    Default Question

    Does the 4.4 update remove the carriers restrictions on the Google wallet? Specifically can you use the nfc payment. I read that the carriers restricted the nfc payment feature on Google wallet for "supposed security reasons" and that the 4.4 update is supposed to fix this.

    Your phone still needs to have the proper hardware, but yes, 4.4 moves the system over to Host Card Emulation from a Secure Element. HCE is cloud based, so it can't be locked down on the hardware side.
