    Default Google Wallet problem?

    I just got the S3 yesterday so I'm new to Google Wallet.

    I rooted the phone as soon as I got it. I tried to use Google Wallet today several times at 2 vending machines that takes paypass, but I kept getting an error message that says "Mastercard Debit cards are not accepted".

    I tried with 4 different credit cards, 3 of them being Visa. I see that my "virtual card" is a Mastercard, could that be the problem?

    My card works directly on the paypass device, just not through Wallet.

    Any one had this problem? Thanks

    Sounds like the issue may be on the vendor side and their hardware. I've had my own experiences with nonfunctioning equipment at a retailer.

    However, are you using the Sprint variant of the galaxy s3? If not, in order to use the Google Wallet (after rooting), you might have to tweak the build prop. If you are using Sprint, I would try resetting (through settings) google wallet as well as clearing the cache. Then try again.

    Had the same problem this morning. Just got my GS3 on the 2nd and used GWallet at a fast food place. The terminal registered the NFC on my phone but the I got a message on the GWallet screen saying that the store's reader was faulty.
    The store management had the nerve to tell me that it works when you put a dongle or NFC enabled card on it. And I then had to explain that my phone uses the same NFC chip as the dongles/nfc cards.

    In the end they had to just flat out admit that they haven't been trained on excepting payments other than card swipes and cash.

    Simply put, I really don't need to eat under the "Golden Arches" anyway.
