Let me know if your MC ca be associated with the system. I would be surprised if it's able to be.

 

As for the Google Prepaid Card, you don't have anything to lose...Google gives you $10 to start out on it!

 

I loaded up another $20 on the card today; I can figure out how to spend that in the next few months, and using NFC to make payments is fun :)

Remember, always reset Google wallet from inside the app to avoid bricking your secured portion of the NFC chip if you're going to factory reset or flash a new Rom. Clearing data from Titanium Backup or Settings WILL NOT prevent bricking. Only from within the app. If you never set up Wallet, you don't have to worry.

I used mine for the first time today at CVS. The cashier was looking at me very funny LOL. Transaction went thru but did tell me unspported device because I am rooted.

Don't worry about that message. I know the folks on the EVO forums pulled that message and fixed the wallet so it works again.

Hmm, since GWallet still works when the phone is rooted (despite the fact that it's "not supported"), it makes me that much more likely to pop a new ROM onto my device. Though that probably won't happen until after I get back from LTE-land (DFW, followed by the San Antonio market).

Just got GS3 today and Google Wallet won't open. Says its not supported. :angry: Updated and forced closed and still won't work.

 

UPDATE: Chatted with Sprint online CS, and they "refreshed" the device. And now it works fine! :tu:

      It appears network Vision is ACTUALLY progressing in NYC. I just got great speeds from a tower where I normally get 600-800kbps. I can see the panels from my window, but I never noticed anyone changing them and I can't remember if there are any new ones. Do any of these look like NV? I think the two big huge ones (lower) might be new. This is at the corner of 70th and York Avenue, a tower that was supposed to go live this month.

      I've heard around these forums that LTE will not drain a phone's battery any more than 3g on newer phones.  I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 though and that seems not accurate in my case to the point where I almost dread LTE showing up because I'll be having to go on airplane mode within a couple hours.
       
      Even when I go to a place with strong Sprint LTE signal with high data rates (e.g.; 20 mbps), my phone will only last a few hours at most before I am in the yellow.  If I am on 3g though with that kind of signal and general use, I can generally last a day without charging.  
       
      Is the Samsung Galaxy S3 just not good at LTE battery life or is LTE simply a battery hog?  I am hoping it is the former since I'm going to be upgrading soon.

      I have a unique problem. Sprint is going to replace my phone because the screen went out. Touch screen still works, just the back-light or whatever won't illuminate the screen, but I have a custom ROM on the phone with a custom recovery.
       
      I need to reset my phone because of my personal information mainly, but I'm also concerned that they are going to charge me a ton of money if they find out my phone was running a custom ROM.
       
      1. I'm going to reset my ROM and firmware via KIES, seems to be the easiest way since the screen won't turn on.
       
      2. does KIES reset the binary counter or will it just add another download on to the counter?
       
      Either way I have to do this, I'm just looking for a few answers. Ideally my hope is they just scrap the phone and use it for parts, but I don't think that's going to be the case.

      Sprint has begun offering the Samsung Galaxy S3 in an exclusive Amethyst Purple color option.

      The issue appears to be related to the NAND becoming corrupted and killing off the Galaxy S III’s mainboard, which causes the phone to essentially “brick” itself.
