    Has anyone with a Verizon branded phone actually received the update notice? I wonder if Verizon is allowing the update.

    And you're sure Samsung doesn't withhold the app unless the carrier can certify or demonstrate that the phone is locked down to Samsung's satisfaction?
    You talking about the line that Verizon is giving? Verizon wants their customers to use Android Pay and will likely put Samsung Pay off as long as they can.

    Everyone already did their testing, Verizon didn't.

    The swipe up is from the border between the edge of the screen and the home button. If you use Nova and have some gestures set already it may confuse you, so I'd advise to delete the Swipe up gesture from Nova if you are planning to use S Pay.
    Changed Nova Settings gesture to pinch in and swipe up, both one and two finger, to None.

    I don't wish to be "Mr. Obvious" here, but for those of you for whom the offer has disappeared, you don't have the S6 or S6 Edge do you? The offer says it's for the Note 5 and S6 Edge+.

    No the offer is online at Samsung Pay.
    But even the offer online says to check the announcements section of the app to redeem.

    Don't get me wrong.. I'm not saying it's lawsuit worthy..just that they don't quite have their [language removed by mod] together yet.

    I never was accepted for the beta, but finally had the install option in the app this morning. Couldn't add my Cabelas visa, so I added my BofA debit card, and that was it.

    It wasn't until later, when I opened the app again that the offer popped up... but the announcements section is empty.

    Having watched the intro video, two finger swipe up should be fine for Nova settings as the Samsung Pay video shows a single finger swipe up.

    It can only be fulfilled from within the app which they remove as soon as you register and add a qualifying card.
    You call here (866) 656-3946

    Or fill out this form and tell them what is going on. Prize logic always gets things taken care of.

    If Samsung was doing a "bait and switch" then the info wouldn't be there and Samsung isn't going to do a bait and switch over some cheap charger or cover.

    No, Verizon says they haven't decided if they are going to allow it or not.

    You'd be surprised how shady Samsung is. They had employees actually eat documents to destroy evidence before investigators made their way into their headquarters. lol

    I've already requested Samsung to look into it but haven't receive any response yet.

    This is the info I got from a support chat with Samsung...
    We are aware this morning that the promotion site is not currently working properly. We are working on the issue, and the Announcement has been turned off. The in-app popup however, is still being displayed. We are working on shutting that off as well.
    The Offer will be Turned ON soon and you will receive the Pop Up in Samsung pay as soon as it activates.

    Well with me being a Samsung only user for the last 15 years, I've run into the exact opposite thing.

    They are shady but you are going to put your debit and credit card info in their app?

    Not until the region where that 920i version is from is included in the Samsung Pay program. That was the main reason I opted for a T-Mobile Note 5 instead of the Unlocked version because even when all versions have the hardware, this is controlled by firmware and it's easy for Samsung to control the access to Samsung Pay to just the regions where is currently released, as of today, only Korea and USA. So all firmware for these 2 regions will be the only ones with S Pay working.

    Most Unlocked versions are for India, Europe and Australia, and sorry, but according to S Pay press releases, all those regions are schedule for at some point next year, not even a certain date as of now.

    So my first official attempt was a success, using my BofA debit at one of our soda machines. But... aside from the reader switching from "Please swipe card" to "Make selection," there was no other indication that it worked.

    After I scanned my print, the app began a slow pulsing vibrate, with a sort of countdown / progress bar being displayed.

    The soda machine reacted almost instantly, though there was no change in the app. There was an "x" I could press to cancel or, once the progress bar reached the end there was a refresh symbol which would I assume continue the process if necessary.

    I received no confirmations or notifications.

    But I did get my soda...

    Just in case you haven't done it, go to your Applications Manager and look for Samsung Pay framework app, hit force stop then clear cache and hit Manage storage, it will take you to Samsung pay app, there hit force stop and clear cache and data, I'd add to uninstall all updates, then reboot.

    After the reboot go to the Samsung pay place holder and download the app again and see if it works after that.

    Why not? I have fraud protection with my bank. Besides, I know a lot of big corporations have shady business practices who's services I use. Even the banks that we have credit cards with have shady business practices which is why we see them in the news getting fined for this and that but I'm not blind to what these big corporations do just because nothing bad has happened to me "yet". My Samsung french door refrigerator accumulates water under the pullout tray and freezes which I have to constantly breakup and remove. Many customers are experiencing this as well when I attempted to troubleshoot on the Internet. I've learned my lesson with their refrigerators. So far, their phones haven't let me totally down yet so I will keep using them along with other smartphone brands.

    Check out a YouTube vide. Search "Samsung Pay Working on Verizon Note 5!!!. View video then look in the comments section for 2 apks to download. I installed Samsung Pay on my Verizon Note 5 and successfully added my BofA card. I received confirmation from my bank. Now I need to see if it works at the stores.

    In the More- Settings area you activates the Notifications. With that on, once the transactions goes through you get the App notification of the transaction, for now, that's your only indication.

    I seriously doubt a company as big as Samsung is going to fraud people over a charger that probably costs them $10 or less to make. Something in the offer isn't working, let them know.

    I know. I was just being sarcastic. I'm still waiting for a response. I also went to the page we are directed to to make the order and they only had the fast charging wireless pad on the page to choose from but the offer states it's only good towards the non fast charging version. This was before they removed the promotion form the Announcement page.
