    This has been known for a while, they partnered up with ISIS, another NFC payment company a few months back. You'll still be able to flash a custom kernel to the Nexus if you really want Google wallet.

    Unlocking bootloader, rooting and possibly needing to flash a ROM will take care of this. Verizon can try and screw us but in the end the community will win.

    it voids the Google Wallet terms of service.. does that mean ISIS will make its way onto the Nexus?

    It's not only Verizon doing this eventually AT&T and T mobile will block Google wallet as well per the ISIS partnership.

    Right now the only carrier supporting Google wallet will be sprint.

    This makes me so mad. this is wrong on so many levels. I don't care if its a feature I use frequently or not. limiting competition and consumer's choices is down right wrong.

    The reason why they can do that is because you're still going to buy it. (That's not a literal you)

    I don't understand your anger here... Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile have a contract with ISIS. Sprint has a contract with Google Wallet. So, just like Sprint users won't be able to use the ISIS software, Verizon, AT&T, ant T-Mobile users won't be able to use Google Wallet. This is not a Nexus issue, it's just the way it is.
