    Error:

    Device Not Ready
    Wallet is unable to proceed until this device is fully initialized. Make sure the phone has network access and try rebooting if the problem persists.

    EXIT

    anyone else...? fix...?

    I don't actually have a device here, and just going by what you wrote, did you happen to reboot it yet?

    I had some issues with Google Wallet when I first set it up but its working now. Keep trying to set it up, took me about 4 tries to get it working.

    I can't get Wallet to work on mine. I've tried 4 times now. The first time it popped up and asked for my pin. When I entered it, it just thought about it for 2 mins and failed. The next three times, the app never even popped up to try and make payment. Is it my phone? The app? The fact that I'm using Straight Talk?

    If you are getting this message "wallet is unable to proceed until this device is fully initialized" while trying to open Google Wallet on your Nexus 4, I found a fix for my device. Here are the steps I took.

    1. Turn your phone off and back on.
    2. Go to Settings -> Apps -> All -> Wallet.
    3. Clear the Cache and Data.
    4. Disable the app. Reenable it.
    5. Then, open Google Play and try to purchase a song (or anything else that is cheap).
    6. After you finish your purchase, open Google Wallet app from your phone. It will allow you to choose the email account to set up Google Wallet.

    After going through these steps Google Wallet will open normally.

    I did this, except for the purchase, and it was successful! These steps (minus making a purchase) are pretty much what I had been trying for the last couple weeks. The version of Wallet in the Play Store would initialize correctly, but it wouldn't add my credit card. The latest Wallet version, of which I had an .apk, wouldn't even initialize. Just now, Sunday, January 6, 2013, at 8:00 PM EST, it initialized and everything went through. It appears that Google just got their issues sorted out. Anyway, whatever happened that it works, I'm very pleased!

    The Wallet app will now initialize properly and cards can be added successfully.

    Nothing posted in this thread worked for me, not even clearing the data for NFC service in addition to Wallet. Today I tried again and it just worked. I had Wallet set up before I got this phone, and it was able to get right in and see all the cards I had attached to my account. A couple hours later I got this e-mail from Google support:

    Hello,

    Thank you for your patience while we've investigated the 'Device not ready' error that you are experiencing. We have been working on this issue non-stop, and we've just made a change that we hope fixes this issue as of this afternoon 1/17/13.

    Please clear the data of your Wallet app by navigating to your device Settings > Apps > Wallet, then select 'Clear data.' Then, please try to set up the Wallet again.

    If these steps still do not resolve your issue, please let me know and we will attempt to address it as soon as possible.
    It didn't work when trying to buy some stuff at CVS earlier, but it tried. I'm guessing CVS's paypass reader wasn't working properly.

    Nothing has worked for me. The version from XDA doesn't get past initial start up and force closes. The version from the Play Store sets up but shows "request failed" for my debit/credit cards. That leads me to call Bs on that email from Google I have am open ticket with them and I never got that email.

    I had the same problem....make sure you have version 1.5-R87-v15. I didn't and when I installed that version on my N4 it worked perfectly. You can download the APK here: Download New Google Wallet APK 1.5

    Already tried that version. It hangs at the "setting up Wallet" screen.

    how about if you root your phone, go into the recovery mode, wipe the data cache, dalvik cache and reboot your phone.

    by the way, for everybody who thinks mobile payment is useless and nobody is using it.
