    Haha I know right?

    I went to a store yesterday in downtown Richmond Va. Three people were shocked of what i did. So logically I said, "I'm from the future" and walked out.

    Very logical indeed. When I make my next purchase it shall be in front of someone. So when they ask what was that. I will reply in the same fashion. Except, I will then in turn ask them if they sell plutonium at said location. It will end with them asking what and me repeating there question and looking around.

    I will then turn to whomever is with me and respond: "We need to find some to power the 21 jigawats to get you back to 1985".

    Well...first and foremost, your phone has to have an NFC chip. To the best of my knowledge, only the Nexus S sports one (both the 3G and 4G versions).

    Might be confused with "Naked Field Communication".
    Or as we say from the South "Nekkid"

    I used it at 7-11 and it worked flawlessly.

    I used my 10 bucks to buy a 6 pack of Lagunitas IPA and some beef jerky. Thanks Google.
    Brilliant!

    I used the prepaid card (Thanks for the ten spot, Google), at a McDonald's to pick my wife up a healthy snack before her math test. Everything was flawless. It worked very fast, the employee was surprised, she said, "You swiped your card really fast." After she shared the process with her friends and several customers, and while I was filling the soda cups, I heard a "Young wipper-snappers, and their new fangled technology." That was the best part of it.

    Quick info, please.

    To make a purchase - you have to have NFC checked. Do you have to have the Google Wallet app open? I've seen video where they are on their home screen, tap and the phone automatically opens Google Wallet. Is that the way it works?

    Thanks, in advance.

    For the Google prepaid card, am I supposed to select credit or debit? My credit card works fine, but I haven't been able to use the prepaid card successfully yet.

    Credit. I've used prepaid flawlessly at 7-12 CVS and a coke vending machine. Haven't tried McDonald's yet. Lol. But with the track record I would assume no problem.

    Is your prepaid card enabled in the app with the green switch under it?

    I haven't tried it yet, but it seems like it would require you log in with your PIN first to "unlock" the wallet, as the NFC transaction relies on the single tap to transfer the data. Otherwise, seems like that would be a pretty huge security hole.

    When I was trying out the prepaid, yes. Oh well. Google can keep its $10 I guess

    Unlocked screen. Tap without app open. Enter pin when app opens. Tap again. Real quick and easy.

    If your waiting online you could open the app and put your pin in before. By default after one minute it will relock itself and the pin will be needed if you tap after that. You can change how long it will wait to lock again.

    AWESOME.
    Mostly bp gas stations and mcdonalds accept them.

    So i went to mcdonalds, and the guy checking me out was blown away, said "that's really slick and i need that"
    Lol

    Basically I enabled the card, stuck it up to the mcdonalds pad, it asked for my pin, then on the nexus screen said tap again, so i did so and touched the pad again and it went through.

    I may just be a Google Wallet fan boy; but, does anyone think it works fast than your actual credit cards with blink/paypass/etc?

    Used it at CVS again on my girlfriends phone. (Well she used it). Did it and then I went to use my credit card and it just seemed like it took longer to register/read/process. Maybe cause Google Wallet is exciting and you lose conception of time and do some extra things, lol. Using my credit card was boring. Hahaha.

    AHAHAHAHAHA. I signed up for Google Wallet alerts when it was first announced. The ones that let you know when it comes out. I just got an email now telling me Google Wallet was released.

    Worked like a charm the first time I tried, I've never had my phone pay for my groceries before, that was pretty awesome. It was like finding a en on the ground, only google gave it to me, which is awesome

    It's been a week since I updated and I still can't use Wallet! I am not able to add the prepaid card, it says it's being "provisioned" and then after a while I have to force close it. Any ideas?

    Just used it for the first time at our local McDonald's. It really does seem like it's faster than using a credit card... not just the obvious part (not having to take it out and swipe it) but the authentication process too!

    Also, it was quite satisfying buying a quick meal on Google's dime!

    How does it work exactly can you load multiple cards. Does it show your balance for each card ? I'm assuming you could switch to what ever card you want ?
