Wednesday Poll: Galaxy Nexus Owners, Have You Used Google Wallet Yet?

After all of the drama that Google Wallet has gone through over the last couple of weeks (security issues and freezing of prepaid cards), we have yet to discuss usage of the app itself. With prepaid cards back for the most part and enough ways to get the app on your device even though Verizon is doing their best to prevent it, we want to know if anyone has actually used it.

Since carriers have asked Google to not include it on certain devices and with only MasterCard currently along for the ride, I’m personally having trouble finding places to use it at. Even at CES in Vegas, I had made it a goal of mine to use Wallet every single time I took a cab ride. Unfortunately, the only cab with PayPass functionality was the very last cab we took to the airport and the transaction failed enough times that we tossed cash out in frustration.

My first time happened to be last week as I stopped through a Peet’s Coffee here in Portland and noticed the PayPass pad. I fumbled through the transaction, expecting it to be more difficult. It wasn’t. I’m now hooked and am looking for ways and places to use it more often. NFC payments are simply put, brilliant.

Have you had the chance to use it?

    I can’t provision a Google Prepaid Card or a Citi card. I get the following message: Citi/Prepaid is unavailable due to planned system upgrades. Please try again soon.  Stock VZN Galaxy Nexus

  • Dave Kern

    I use it at Wawa at least once a week. I love blowing the minds of cashiers who haven’t seen it yet.

  • realfoxm

    That awkward moment when you’re standing there waiting for the payment confirmation sound.

  • Balls

    buying dutches with your phone = G

  • Bert336

    i noticed on my wallet app when i tried to re-add funds it’s asking to register with money network and wants me to put in my SS#. is this right? i dont remember seeing this in the beginning?  

  • I tried it at a local Wegmans and while my GNexus said it sent the payment the register denied it. Ended up paying with a card 🙁

  • spickle

    i wish Wallet let me use Visa.

    • dk81

      agreed. im not going to get a mastercard just to use it. if visa worked i would at least try it a couple times

      • Mossostdrauka

        I use my visa to prepay the google card. Works like a champ!!

        • yomotherandfather

          Ya but most paypass machines only support visa cards… I’ve never even noticed a mastercard paypass machine before. They’re all visa around here.

  • Tripod4

    Used it all the time (before the security issue disabled Wallet…) to pay for cabs in NYC.  Worked 4 outta 5 times I’d say.  Cabbies were generally confused but satisfied when they saw payment go thru on their terminal.

  • Simon

    I used it and it worked great but until it can be linked to “ALL” master card’s I don’t see it catching on… Who wants to have to load it up every time you want to use it.  Not to mention the statistics and billing detail you get from your CC company.  Link to all Master Card’s and I would use it move.

  • Bodhiballer

    I’ve used it 4-5 times, twice it worked great, the other times it was less successful.  

    My takeaway is that just one fail makes me not want to try anymore- if I have to dig into my pocket to pay with something I might as well just use my damn card and not risk looking like an idiot should GW fail to go through.  

    • dk81

      agreed. but 10-15 years from now your phone may be your wallet.  google ID anyone lol? 

  • xelandroid

    I have it with my free $10 and the $50 I placed in there. Only problem is now my $60 is trapped because it won’t work anywhere I try it. Circle K, CVS, and Walgreens. Any suggestions?

  • Timnorriswalton

    Used it at 7-11 and RadioShack. Easy and fast.

  • Dan Harrison

    I’ve only used it once, for the free $10. Since I am not with Citi back and thus don’t have a Citi card to use with it, there’s not too much point on always having to add funds to their prepaid card. Though when I used it at Best Buy (one of few places here that have PayPass, ironically, Meijer does too and here its right next door), the guy was confused as heck, and even clearly said “What did you just do?”, and I had to explain Google Wallet and NFC to him.

  • InvaderDJ

    Used it at a 7/11. Worked with no problems. Didn’t get any comments on it but I think the cashier was more concerned with the guy next to me arguing with what I think was a hooker.

  • When I use Google Wallet I feel like a Boss!

  • mmeiklejohn

    got the prepaid back and was green light good to go @mcdonalds, but it failed too many times so i threw the cash…

  • Anyone know where this works that ISN’T a McDonald’s?

  • Mike Johnson

    just got back from Manhattan and the card swipers everywhere have a Google Wallet sticker right on them, Duane Read, Macy’s, etc. works great and everytime I used it the cashier was wowed and said I was the first person to use it. Gnex on Verizon with sideloaded Wallet

  • feztheforeigner

    I would love to use it, but Verizon made it difficult and a lack of Visa support (my only cards) make it impossible to use this awesome technology…

    • Ben Taylor

      I’m on Verizon and only have Visa, and I use it quite often.  It has a ‘prepaid’ card option that you can load with any credit card in the app itself.  The app updates in Google Market and everything.

      • feztheforeigner

        I’m a little concerned with the prepaid option after all the problems they were having.

        It is my money after all…

  • DrAndyRoid

    If they didn’t freeze prepaid I would have definitely tried it.

  • It works pretty regular for me. The only problem is I don’t have many places to use it.

  • Evil-D

    I had to say no, but I plan to the next time I need to put gas in my car.

  • I use mine at walgreens and 7-11

  • Lakerzz

    I use it just about everyday. I didn’t try it during the “security issue”, but now use it all the time. The part I like the most is when I hand my phone to the person in drive through at Micky D’s, and tell them to just hold it over the pay pass thingy…the look on their face is priceless!!!

  • Jameson

    I’ve used it a few times at the USPTO cafeteria, it amazed one of the cashiers lol

  • I’ve used it several times. The only time it didn’t work for me was when I was trying to use the $10 Google gave to pay for something more expensive. Once I tried something under $10 it worked. I have since used it hooked it up to my creditcard and that has worked every time. I use it at the RiteAid next to where I work when I need something from there.

  • BostonFan87

    I’ve used my at Mass turnpike rest stops, Boston cabs, CVS’s and other various gas stations… Im pissed Google shut it down, I just threw 20 bucks on the prepaid card!

  • kylosma

    I’d honestly use it more but I go to college in the small town in the middle of nowhere and there are only like three places that I can use it; CVS, McDonalds and a gas station.

  • Ericbeck

    I have only been able to use it once at a cvs. The store machine readers always seem to broken.

  • I tried to use it at Best Buy, but they told me I needed to use the actual card. 😐

    • Tim242

      It worked fine for me at Best Buy.

  • LoganInTX

    I’ve successfully used it once but that was before I upgraded to the 2150mAh battery. I’ve tried 3 times since then (not at the original successful location) and it hasn’t worked. Every time the employee says that, “oh that thing doesn’t work, well wait, hang on, go ahead and try it, ahh yea, i didn’t think it worked”.
    So that leave me unsure! Does it or doesn’t it work with my new battery? What’s the point of NFC payments if there are NO WORKING NFC PAYMENT DEVICES!

    • Q

      2150mah battery?  That’s not the factory extended battery is it?  I have the factory extended battery and it’s 2100mah.  If you’re 2150mah battery isnt working, it’s probably because it’s not NFC enabled.

  • ABerry5

    Yes.. used my free $10 over 3 places… works amazing and really cool u can add notes and ur gps location.. ppl say they cant wait for apple to join to make it more mainstream.. but itsvpretty damn mainstrram now..

  • Nathan Roy

    I use levelup instead

  • I still cant get the prepaid card to work. 🙁

  • MikeCiggy

    Currently a college student with little to no credit but what i do have is good. Not really trying to apply for a card. Loved the prepaid card used it often. No more 🙁

  • Yes, I’ve used it.

  • Jim McClain

    if this phone worked as well as google wallet id be very happy,,, my god when are the updates coming

  • David Elisha

    I used at seven eleven like three times  and at foot locker for the discount……like a boss.

  • ddevito

    I used almost daily, running both stock (rooted) and then bugless beast, based on 4.0.3 – ran great.

    Then I decided to install the leaked 4.0.4 version, then things got wonky. My ‘More’ menu in Settings froze, the NFC chip becomes seized. I fell victim to the dreaded SECURE_ELEMENT error. 

    After digging around XDA and droidforums I realized that (although I did have a Titanium Backup), the app data in fact needs to be cleared before the app is backed up. If you don’t do that you won’t be able to use it ever again.

    I called Google today and told them the issue. They are aware of it but since it’s not supported by Verizon there’s nothing they can do – they gave me Money Network’s contact number so I called them. I asked them for a master reset of my account (based on the TSM#), they said they would look into it and get back to me.

    They called me back later today and told me that unfortunately they cannot do a master reset until the Google Wallet is updated. I asked (WTF?) about the update and they said Google is developing an updated version – based on the prepaid provisioning issues, and once it’s released they can perform a master clear/reset of my account on their servers.

    SO LISTEN UP, if you use GWallet and want to install a custom ROM, do the following:

    1. Open Google Wallet
    2. Hit Menu (or the Wallet logo in the upper left corner)
    3. Go to Settings
    4. Choose ‘Reset Google Wallet’.
    5. Then perform a Titanium Backup
    6. Install your ROM
    7. Restore the Titanium Backup

    • fvqu

      Hey I have the same exact issue here man, if it wasn’t for this I probably probably would have spent that 10$ credit by now. You don’t know how pissed I was when it started to do this.

    • Kr00

      I thought android was fool proof? I guess it never met a fool as big you.

      Just sayin…….

      • ceejw

        Where have you ever heard that Android is fool proof? 

      • Busoni19

        How exactly was he a fool? He installed the newest version of the OS. That’s it. It’s not like there is a big warning within Google Wallet (or even on this site) that says, “If you don’t go into the app and reset it BEFORE installing a new version of the OS you’ll be permanently screwed”. Honestly, I think this speaks more poorly of Google that they don’t have a way of fixing this without swapping out hardware (and sticking someone else with a crippled phone down the road), and of DL for not noting this clearly in every one of the HEY LOOKY HERE! THIS IS HOW YOU CAN GET GOOGLE WALLET ON YOUR NEXUS posts.

    • yomotherandfather

      thank you man… appreciate it

  • Jim McClain

    I like that after you transfer some money from you bank debit card, it sends you an email confirming it all, and no fees charged,,,, nice

  • David Hussey

    I also followed the instructions and used Titanium backup to establish the market link, so it stays up to date.  Take that, VZW!

  • Q

    Use it all the time at McDonalds.

  • i was actually starting to use it more.  then i switched from gummy to aokp and now i keep getting the “prepaid cards not available” message.

    • ddevito

      Updated version coming in the next couple of weeks will bring the prepaid card provisioning back.

  • Tim242

    Only fixed provisioning of new cards. If you remove the card, you can’t re-add it yet. I thought it was fixed for all, so I updated AOKP. Now, prepaid is unavailable. Google says about 2 more weeks to fix that.

  • i just wish i could add my citi debit card to it. or link it to my google check out. 
    i’m not applying for a new credit card or starting a prepayed one just to use wallet.. 
    seems like theres too many inconveniences for something that should have been pretty simple. 

    • Jim McClain

      you can add money directly from your debit card

    • Jim McClain

      just click on add funds, type in your debit card number and info and amount and its done

  • Towelie420

    I have only been able to use it on the vending machine at work. Seems like when it does not work its not the fault of the phone, but the fault of the terminal you’re trying to use it on

  • Djlowproz

    I have it installed just havent set it up yet.

  • Tim242

    I used it a lot. I’d love for Google to enable prepaid cards again so I can use it again!

    • Jim McClain

      if you have a bank card,you can load money that way quick

      • Tim242

        I never had an issue loading money to the card. The issue is that Google has not allowed provisioning of previous cards since the issues. They are allowing new cards, but not reprovisioning of previous cards. I updated AOKP, thinking Google had re-enabled all prepaid cards.

        • Jim McClain

          so are you saying,that even after i just loaded it,that it wont work?

          • Tim242

            If you just added a new card, it will work. If you had a card previously that you are re-adding, it will not provision. It will say, “Prepaid unavailable.”

          • Jim McClain

            well mine just took the money, its showing the new balance so I guess its working

          • Jim McClain

            I installed this app back in January,used it on Jan.25, not touched it again till a few minutes ago

          • Tim242

            You’ll be fine as long as you don’t remove the card. I only removed mine to update my ROM. Reprovisioning is still blocked.

  • tjmonkey15

    Twice at McDs, both times for mocha frappes (so good).  As EC8CH said, I felt like a moron when I tried it the first time and it didn’t work….

  • Ceber

    I use it fairly regularly as I shop at whole foods, and they take it.  I hope they add other credit cards to it soon

  • sstang2006

    I use it more than 3 times a week 

  • Guest

    Yes. When I went on vacation last month, many of the places I went to had Mastercard paypass POSes. Typical exchange: “Oh sir, that’s for your cred…” “OH, COOL!”.

  • Jim McClain

    I just loaded some money on mine from my debit card, it updated ok

  • Evolvd

    I tried at a Jack in the Box, said “Sent” in the transactions both times I tried it. Cashier said it didn’t work and “sir you need to swipe a card”. So he either didn’t know how to do it, or something didn’t work right. I ended up feeling like an ass for holding up the drive through and haven’t tried since.

    • Tim242

      Did you restore it from backup? That will screw it up. Luckily, clearing data and re-installing corrects that issue. But, you won’t be able to re-add your card until Google allows it again. They said about 2 weeks.

      • ddevito

        Clearing data and re-installing doesn’t work for everyone. I tried it at least 15 times. If you don’t clear the app data before the backup then restore it and attempt to clear the data after the restore, the app locks up. 

        Mine is always stuck at ‘initializing device’ – I click the wallet logo, go to settings, then try the reset there, but the app locks up completely and needs to be forced closed.

        • Tim242

          There is no reason to clear app data on a fresh install of the app. That is your issue. Just uninstall, then reinstall the app. Works every time.

          • ddevito

            Nope, tried that. The issue is that there is a unique NFC ID that your chip uses when it registers on Money Network’s servers. So you need to clear THEIR data by doing a reset of Google Wallet (in the app, not settings in ICS). That clears this unique ID on their side.

            Trust me, I’ve been wrestling with this for the last 10 days, and not winning. 

  • Marcus Reid

    I would love to use Google Wallet.  Almost used it at Macy’s so in the future yes I will use it.  Needs more card support though and I’m sure Google knows this already.

    • ddevito

      Forget card support they need more carrier support

  • Smeckle

    Is there still a danger of getting locked out of the secure element? I remember seeing that that was a problem before with people running ROMs and losing all Wallet functionality on their phones because the secure element saw them as a fraudulent user or whatever after they activated multiple times across different ROMs (or builds?). I’ve been afraid to activate it because of that. Is this still a concern or did it get worked out?

    • fsfadfasdfa

      Read ddevitos posts =)

  • lamenting

    Just got it up and running and got it to recognize my MasterCard.. so we’ll see.

  • After tricking the phone into downloading it, I can say that I’m a fan. I don’t use it as much as I’d like but I’m a fan.

  • Have I opened the application? YES.
    Have I used the app? NO.

    Why? Because I have a Visa. 

    One of the reasons I was most excited to upgrade to my Galaxy Nexus LTE was that I would be able to ditch my credit cards. I’m still waiting for Visa support to come to the app. Anyone know more than I do on when that will happen?

    • GawkerRedesignSucks

      I think PayPass is a Mastercard thing.  That might be part of the problem.

      • EC8CH

        and not all mastercards work… it only works with Citi mastercards.

        • Marcus Reid

          yea just found that out too lol

      • snowblind64

        The NFC pad at the 7-11 near me accepts Mastercard, Visa, and American Express.  Google just needs to get more card vendors on board.

        • Stephen

          I think it has already been announced that Amex and Visa have agreed to work with Google.  Just no official release yet.  I read rumor that Visa would do it for the Olympics.

    • Smeckle

      seconded

    • MikeCiggy

      I believe Verizon us developing there own nfc payment application. Hence why they are blocking googles. Not sure if this is fact. id assume there system includes other card types.

  • zapote21

    I use mine almost every day

  • I spent my free $10, but haven’t loaded anything else. While its a great concept and I would like to use it more, its currently too limited.

  • Pdiddy187

    Got a free a six pack at 7-11 with it. Haven’t used it since.

  • Dawn

    I have the $10 on there that it gave me when I signed up… But, I have never seen anyone else use their phone to pay. I don’t want people to laugh at me haha

  • Jim McClain

    works fine,

  • GawkerRedesignSucks

    I activated it and got my $10 prepaid credit, but I haven’t used it yet.

  • Colin Zack

    Is there any good way of knowing where I could use it? What will the item that’ll allow me to use it look like?

    • Michael Martin

       there is a mastercard paypass app which might help you out 🙂

      • Inbred Republican

         Sadly that info is so old and unless you know the area possibly useless.  It shows a drug store in my town that moved 3 years ago.

    • 1977sjr

      Download the PayPass app

    • lamenting

      their website is a good start.. http://www.google.com/wallet/where-it-works.html

    • ddevito

      Download PayPass Locator. You can use it anywhere that accepts PayPass.

  • MrSteve920

    Haven’t used it yet, but I’m considering trying it out in the future.

  • everyone saying that their pre-paid is frozen, they unfroze it a couple days ago

    • ilovetechnology

      Nope, if you’ve installed a ROM or reinstalled Wallet then you’re still out of luck for prepaid cards still. Last I heard they should have that service back up and running in a few weeks…

      • Stephen

        I swear mine went “offline” last week but has since been made available…I’m almost positive that Google has fixed the problem.

        • Tim242

          Only fixed provisioning of new cards. If you remove the card, you can’t re-add it yet. I thought it was fixed for all, so I updated AOKP. Now, prepaid is unavailable. Google says about 2 more weeks to fix that.

      • i used it on Feb 16th. Had it installed since the .apk was released for non-rooted.

  • Mlarson6

    Works fine at Rite Aid every time I work :). Haha love impressing people with it

  • Clifford

    The first time I used it was at college with a vending machine. I actually charged myself multiple times because I was so excited to use Google Wallet. It turned out that after I touched the device to the machine I just had to pick what I wanted. But I didn’t wait for the machine to process the transaction, so I kept touching/paying until until I noticed what I was doing. But after some practice, I feel like a pro. Unfortunately the only places I can use GW is at McDonald’s and college.

  • I used it at Champs the other day for the first time, and it was pretty awesome. I was gonna use it and started to stop, and the girl at the register begged me to use it because she’d never seen it done before, and it worked. pretty cool.

  • I did but now i cant use my prepaid card anymore it just says it is unavailable and i cant even remove it anymore

    • Stephen

      Google disabled it a little bit ago bc of a workaround that was discovered.  They have since patched it though, so i dunno why it’d still say unavailable.  Good luck

      • Tim242

  • I tried to use it, but the pass reader was broken. It’s a good idea, but not really very well thought out.

  • Crazydog

    Yes! But I’m still waiting for them to let me re-activate my prepaid card since the whole pin stealing debacle. Rawr!

  • DanSke

    Yes, as a matter of fact I have. I used Google Wallet to buy a Wallet. It was so literal the cash machine exploded and sprinkled down glitter on all the customers and clerk. I think I saw a Unicorn in there somewhere too…

    • 1bad69z28

       I am wondering if Walmart has PayPass, they’re normally on everything that takes your money lol

      • Baker1015 Sb

        Our walmart does not.  Meijer here does.

  • Yes, and it was magical.

  • Baker1015 Sb

    Ive used it several times and I love it.  cant wait till apple uses this so it will be more main stream.  UGH did I just really say that?

    • Jeff

       Yea, but then Apple will get a patent on it, claim Google swiped the idea from them and sue them….

  • Jeff

    Sorry,

    I simply do not trust the security of linking my phone to my banking accounts…..

    • rocketdaddy

      The link between your phone and the prepaid card in google wallet is lots safer than the link between your bank and a hunk of plastic in your wallet.  I had the same reservations until I really thought about it and looked at the security measures in place.  Just make sure you have lock screen security in place.  That’s just one small part of the security though.

    • Q

      Why not?  Uses a credit card is much more insecure.  Everytime you pull a credit card out, everything about it is right out in the open.  All someone has to do is take a picture of you card number and CVC code and go to town..  At least with Google wallet, the card info is out in the public during the transaction.

  • EC8CH

    When it works people think you’re awesome.

    When it doesn’t people think you’re an idiot.

    • snowblind64

      So true. The first time I tried Wallet was at a Rite Aid and it detected the reader (turns out that one was broken) but would not work. The person at the checkout was pretty old and he accused me of trying to hack their system. Pretty funny but embarrassing, I ended up paying cash.

      I have used Wallet about a dozen times since then and it works great. People think it’s really cool. I may have even got one of the 7-11 clerks to switch from Apple to Android. Just make sure the card reader is enabled. Also get the app Paypass Locator which is a great tool for finding places to use Wallet.

      • 3M4NU31

        Would you mind explaining the part about the card reader?

        • snowblind64

          I meant the pad that reads signal from the NFC chip in some credit cards and phones. The one I tried to use at Rite-Aid was out of order (it had paper taped over it) but I didn’t know that until after I had tried it.

          • Loki

            Is their a list of companies that Google has that offer Pay-pass? 
            I tried to Google business’ that accept Google wallet and/ or have pay-pass in Google forums and can’t find a list of business in states. I tried googling St.Louis business with pay-pass and nothing.
            I would like a list, maybe on the app or G maps or somewhere, telling me who accepts and who doesn’t.
            Walgreen’s by my house has Pay-pass but they never turned on the machines because they say no one ever used it.

          • EC8CH

            This is exactly what you are looking for.  Google Wallet will work anywhere MasterCard Paypass is accepted:

            https://market.android.com/details?id=com.mastercard.paypass&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwyLDEsImNvbS5tYXN0ZXJjYXJkLnBheXBhc3MiXQ..

          • You can also go to the Google Wallet site and hit “Where It Works,” enter your zip code, and get a list of places on a map that accept it.

    • Andrewshifflette

       its so damn true… the clerk at 7-11 wanted to reach over the counter and strangle me because it kept failing…

    • Daniel Simpson

      It’s worked every time for me.

    • JonnyRock

      The clerk @ 7-11 was really confused. She asked to see my credit card. I had used the google prepaid card so there was no card to show her. I tried explaining how the thing worked but she was very suspicious. Ended up writing down what happened to ‘check with her manager later’ lol! Apparently I was the first one to use the paypass in that 7-11.

  • Jason Purp

    I was gonna try to use it on the vending machines in the mall today to get my friends some free drinks and I found out that the prepaid cards were frozen. I was mad.

    Wallet is great.  Like you, I’m looking for more places to use it.  McDonald’s and 7-Eleven are getting old.

    • ticker47

      I bought something at Petco with it.  The person behind the counter just looked at me and said “I bet you think you’re cool don’t you…Well…actually I think that is pretty cool”

      Mcdonalds is so bad for you.

      • Q

        Coffee and Oatmeal isnt bad for breakfast.

        • Might as well have coffee and a snickers bar. Same calories. Less McDonalds visits.

  • John

    Really? Wow..that apply for everyone?

  • Bad time to ask this question. Currently in rage against Google for shutting down Prepaid. I rather have a working Google Wallet than none at all.

    • sc0rch3d

      prepaid is working…that’s the only way i can even use it. i reloaded it after they brought it back up a few days ago.

        I still can’t re-active my prepaid card. I read that only NEW cards can be provisioned at the moment – those who had them before they were disabled, like me, are still waiting.

        • rocketdaddy

          I just added $20 to my prepaid card and I’ve had it for weeks.  Are you saying that, even though I’ve added the funds I won’t be able to make purchases with it?  Guess I’ll go try it and see if there’s a Big Mac in my future.

          • Crazydog

            When the security exploit up, Google disabled provisioning of all cards. Last week, they said it was fixed, and card provisioning was a go, but I was unable to re-provision my card. Based on people’s communication with Google, only new cards are able to be provisioned. 

            Not sure why yours wasn’t un-provisioned, or why you were able to re-provision it, but maybe *I* should contact Google.

            I put this on my gnex quite a while ago, used it, and a few minutes ago,loaded more money on it from my bank account

          • Lakerzz

            Same here without any issues, and used it too.

  • careydw

    I walked into a 7/11 specifically because I knew they had paypass and wanted to give wallet a whirl … though I’ve only used the $10 that Google gave me to try it out

  • John

    Not yet, since it’s not available in Nashville, but I’m going to chicago in 2 weeks so I will be able to try it out then. Can’t wait!

    • Tim242

      Dude, it is everywhere in Nashville. Download the PayPass Locator app.

      • John

        Whoa..I stand corrected. Thx

  • Kaizen_2012

    Yup, and Google gave me $10 for registering

    • lamenting

      I registered before the whole security issue – and now it says my prepaid card is unavailable.

      • same here.. 

      • Tromanojr

        Me Too. wish I would have spent the ten dollars.

  • sc0rch3d

    i was in a very crowded McD’s just getting a drink and used Wallet. At least 5 people had that WTF look. The manager stopped and asked me about my phone to which his reply…

    “oh, so that’s what that thing above the keypad is for” – LOL

    • I just laughed. 

    • 1bad69z28

       I am hoping places like Safeway and Walgreen’s jumps on board. Oh and the gas station LMAO!!!!!

      • GawkerRedesignSucks

        Use CVS and BP.  Pretty sure they take it.

        • 1bad69z28

          Yeah, we do have a CVS too around the corner lol thanks will try that out this evening 🙂 BP huh, will give that a shot as well normally I stop at my local cheap gas station lol

          • W/ever

            Huh, BP?  Sure lets give them business just because they accept your phone?  Somewhere a dolphin is weeping. lol

          • EC8CH

            so tru… a responsible customer would take their business to a competing oil companies gas station who is equally guilty of environmental pollution.

          • 1bad69z28

            @W/ever, Yep, that’s why I love my Dolphin skinned wet suit and my Dolphin skinned shoes!!! Go Big Oil, Just Drill Baby, Drill LOL!!!!!!!

      • Lakerzz

        The Walgreen’s in my area has it, as well as many other places.  (I’m in Quartz Hill, Ca.) 

        • 1bad69z28

          Cool I am in the San Francisco Bay Area will try both CVS and Walgreens 🙂

      • Walgreens and 7-11 around me use it
