    If you haven't downloaded google wallet yet I suggest you do it and go out and wow every cashier in site.

    That feeling is just awesome..

    Just left a 7-11 where I asked the guy had He ever seen someone pay with their phone before and He said no in disbelief. 3 seconds later my transaction was done and the cashiers mouth dropped as I was walking out the door.

    Simply amazing!

    I tried but was unsuccessful. I heard a beep, my phone said SENT, but there was no dollar amount or completed transaction at the register. The transaction shows up in the Wallet app, but there is no dollar amount listed. I need to try it at another location to see if was their register or my phone. When you tap the phone, should you see a dollar amount for the transaction on your phone, or does it only say SENT?

    If you click on the question mark next to the sent it will tell you what happens.

    I want to use it so bad! Why did I have to be unlucky and get the Secure Element error. Now I won't be able to use it. I am going to try and get a new phone tomorrow. Whats a good excuse to make verizon give me a new one?

    That it's not a properly functioning device. It doesn't matter that Google Wallet is officially not available, if it was available it wouldn't work on your phone. You need a new one. It's covered by the warranty.

    I wonder how long it'll take till they going to integrate state IDs into this technology.
    -Good evening, officer.
    -Good evening, can I see your phone?

    To bad none of my favorite stores have NFC :( . There's a McDonalds that has it, I never ate a burger in my life at McDonalds , I guess it's time to start.

    Tells me there is "No amount available for this transaction..."

    I think the BP registers are setup that they need to press "Credit" after the Beep, which the cashier did not do. I'll try again, or try McD's and see what happens.
