    I was bold enough to go to 7-11 without my credit card. As I was walking into the store and logging into Google Wallet. I got a message: "Unfortunately, Google Wallet has not yet been certified in your country or on your device/carrier." I researched this a little bit (just look at the google play reviews and all the EVO LTE people have been posting this issue. I changed my rating to a 1 star. So after seeing this is a common issue I walked home with no Gatorade.

    Google has totally dropped the ball from not including visa, to the secure element and now to this. What a disaster this has been for Google. The good thing about a credit card is that they work 99.99% of the time. I have made about 10 trips/uses with GW and now it doesn't work. So even though 90% sounds good. Its actually really bad.

    I think all EVO LTE owners may have this issue but hopefully it gets fixed and soon. Did I say this was one of the main reasons I upgraded from 3D to LTE?

    Contact Sprint and they will tell you that you are the only one experiencing this problem...

    The last thing I would do is call Sprint for help. lol. But I called just to let them know about the issue so they have 1 extra log of the issue. However they arent open late.

    Lots of EVO LTE users are showing their unhappiness with bad reviews on google play. This is a great great way to get their attention. Just put EVO LTE in the subject, give them a 1 star and let them have it! lol

    You would be surprised but this works.

    Could you imagine being in a taxi relying on GW and no credit card to pay for your ride and getting this message? What would happen in this case? Would you get arrested? lol

    You guys get so worked up over these things. Its a brand new phone, using a relatively new app, using a technology that is not widely adapted. I'm not surprised they are having some issues. That being said, people who have transferred money onto the Google Debit Card do have a right to know what is going on. They should be communicating better about the problem but people expecting this to be perfect at this point I think are expecting too much.

    More disturbing is the fact that I have not seen not ONE story on Android Central, Engadget, or any of the other major tech sites about this issue. I mean Google wallet basically gets shut out for Evo owners and the tech industry remains quiet?

    Why?

    EDIT: I could be wrong about this. If I am, someone please post a link, but I haven't seen one.

    I am waiting for a google update as well. Although I am sure the fix works, I am not risking secure element.

    --- Major Tech sites (i.e. Engadget, CNET, The Verge, Gizmodo, PCMag, etc.) I saw an article on Android Police, and of course, the link you provided. Did not know about Pocketables. I don't read that site. perhaps I should start.

    P.S. Yes, I consider AC a major tech site.

    FYI, this isn't affecting all EVO 4G LTE users. I'm not having any problems accessing or using google wallet on mine. I just paid for dinner with it last night. I'm not rooted yet and have never reset my google wallet settings and never reset the device either. I also only have a google pre-paid card loaded, no credit cards.

    Those of you that are having problems... Have you ever reset google wallet settings and are you rooted?

    Same here, brand new HTC EVO 4G LTE, not rooted, google play says device/country are not supported. Boo, that's one of the main reasons for buying this phone!

    FYI, I just got my SGS3 yesterday and got the same message after installing GW. I know this is the EVO forum, but it appears to be more than just an EVO problem. AT&T is the carrier.
