    From what I've read, the Verizon update may have enabled whatever needs to be unlocked to make Samsung Pay work, but the update did not include Samsung Pay. (It was to patch some vulnerabilities.) Sounds like Samsung now needs to make it available in Google Play (or maybe the Samsung app store?), but that hasn't happened yet.

    Still no update for me. Where is the Samsung app store? I don't see it on my phone.

    The Verizon release notes for the update specifically say this prepares the phone for Samsung Pay and that it will soon be available on the Play Store.

    That's what I like to hear. The release notes weren't available yesterday when the update was pushed. Thank you.

    Did you do the manual system update? The Samsung app store is under Galaxy Apps icon on my phone.

    That's awesome. Now I can spend the weekend pinging the Google Play store. :-)

    Just had a funny thought: The way Verizon operates, I wonder if the Samsung Pay app will be crippled so it only works in the Verizon store or uses NFC or something.

    I read that the S6 and S6 edge are pushing now. I'm on the plus so I guess I have to wait a little longer.

    Thanks, was looking for Samsung Apps never even noticed the Galaxy Apps icon. Haven't owned a Samsung in years.

    There should be a scheduled task that goes out and automatically checks Google Play store for us. LOL Wouldn't that be nice?

    Samsung Pay is available on the app store now. I installed it on my S6 Edge but when I run the app it needs to install a new security policy and the framework fails. There are a few reviews on the app store already citing the same issue.

    I suppose the servers are just not 100% up and running yet.

    Not showing up for me yet. Just checked Google Play and the Samsung app store. (I searched on "Samsung Pay." Did you find it some other way?)

    Use the Samsung pay search but you will have to scroll down about a hundred apps before you see it. Not sure what that's about....competition?

    Sorry if I'm being dense, but do you mean search the term "Samsung pay" in the Google Play app store or search in the Samsung app store through the Galaxy app?

    Yup, exact same here. Found it, downloaded it, installed it, then got the "try again later" message when I went to open it.

    I got the update from yesterday that said it was to allow Samsung Pay to work. I'm going to contact Samsung on the chat and see what they say.
