    Google Wallet on S3

    Hello,

    First time poster, long time lurker. I bought a S3 3 weeks ago, but when I tried to set up google wallet (you know since we have NFC on the S3) I got a message saying that my device and carrier were not supporting it. Does anyone know of any hack available for Cricket's S3 in order to use google wallet?

    Thanks for your help!

    I don't know why Cricket has blocked this feature is not like they have a competing payment system, so it makes no sense to restrict one of the features that put the GS3 ahead of its competitors.

    I know wikipedia is not the most reliable source, but according to wikipedia google wallet "Unofficially, it runs on all US variants of the Galaxy S III" it kind of makes sense since google wallet comes installed on the GS3 even on Cricket GS3.

    I would like to know as well. Google wallet is a nice feature to have, but for a flagship device not to be supported kind of sucks.

    Re: Google Wallet on S3

    Changed build.prop to that of a galaxy nexus.
    Reboot. Set up wallet. Change build.prop back. Profit.

    Mine works fine

    My s3 is flashed to cricket and Google wallet works fine. I use it at McDonald's all the time just to see the people's faces taking my order. It does say unsupported device when I first fire it up but works exactly as it should.

    I can't even star up the app, maybe you guys can use it on your Cricket GS3 because they are originally from other carriers. So if any developer or more experience Cricket GS3 user knows how to hack it or any other method to make it work please let me know

    Cricket doesn't support Google Wallet since they are trailing their own in a few markets. Its called Cricket Mobile Wallet.

    Re: Google Wallet on S3

    Y'all are rooted right? All you have to do is change your build,prop to make it think its a sprint s3. Set up wallet. And you're done. You can either go back or keep it like that
