    I am using ISIS Wallet at the same stores I used GW. ISIS works anywhere contactless payments are accepted. In other words... you don't have to live in Austin or Provo to use ISIS.

    Note.... If you are using a SIM from a prior device, I don't think ISIS will work. I got a new SIM with the S4 and it works with ISIS.

    AT&T, Verizon & T-Mobile block Google Wallet. Sprint is the only carrier allowing access to Google Wallet, the rest are Isis. I have been using Isis for a while now and I have no problems with it. Not bad at all.

    That's strange, it comes up for me. It won't work though cause I'm rooted. I also need to switch to that new SIM.

    Okay, I have installed Isis. I have a credit card tied to the account and have the $10.00 signing bonus card. I go to McDonalds and CVS and no worky. I have NFC on but just noticed that S-Beam was not on. Do I need one or the other on, or both? I am tired of looking like a dork waving my phone across the pad and holding up the line.

    I installed, it instantly popped up saying my device isn't supported. Couldn't access the secure element. Does this mean I don't have an NFC enabled SIM?

    !!Update!!- Didn't have an NFC enabled SIM, even though I thought I did. Activated the SIM that came with the S4, and now all is good.

    Tried it again and made sure the both Sbeam and NFC were on. Still not working for me. Had the green icon in the top bar too. Neither the phone or the reader at McDonalds gave any feedback.

    Finally got ISIS working on my Note 2 from Verizon, in Orange County, Ca. No Root, or Custom Rom. Just works and $35.00 to use. Wish it were Google Wallet, but can not have everything.:-)

    You need to make sure you have one of their new NFC SIM cards.

    Yes, I believe you have the non-NFC SIM. That's the same error message I received before I exchanged my old SIM for a new NFC SIM at my local Verizon store. My new SIM says "NFC" above the bar code on the plastic card that the SIM is punched out of.

    Installed. Activated fine. No free $10 card. Bummer.
    Only lets me put in an Amex or certain Chase cards. I have neither, so at this point it's useless to me.

    The three carriers blocking Google wallet are blocking it because they have a financial interest in ISIS. I have not used it because I feel it is downright immoral that they are blocking GW. They "claim" they can't be sure of the security in the NFC secure element built into the device, and but they can with the one on their issued SIM cards. It's a major farce on the part of the carriers to force you to use the system they have a vested interest in, instead of actually relying on competition. You are being force to use ISIS so they make money. I have no idea if it's better than or GW or not, because I'm not given the option of trying both. There is a group trying to force VZW to stop blocking GW due to their agreement not to block apps using the C block spectrum.
