    No, because that requires a secure SIM, from the carriers, and they just don't have the architecture in place for that. whenever the carriers support that, it should work in our current WP8 devices as is though.

    Hello,
    Thank you for quoting FidMe. There it is, FidMe is now available in the Windows Phone 8 Microsoft "Wallet"! And we have pictures :)

    You can transfer in the Microsoft Wallet your loyalty cards and also coupons, deals, gifts earned on FidMe.

    Yeah, I use FidMe also and it's pretty awesome. Use it to store all my loyalty cards and the barcode scanners have no problem reading my phone. It also integrates into Wallet, but I find it more convenient for me just to pin my most frequent cards to my home screen (from the FidMe app). Just tap on it and the bar code comes up. Quick and easy.

    What? I feel like some information got crossed. Just like with any of my cc or debit cards I still put in a zip or pin. Why would software gimp just the transfer of a card number through NFC? You mentioned a secure sim, are carriers nixing this?



    NFC payments will die soon if phones don't have it. Phones can have another pin too.

    No wonder I couldn't add it to my gf's 920. Wallet is useless (for us) then.

    This post is from a while ago, but since someone bumped it for another reason... basically a NFC payment system requires a secure element for credit card cryptographic information to be stored on. On Android phones with Google Wallet, that secure element is inside of the phone. Microsoft instead decided to have the secure element on the SIM card, probably because they don't have the clout of Google here, and the carriers prefer secure SIM because then they're a part of the payment process. In some ways though, the secure SIM makes more sense, because then switching your Wallet transactions from one device to another is just as easy as switching your SIM card.

    That being said, no carriers to my knowledge have gotten anything off the ground in this area yet. Secure SIMs exist, but there isn't anything to use it for. Microsoft promised that they would have something in place in the US in 2013, but there hasn't been any further news on this yet.

    And yes, I agree that Wallet is near useless even still.

    I had completely forgotten about this post; It's quite a coincidence it got bumped as in the past week or so, I've actually got some apps that integrate with the wallet.

    The first is the GAME Reward app which was updated very recently and now has wallet integration. There is also an app called Pass Wallet; which let's you add vouchers designed for Apple's Passbook to your wallet. Not sure how much use this will get as I don't think that Apple's Passbook has caught on that much either (at least not in the UK), but I'm keeping it just in case

    In addition to these apps, I also noticed that T-Mobile UK was added as a payment option to my wallet.
