    Has anyone tried Tap & Pay on your newly upgraded VZW Moto X? I do not see that option within Google Wallet.

    I will need to stop at a 7-11 and give it a try (and really embarrass myself if it doesn't work).

    Ok. I figured it out.

    Uninstall the play store version. Make sure you clear data and cache first.

    Go here : http://phandroid.com/2013/11/14/nexu...le-wallet-apk/

    Download the APK for the nexus 5

    Install. Follow instructions.

    Good to go!!!

    Okay. Thank you. I'll have to try when I get home. I can't download it right now.

    Will this mess anything up if I sideload it on the Moto X? (i.e: future Wallet upgrades, etc...)

    I'm wondering this as well. I saw in another thread that the reason it isn't working right now is we just need an update from the play store anyway. Debating if I just wait for that or try this.

    I've had no luck. Tried uninstalling, restarting and still had no luck. I'm on a VZW 4.4 Moto X. Any suggestions?

    Worked for me too!

    I went to Rite Aid and got some candy.

    It didn't faze the cashier at all. She acted like people pay with their phone every day.

    Before you uninstall, make sure you delete the data. You need to go to Settings / Apps and uninstall from there.

    Or people can deactivate Google Wallet on the Google Wallet website if they forget to delete the data before uninstalling.

    I didn't delete the data or anything that drastic. I just downloaded the Nexus 5 apk and it installed right over the previous Google Wallet app I had on my phone. I went through the quick 2 screens on the Google Wallet app to enable tap and pay and it worked. Went to tap and pay in the settings and Google Wallet is now showing. I'm good to go! Thanks Motorola. I'm really glad I took advantage of the upgrade glitch to keep my unlimited data on Verizon. Best move I've made.

    Tried it. For some reason this phone won't show up in the Google Wallet website. I removed all other phones on the site. Then I cleared data, uninstalled, and reinstalled. I even tried putting $20 onto wallet.

    You did use the copy of Wallet mentioned in post #2, correct?

    Tried this method after seeing it at Droid Life earlier. Successfully purchased a bottle of water from a Paypass-enabled vending machine at work.

    So where are you on this - APK loads, it runs, but no device on Wallet website?

    I just loaded, but forgot to clear data, and the Nexus APK reset the data for me. Came right up. This was after realizing I needed to turn NFC on to enable Tap & Pay.

    It now shows the device on wallet.google.com. On the app "Tap and pay will not work" appears in the card. I did notice this in settings:

    This is a shot in the dark, but do you have NFC turned on?

    It took some work and an update to Wallet, but think I finally got Wallet ready for Tap and Pay on my soaked VZW Moto X w/ 4.4...if'n I can ever find a pay point terminal here in Podunk, VA.

    I even got a $0.53 deposit to my checking account from Google as part of the confirmation process!
