    And there is absolutely no proof that Verizon has done that.
    So let me see if I understand.

    Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile are (or were up until very recently) working together on their own mobile payment system (ISIS) to compete with Google Wallet.

    Sprint is the only carrier with official Google Wallet support.

    Google wants to make money in the local ad space. It would stand to reason that they would want their app on all the major and minor carriers phones they can.

    But you think Google only wants to work with Sprint or something?

    Seems like it is in Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile interest NOT to have Google Wallet on their phones if they are going to launch a competing service.

    Seems like it is Google's best interest to have Google Wallet on as many different phones no matter what the carrier.

    But it is Google is going out of it's way to block access to Google Wallet to all the carriers but Sprint?

    Are u sure it isn't just a software update of the phone. I know I got that message until they did a fix to allow my handset to be compatible with it about a month ago

    I bought nexus 4 in US and was able to use it without any simcard, but on wifi. I was able to pay at couple of locations and see tran history when wifi is connected.
    Now, I am temporarily in the UK. Even before I inserted a sim card, googel wallet displays "unfortunately google wallet is not available....network" message.

    So, this makes me believe that Google is using either wifi networks or gps to determine location and not allowing access.
