    Idk but it seems to me that u guys really don't have a idea of how many stores that people frequent accept Google wallet. At least 4 places I go daily accept wallet. McDonald's, Walgreens, BP, and Home Depot have had wallet for years.

    Or perhaps we do and we just don't frequent those. Personally I prefer Lowe's and RiteAid.

    Those was just a few examples and I prefer CVS to Riteaid and CVS has it also.

    The thing about MST is that it doesn't require any special set up on the part of the vendor. It is, in essence, a substitute for swiping your credit card. That's the reason why it's a much more robust alternative to NFC payment systems since almost every vendor has a swipe reader but only a select few have NFC capability. The only readers that won't take MST are the ones where you have to dip the card in, like gas station pumps, because the card physically activates the reader.

    The only issue I see is when you're at a restaurant or bar or something like that. Would still need your credit card unless you're comfortable with handing the waiter or bartender your phone.

    And even then, you can't do that because of the thumb reading, right?

    It is interesting but it is not a reason for me when choosing a phone.

    Correct. I've been seeing more and more restaurants pop up that have the handheld card readers so the waiter can swipe at the table though. Still very uncommon, but when you think about it, it makes more sense than some sketchy dude walking to the back of the room with your CC and returning 10 mins later. It's one thing that I always wondered about when it comes to people panicking about credit card theft and having their identity stolen. We are handing our credit card to strangers at restaurant and letting them go out of sight with it.....

    Yeah it's pretty bizarre. We just somehow trust them with it for some reason.

    Chili's has the table stations, but that's pretty much it as far as I know.

    I just hope that when Costco adopts wireless payments that they will support Samsung Pay in addition to Apple Pay.

    That's just it, with Samsung pay, Costco and others don't have to sign up they just work right out of the box with any MST card swiping box... Well you'll have to put your cards on it first.

    Don't you have to input your credit cards into Apple Pay just the same?

    I've missed this Samsung payment feature. Is it on both s6 models (edge and plain)? Does it work with all 3 storage options (32, 64, 128)?

    But of course. But that doesn't mean that you can now use it everywhere in the US.

    Unlike with Samsung pay, with Apple Pay, Apple has to now not only get larger corporations to sign up but now install the NFC readers too so that you then can use it. This process is still slow going and not all businesses will have the readers installed anytime soon.

    Then you have the smaller family owned stores and franchises that might not want to invest money to add the readers.
    At least here in the US, any business that takes credit cards is already able to work with Samsung pay right away.

    That could possibly explain why its not going live until summer or possibly fall. MST should be less of an issue?

    I'm going to wait until maybe first quarter '16 to decide whether or not Samsung Pay is really taking off and useful. I'm sure the Note series will have it.
