    So... I'd had the XDA modified Google Wallet on my beloved Galaxy S4 for a while. Then I took the upgrade to 4.3 and forfeited root in the process. Today, on a whim, I decided to try to install Wallet from the Play Store, so downloaded it. When I ran it, low and behold... it worked and allowed me to log in.

    Is VZW slipping or did Google modify Wallet to get around their ban?

    It did? When I tried to use it on 4.2, I got the incompatibility error message.

    Why the sudden change on VZW's part?

    Oh OK. But why did VZW change their minds and allow it, or did Google pull a fast one?

    All I know is the benchmark scores in AnTuTu just tanked with the new 4.3 update.

    That's odd. The phone runs smoothly for me. You'd think it'd get at least a similar score to before.

    I'm on Verizon and it is not one of the supported devices according to the set up guide. But, after saying that, it is installed on my s4 with a pin #. I've not used it, yet, so not sure how functional it is, specifically talking about the tap and pay.

    Doesn't matter for me because I live in a time warp with no NFC readers in any stores.
