    Damn! Looks like I won't be able to order the nexus 4 tomorrow, since every time I try to order something from the play store I get this message:

    "Uh oh. There was a problem.
    We couldn't start your purchase because of a technical issue.
    Details of the problem below:
    Sorry, we were unable to process this request. Any charge will be automatically cancelled within 24 hours. Please try again after 24 hours."

    Is anyone else getting this error, and does anyone know how to fix it? I have already contacted Google support, and am awaiting a response from a "specialist" that will take 2 business days. I hope it doesn't sell out by then...

    They are probably doing some work on their back end related to getting the Nexus 4 and 10 ready for sale. Probably just a little maintenance.

    Nothing to freak out about.




    Then again that's basically what this forum has become.

    Good thing I checked this thread. I am originally signed into my .edu account and it does not support Wallet. Just signed into my google account and it works fine. Imagine trying to buy then having to switch accounts then having it sold out? lol


    Btw OP. GL!

    It's everything to freak out about! I can't purchase anything from the store. Music. Nexus 7 (not actually trying to buy one just trying to see if checkout works). But it doesn't.

    Well it's only 4:10PST, so we've got about 8 hours until the supposed launch time.

    So lets just relax until then and not flood the forums with stuff like this

    I don't see how it would magically start working for me in 8 hours.

    And conversely, I don't see why this problem would persist for the next 8 hours.

    See what I mean?

    Wait a few hours and try again instead of trying every minute and freaking out.

    Well these are the Android Central forums, so I'm not sure what kind of solution you're trying to find here, but you might do better by contacting Google support since they could actually give you answer.

    As posted above, I already have contacted Google support, and I posted here to see if it was just me or if a lot of other people are also experiencing this issue and to see if anyone knew how to fix it.

    So I've tried different computers, different browsers, different cards, and still getting the damn error. Maybe its because I made my wallet account today?

    Are the cards on the same bank? If so the bank may be working on their system or just not answering request at this time.

    I tried fake ordering the Nexus 7 and the circle in middle just kept on spinning and this was FireFox, I tried that 4 times, downloaded Chrome browser and rebooted the browser once and then logged on and was able to make a successful fake attempt to see if I would get taxed on the Nexus 7 and I was at little over 8% taxed... of course you could have some kind of firewall on both computers?
