    Google wouldn't block the app cc they stand to make too much money off of it.

    Verizon is blocking.

    Galaxy s 3 on sprint gets it, but in Verizon, t mobile, and at&t don't?

    The guy is obviously trolling. Why in the world would Google block their own app yet advertise it? That's ed. He is just trying to **** people off.

    wait what? Sprint is the ONLY carrier that has partnered with Google for Google Wallet. All of their handsets with NFC support Google Wallet. What does AT&T, TMobile and Verizon all have in common? They all partnered with ISIS and have all told Google they didn't want it which is why NONE of their carrier-branded NFC capable devices actually support it.

    Also maybe the new Mobile Payment Standards Committee will be more effective than "18 month" update committee.
    Google, U.S. carriers and PayPal join mobile payments standards comittee | Android Central

    The Electronic Transactions Association (ETA) announced that it has formed what they are calling the Mobile Payments Committee -- a group of companies working together to create common standards and advance the current mobile payment situation in the U.S. Notable partners include AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon, as well as other industry partners like Google and ISIS.

    While the companies are all focusing on competing products, they realize the benefit that comes with getting merchants on board working with regulators to get some standard rules in place. According to ETA CEO Jason Oxman, "The idea behind the committee is to get all the players around the table, ask everyone to take off their company hats and put on their industry hats, and talk about what issues need to be resolved."

    We agree. In the end only the companies who can offer what consumers want in a safe and easy to use way will survive, so it's important to get all the rules and standards put in place while the technology is still in the early stages. We don't see any of the participants willing to drop their offerings in favor of another, but hopefully a set of common goals can be used to get mobile payment technology into the public's hands where the best product can win. Waiting until one or more of the partners have pulled ahead will only make it harder to adopt legislation that's fair to all parties.

    The Mobile Payment Committee will hold its first meeting in late August, with regular monthly meetings to follow. We've been crowing for some standardization for a while now, so we think this is great news. The full press release is after the break.

    Can't you just download the apk. file like on the Verizon gnex? I had Google wallet working fine on my Verizon branded Gnex and had no issues just by finding the most current version of the apk. from xda.

    I have it. Google is blocking access to it through the app itself.

    I might be posting this question in the wrong forum thread, as it seems this thread is preoccupied allocating blame for blocking GWallet on the GS3.

    But, I'll give this a try anyway.

    A friend of mine has a Verizon GS3 i535 and is attempting to get Wallet working. I've already figured out how to get the app downloaded, and the phone is rooted, but I have yet to edit the build.prop as I have read can be done to get Wallet working.
    Question: Is there a ROM that I can flash to the i535 that will allow Wallet to work without editing the build.prop? For instance, does anyone know if it will work on CM9 or CM10? For that matter, does anyone know of a stable CM version for the GS3?

    Thanks!

    I don't think there's a ROM that will allow you to do that. The reason for changing the build.prop file is to trick wallet into thinking it's installed on one of the phones in which it's allowed. After installing wallet and setting everything up, you are able to change build.prop back to the original file. I was able to get everything up and running by using the settings for the HTC Jewel. Hopefully this helps.

    Thank you for your answer, sparesr4sissies.

    I would have already gone in and edited the build.prop but, for some reason, the phone gives me an error message every time I try to do a nandroid backup. Until I get the backup issue fixed, I've told him he's just going to have to wait on getting Wallet working.

    What version of recovery are you using and where are you trying to back it up? If the external sdcard, what size is it?

    PJnc284,

    Version :ClockworkMod 5.8.4.8

    External SD card. 9789MB free space.

    It says, "Error while backing up boot image! /tmp/recovery.log was copied to /sdcard/clockworkmod/recovery.log Please open ROM Manager to report the issue."

    They are. Verizon cannot block access to the enter the wallet app itself. That's all Google.

    So you're saying Verizon can somehow reach into googles app? Google is the one blocking access. They are the ONLY one that could do so.

    Please, tell us another story since you have an overactive imagination.

    No but they can tell Google to not make it compatible and why would google want to deal with support issues on a device/network that essentially banished them. Plus you can't even search AND download it directly from the Play Store on the device which verizon certainly has control over. My understanding is that Google Wallet is much more than your usual app and requires both the phone and the app itself to be modified to work effectively. See the Google Wallet issues with the HTC Evo 4GLTE at launch and that's a SPRINT phone.

    That sucks I'm glad that all of these mobile payments are coming together to get the technology out there and the head of the committee works for Verizon so whether it be GW or Isis I'll be able to use the nfc chip for other things then android beam which I haven't used on my GS3 or the 5 nexus phones that I've had. Going in to Mcdonalds and paying with Google wallet was just awesome and a lot of gas stations near me have the terminals so I'm really hoping that some form of nfc enabled payment will be available on my GS3 very soon without having to root a phone with a locked bootloader.

    And there is absolutely no proof that Verizon has done that.
