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