    Just read on another gadget website about being able to "pay" with a Samsung Galaxy S3 on all London buses!

    Can I use a Windows 8 Phone in the UK to pay for things yet? What is needed, a banks Wallet plug in?

    haha, that has sparked a bit of thought, eh? Someone else posted similar question: Wallet Credit Cards

    I do not think we can use it yet. I was looking for information myself...I can't put a CC into wallet that doesn't ear mark itself for "app purchases"

    You won't be able to use NFC for physical purchases until your carrier gives you a secure sim card. AFAIK Orange is the only carrier that offers this.
