    So... I've been searching the last few weeks for a Google wallet apk to put on my phone, and i can't find one that is actually working. Google got their stuff straightened out and it now is working again, but no older versions will. None of the gapps packages contain it, and there is no recent apk. If anyone has a recent version, PLEASE POST IT. :)

    Go to market (play store). Then download the app called "get Google wallet" and follow the instructions. Works good and gives you the links etc

    I'd do it but since I only use AMEX, guess I'm outta luck. I'm sure as hell not putting my MC check card on there and not doing the Google pre paid card either. :blink: Since my AMEX card has the rfid chip in it anyway I just use it that way. However, I 'm finding more stores doing away with that tech as they say it wasn't beneficial for them, Best Buy being one of them. I was shocked and told the guy there that it always worked for me but he said that very few people used it so they canned it. BOoo!!

    I just tried this method and no love. Guess VZW caught on to the workaround. Are there any other methods out there to get the official app without having to root? I just got my Nexus a little over a week ago so I am a bit late to the game.

    I thought maybe I was missing a step so I've gone back and tried again a few times. Followed the instructions exactly, even followed along with the video. Still not working...I think my issue is where the sign-in is needed. I did initially sign out of the Market/Play Store, and then went through this process. When I get to the sign-in, I log in, then follow the steps, and when it opens in the Play Store I still get the message of "This has been blocked by your carrier" and no option to install it.

    I can give you the most recent .apk, but every time it's updated you'll have to side-load the new version again. Luckily, I linked my side-loaded wallet app before the market became "play store" and now my wallet updates from within the play store. I'll have to upload it as a zip though and you'll have to extract it. I'm emailing it to myself now. I'll edit my post with the attachment.

    edit: apparently 4.38 MB is too big of an upload for this forum. :p so he's a link to a place I uploaded it to.

    Yeah, I wasn't sure either. May have something to do with Market vs. Play Store? Not sure...

    This worked...thank you! At least, it's installed...I'm gonna go try it out at lunch and see if it actually works. Lunch on Google today (hopefully). ;)

    Looks like it functions! Just made a transaction at a local convenience store. The cashier was blown away. LOL. I thought it was pretty cool too...

    The workaround for Google Wallet for me

    I had an old version of google wallet, from before the unsupported device message came out, so I figured I should update it just in case. I recently updated to the newest version by using my computer. There is an extension for Google Chrome called APK Downloader. Once setup, it lets you go to the play store, and in the address bar there is an icon that lets you download the apk to your computer, and then you can side load the app from there.

    This will work on any free app, even if none of your devices are compatable (like google wallet for me). I have used it a few other times when there was an app that was "not compatable" with my Galaxy Nexus, or with my Galaxy Tab, and then side loaded the app to it and it works perfectly fine. Not sure why it says "not compatable" if it seems to work, I guess it is not officially supported.
