Google Wallet is Down, Pre-Paid and Citi Cards Unavailable at the Moment (Updated)

Update:  It’s back up and running!

We were getting many reports from Twitter this morning that Google Wallet was down. Pre-paid and Citi cards seem unavailable at the moment for a large group of people so you don’t need to worry that it’s just you and you can rest easy knowing that there is nothing wrong with your secure element. One reader called tech support to see what was up and all he got was a confirmation that the app was indeed down, no word on why. He was also not given a time frame to expect it to be back up by, so when we hear any different we will let you know.

Cheers Christian!

  • i actually had to reach into my backpack and get my wallet at 7-11 yesterday because of this. oh, the inconvenience of life.

  • Got enough menu buttons there eric?

    Google Wallet seems to have acknowledged the issue on twitter and it’s now working for me again.

    Mine was not able to connect to bank or prepaid since last night. Just tried again and it finally was able to contact the Money Network and updated my card with the correct balance.

    I love how people kept preaching how this app and it’s functionality will be the end all beat all to purchases….. now look at it …. up and down like a yo yo.

    Have fun with your “totally awesome” app.

    I’m getting concerned with all the problems Google Wallet has been experiencing. It’s the product I want to love, but they’re making it very difficult…

  • hmm my wallet works fine… 4g Minnesota area..
