Spent 30 mins being sent, by my satnav,the wrong way to a supermarket that didn't exist, then eventually finding one, only to realise that I had my phone and had forgotten my wallet at the hotel. I thought of this thread quite a bit on the way back to get my wallet.

This thread had me all excited, so I went in search of an NFC phone.

What a let down.

Unless I want to pay an exorbitant amount, or settle for some very average performance, nothing was to be found. Cheapest I could fine was a Huawei Sonic (I think that's the model), but no Flash and a 600mhz single core processer sent me running. Or pay $700+ for a phone bang full of features, but leaving me no money to put into my Google wallet.

Sad panda.

I picked up a Samsung Nexus S last week for $299 from DSE.

I find this concept quite interesting.

I also have a Galaxy Nexus... but not sure of the risks when it comes to rooting the phone.
Time to do some research I think!

Same here.

I wonder if it can do it too...

Not getting any love on a new SIII, all steps acomplished, it just refuses to install, even after spoofing T-Mobile I get

Not Supported

Unfortunately, Google Wallet has
not been certified in your
country or on your device / carrier


We shall fucking see about that.

Apparently it works with CM9 with a hacked Wallet apk from MoDaCo.

I now have it installed, but it doesn't want to function, I love a challenge.

Finally got around to trying to install this, but apparently SGSII sold in Aus does not support NFC so it just won't work.

For anyone with a better phone, this hacked version will sort you out.
