Google Wallet Now Available For Sprint’s Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 2 and HTC One

Google Wallet

This morning, Google announced the availability of Google Wallet for new Android devices. The newly approved devices are Samsung’s Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 2, along with the HTC One on Sprint. US Cellular also got some love, as their Galaxy S4 is also now compatible with the mobile wallet service. 

If you own one of those devices on Sprint, you can pick up the Google Wallet app through Google Play, starting today.

Play Link

Via: Google+

    You say US Cellular’s GS4 is now supported, but it is not. I know because I own one, and I am ready to scream at the top of my lungs because for some reason I bought one of the most advanced phones available and can’t use a basic service like Google Wallet. Unlike most other people, I trust Google, especially over all the random 3rd party wallet app developers. NFC has got to be one of the coolest innovations in cell phones since the smartphone, and it pisses me off that I can’t use it.

  • so why when I run the app it tells me its not yet available on my device?!!

  • Stop complaining & just install the cracked version of wallet on your phone if you have it rooted. I kinda like the fact a lot of carriers banned wallet bc then when i use the wallet nfc service the employees of McDonald’s or whataburger freak out bc they’ve never seen someone make a credit card payment through a phone.

    But will Google Glass have Google Wallet? I want to slide my face across that greasy pad at Jack In The Box

  • jaffo

    Play store still says it’s incompatible with my Note 2.

  • Spider210

    Can someone port the HTC ONE wallet to the DNA PLESAE!

  • Patrick Lyddy

    Doesn’t work yet. Can download the app but still says that my phone isn’t supported..

  • Radgatt

    Its crazy that people always mention Verizon as the only carrier not to have Google wallet. If I’m not mistaken, at&t and tmobile also don’t have Google wallet. Shouldn’t the hate go around and not just Verizon? Or is it because Verizon is the largest us carrier?

  • CrappyAlloy

    Why the US Unlocked editions being unable to install this is beyond me.

    • Chris Mulkey

      Aye. I bought the unlocked One for my wife and was totally shocked to see that it couldn’t be installed directly from the Play Store. The only feedback I get is “This item is not compatible with your device.”

  • ToddAwesome

    I had this working on my totally stock/locked GNex back when the “workaround” first came out. Then one day, without taking an update or doing a reset, my Secure Element was toast. Thankfully Samsung fixed it under warranty, but, needless to say I haven’t tried it again.

    Google Wallet… proof Verizon cares more about protecting their interests than serving their customers.

    • FAL_Fan

      Completely correct, couldn’t agree more.

  • Geoff Johnson

    Why did I even bother looking on my Verizon Note 2?

  • Stevedub40

    The more I hear about stuff like this, I start to wonder why I’m still with Verizon. They have been crippling their phones since back in the old RAZR and KRZR days. Just F’in give us the damn phone and let us decide what to do with it. For G’ sakes, we pay enough for the damn service, the least they could do is give us some freedom with our phones.

    • Geoff Johnson

      I hate it, but unfortunetly they have the best service and the only LTE in my area so I don’t have much of a choice

    • I still have unlimited Data…otherwise I might switch. 🙁

      • Geoff Johnson

        On the plus side I wouldn’t feel bad about abusing my unlimited data 😉

        • Oh I don’t, and I have the Wallet app on there anyway. Root and Rom FTW

  • TheWenger

    Pshh, I’d rather have ISIS.

  • No Verizon? Shocking

  • Ian

    And Verizon can die in a Big Red Fire…

  • Mark

    Now why can’t the other carriers do this like verizon and att. This further proves its the cell phone providers and not the phone or network, I mean come on sprints network sucks and they can support google wallet.

    • gregmr

      Between this and releasing the first update to the HTC One in the US, even Sprint is starting to look better than VZW

    • Riz Virani

      You realize that Verizon is the one not allowing Wallet to work, right? Also, it’s not the service, it’s the carrier themself. People have a work-around for the GNex or Verizon to use Wallet because it’s primarily through your internet (I.E, WiFi) and the actual NFC Chip, unless I don’t understand NFC (and Wallet) at all.

      EDIT: Sorry, I mean it’s not dependent on the “strength” of the service if you can find yourself some WiFis.

      • PeteinPA

        totally correct – in addition is why – because they wish to make you use their own thing coming (or arrived, don’t remember) ISIS. Which stands for I Suck I Suck 🙂

    • snowblind64

      It’s not the network. Verizon and AT&T have their own mobile payment agenda (ie ISIS). They claim it’s a security issue in order to block a product that competes with their own mobile payment system.

      • gregmr

        I think they’re hoping that people who respond to those Nigerian prince emails with their Social Security number will buy that “security” pitch

        • FAL_Fan

          +1 that was great, caught myself laughing out loud on that one

      • michael arazan

        They Claim security issues to avoid the Fairness business act to keep them from being sued by holding it back. If google had access to their network which is classified because of proprietary codes, they could disprove it. As consumers we need to complain to the FCC about it on our behalf, believe it or not your voice matters even in government, enough people say the same thing they will notice and act
