    I'm surprised version bothered doing this. Heck, I didn't think it would even happen after we got Denim.

    What's even more surprising is that I didn't read this on the front page of windowscentral. Or maybe I just missed it.

    Doesn't Softcare require WP 8.1 to work? And I doubt VZW would release it for a device with a beta on it, perhaps Denim is close maybe for us?
    Once again, PFD is not beta. The OS version is the release version. The firmware/OS combination is currently unsupported, but the OS is really the release version of 8.1.

    Happily reporting that Verizon's Softcard works on the Icon. 8.1, of course.

    It's interesting, because I had to side load the app. I went to windowsphone.com and it says this app is not available for my phone. I downloaded it and installed it from local with the store app on my phone. I wonder if Verizon accidentally released it a leeetle too early. Of course the cats out of the bag and I doubt they could put it back in.

    And 8.1 is not a carrier sanctioned released on the Icon either. VZW was only releasing Softcard for devices that had 8.1 either already loaded (M8) or via the Lumia Update (Firmware/OS) not the PFD. I really doubt VZW or AT&T support devices running PFD.

    Which is what I said. The firmware/OS combination is unsupported. My point was that the OS version provided by PfD is not beta, as you originally stated.

    Verizon is trying to tell me that my Icon should already have a secure SIM. Got it last July. Thoughts?

    and I have to tie up money on a prepaid card.
    no you don't, you can set it up to take money from a funding source, kinda how PayPal works, so no leftover money sitting in your serve account. been using it like this for a bit now.

    I got my Icon right it was released and never had to swap sim, the Icon was supposed to be the launch phone for Softcard for WP on VZW, hence why it had the sim included.

    hmm, just tried to get this and it is telling me that it is NOT available for my phone and no option to download. Wonder if the release for the icon was accidental and they have since corrected it.

    Lumia Icon with dp installed.

    You need to download using the Store app on the phone. It won't be available on the website.

    My first try with it was a failed attempt. I went to McDs to try it out and holding the phone to the Softcard terminal for about 20 seconds produced nothing but the OS's thinking dots.

    After the McD employees just stared at me for the 20 seconds while I tried, the awkwardness got to me and I pulled out my credit card instead. Maybe I'll give it a try on a vending machine next.

    That happened to me a few times when I started using tap to pay with Google Wallet on Android 2 years ago. I quickly learned to get my credit card out ahead of time so I could quickly swipe it if tap to pay failed.

    That's part of the pain of breaking it in. Google Wallet tap to pay was hit or miss for me for a couple weeks, but since then it's worked fine. This was about 2 years ago, so I've gotten over the pain & embarrassment. You will too!

    This app is unavailable to me running stock 8.0. I checked Verizon's website, and it said my phone was compatible. To get it, I hit a link which texted me a link from Verizon. Here's the link it sent:

    go.vzw.com/googleSoftcard

    Unfortunately, it just redirects to the Verizon homepage. WTF?

    No they aren't charging me. They are making money from my money, and I have to tie up money on a prepaid card.
    No you don't. I have my debit card linked to the Serve card and my balance is always $0. Whenever I use the Softcard, the money gets taken from my debit card, as it should. I've yet to put a penny in the Serve card.
