a conversation starter for your inner nerd. I get this is just my opinion, but checks came out because cash was inconvenient. Imagine carrying $5000 to BestBuy to buy something. A check was easier. Now, credit cards/debit cards came out because personal checks took forever in lines. I think using your phone is a step backwards in efficiency. I'd rather have a single card that has a flexible display on it (hurry up Samsung) where you could touch which account you want to use and either tap it via NFC or swipe it. No having to log in, nothing. Use a finger print reader so it knows its you before the purchase and use wireless charging tech at home to charge it. But even that would have draw backs.
    Or what happens if you lose your wallet then your out of luck and have no way to pay for anything or if someone steals your wallet......Wallets still tend to disappear more then phones cause they hold CASH and CREDIT CARDS! Now if you have BOTH you can actually still pay if the place supports the digital wallet. THe wallet is still secure if lost or stolen cause requires a PIN to purchase and also if you secure your phone then would be two PINS one to get into the phone and the other to use the wallet. Hard Plastic CC's think about the last time someone actually checked your ID to use it to pay for something......

    I blame it on the carriers.......

    They are trying to be greedy and open their own ISIS just to get money with every transaction while they are BLOCKING Google Wallet until they can release their own wallet which I am sure won't be as good cause they are closing the market and only allowing their software to be used. When you do that it hampers development cause then they are the only one that can be used.

    I have been using Google Wallet but requires hacking cause of the carriers only one that allows it is Sprint. It is much faster and easier then pulling out my wallet and then looking for the card. I have paid at WaWa, Home Depot, Wendy's (at the drive through have a scanner outside!)

    Plus I know the card number is not being seen by anyone Google uses a virtual card then charges your real card later. Also know I am not forgetting my card behind or dropping it you do that your account will be used if someone gets it and isn't honest. If I leave the phone I can remote wipe the whole phone or just my Google Wallet and no one could use without getting through two PINS. Yes maybe hack but still would take longer then plastic card to use. Guesing I could disable quicker most of the time. Plus banks for illegal use if stolen cover minus a feee I am sure lol.

    Would i go 100% Virtual wallet no for a few reasons not accepted everywhere, and could have phone that crashes etc....But I do use it every chance I get it is quicker, and easier. Still have wallet but need drivers license etc...So both work well together if the carriers would only allow it and stop being so greedy!

    You're just assuming.

    "A surge in thefts of iPhone and iPads is responsible for a slight uptick in New York City's overall crime rate, according to New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.Apple's products were the preferred mobile device target of many thieves in the city, Bloomberg noted during his weekly radio address, according to the New York Times.
    Statistics published by the New York Police Department revealed that as of Monday, there were 3,484 more major crimes reported in 2012 than for the same period last year. During that time, the city experienced 3,890 more thefts of Apple products.
    "If you just took away the jump in Apple, we'd be down for the year," Marc La Vorgna, the mayor's press secretary, told the Times."

    Not to mention: thieves really don't want credit cards anymore. Steal my credit card and I am on the phone with the bank 5 minutes after you leave. Those are worthless.

    It's 2013. If you don't have a locator w/remote wipe app installed on your phone it deserves to be stolen.

    They'd get a 2fer... steal your phone which has your credit cards, which means you no longer have an easy means to call the bank to cancel it.

    Dusty:
    First off, the article in question doesn't say anything about if any were returned, or if they had remote wipe. And even if they did: great you remote wiped your phone. All your data is safe. Your phone is still stolen.

    Next: Having Remote Wipe on your phone is OBVIOUSLY zero deterrent.

    Third: I steal YOUR phone, run down the street, hop on a bus. If you don't have a pin code, I can reset your phone before you can get home to your PC and track me.

    Yes, remote wipe is great. We should all have it. But it's not going to deter theft. Even. A Tiny. Bit...
