    I know that the S4 has built in NFC but I haven't read much on how to actually use it to pay for stuff etc

    Any guides about that I've missed?

    Thanks. Very useful video. Seems to be that Google wallet isn't available in the UK. Does that mean that UK users can't pay for things using NFC?

    Here is an older article, but it sounds like U.K. consumers aren't too keen on using NFC.

    ATT is a member of the ISIS NFC payment system with Verizon and t mobile. They have effectively locked out Google wallet with out rooting and modding the S4.

    I have Google wallet on my nexus 4 and love it. I have nothing on my Note 2 because I do not want to use ISIS.

    Lots of threads in other forums etc.

    That's very annoying. Seems ashame that someone like Google doesn't allow UK users so that it can increase awareness of nfc in the UK

    I did a little search to see where Google Wallet NFC payments were accepted in my area, and I had one.
    A Kid's Foot locker.
    Sweet.

    I zoomed out the map and found a huge cluster in Dallas, surely that would be the case?
    Every freaking Foot Locker variant, and that was all.

    I think the only other place I've seen it was at a Walgreen's.

    Surely it can be used anywhere that has nfc card machines?

    I'd assume so but to date, the only place I've actually SEEN one is at a Walgreen's (I assume you're in the UK from your posts - Walgreen's is a chain pharmacy/small goods store in the US, if you weren't familiar with it ). I would have expected many more by now to be honest.
    I know I have to try sometime but I have this strange feeling it won't work when I do, and then I sit there like an dummy waving my phone and pissing off the cashier by trying to be cool.

    This is very odd. Everyone was saying that Samsung and Visa had inked a deal to integrate Visa PayWave into the S4. I have several Visa PayWave cards and use them all the time. Most EFTPOS machines in New Zealand have PayWave now. What gives??

    Yes I am haha. Your phone won't work unless you have a nfc mobile wallet which I know is not available for the uk

    The phone has the technology to use nfc but the app is not available. I know in the UK places like McDonald's and food shops have nfc.

    Seems like the us seems to get more features than us which is pretty much always the case

    Check the mastercard pay pass website or app. There are many more places in dfw than that to use Google wallet.

    We should have the choice to use which we want. Att has removed my choice, so I will stick with Google wallet on my nexus.

    Depends on where you live. In San Diego, where I live, there are tons of places to use my phone for payments and I always find it much easier if they do take NFC payments. Its definitely spreading in my area.
