    I was curious if Google Wallet was still blocked from Verizon because I know they have their own program but does AT&T block Google Wallet as well?

    Google Wallet should work as long as your phone has KitKat.

    Carriers have blocked it in favor of softcard with exception if sprint.... Unless they changed the policy a few months ago which I doubt

    It has worked for me for a long time VZW. I'm not sure what changed, maybe when my OS upgraded. But it used to be blocked.

    Samsung S4. Looking at it now. It should my Google Store purchases.

    Of course the only place I know of that takes mobile payments is Starbucks, and I wouldn't set foot in one of those horrible places.

    That's what TGP was saying. Once KitKat was available, Google Wallet worked for tap-to-pay on all carriers with the exception of three phones. The Note 3 was one of the exceptions, but it didn't have anything to do with which carrier it was on.

    Google needs to stand the hell up to these carriers and say enough is enough of this "we are gonna support or develop our own software crap". Apple doesn't allow it on their phones but yet google allows them to disable their product in favor of some other BS. What gives?? I for one use google wallet daily on my nexus 4 and planned on to continue with my note 4 when it arrives..............well, if I can

    Google already did that. In KitKat, Google used what has been described as "clever coding" to work around the carriers' restrictions. Google Wallet/tap to pay works on most devices with KitKat and NFC, with a couple exceptions because of other hardware restrictions. The Note 3 used to be on that list, but it was taken off and now works. I think we can safely assume that this will continue with Android L.

    In short, if your device has KitKat and NFC, you will likely be able to use tap to pay even if you have a carrier branded phone.

    Thanks for replies. Reason why I was asking because Apple has Apple Pay and I'm switching from a iPhone 5S to the Note 4 so I was just curious to see if Google Wallet was still blocked like it used to. Thanks!

    If you are asking about tap & pay in Google wallet, it will not work on the Verizon Note 3. Softcard (formally ISIS) works the same way on Verizon note 3 as Google Wallet tap & pay on Sprint.

    I don't think anyone knows about the Note 4 yet, it's a hardware issue on the Note 3. Waiting to see on the Note 4 but not a deal breaker for me, softcard works just fine e.

    I just updated Google Wallet on my Note 3 and I still don't have the tap-to-pay option on it.

    Support for HCE on the NFC chip in the Verizon, ATT, and TMO Note 3's does not exist in 4.4.2, which is the latest version that all those Note 3's are running. Support should be in 4.4.4 for that chip but none of those phones have that yet.

    The Sprint Note 3 has a different, older chip that had support as soon as Google switched over to HCE from the secure element since Sprint was already running 4.4.2 when that switch occurred. Sprint Note 3 is now on 4.4.4 but it didn't need to wait for 4.4.4 since the chip support was already in 4.4.2.

    No carrier is blocking google wallet anymore and no carrier can block tap and pay now in google wallet. As long as the chip in the Note 4 is supported in 4.4.4, google wallet tap and pay will work on any US carrier phone.
