    Totally Plausible. Apparantly ISIS is supported by a consortium of Verizon AT&T and TMobile (no Sprint). A little collusion perhaps?

    Here's what I dont get with this theory. How did the phone get this far, and Samsung/VZW shipped these phone to stores, with something like this left undecided. Wouldn't Google Wallet have either been put on or not put on the phone when they were being manufactured and setup?

    Google Wallet is software. It could easily be pushed remotely once the devices are activated for the first time.

    I've never heard the expression "with a grain of salt" until I started following the Nexus. Now I either read it or hear it on a review video 10+ times a day.

    I get that. I guess my question is, shouldn't something like what software is coming with the phone have been decided on before the phones were built, packaged, and shipped to the stores? I dont see how the phones got this far along in the process with something like whether or not 1 of googles main apps would be allowed on the phone to be decided on? Unless google wallet isn't a pre-installed app and instead something that can be downloaded from the market place?

    Well its obvious that's this is why the invoices were to be left on the merchandise and no advertising for the phone. If Google wallet has to be on phone then Verizon will return the phones and not sell them.

    Haha, are you a cnet fan by chance? They have been ironically using "collusion/consortium" this week.
