    So I just read about Apple's on phone pray system. It looks great. Where is this for WP? I thought we were suppose to have this feature in WP8.1? Maybe 10?

    Wallet app doesn't play through NFC does it? I know its suppose but I haven't heard of anybody actually doing it.

    Why ask for something that WP already has? Go to settings look for NFC and you'll see the "Tap to pay" set to Off, 'pay for things by tapping your phone to a participating store's NFC reader'. You must have a payment SIM for this to work.

    So again because APPLE says it's so doesn't mean it's so ok. Apple doesn't invent, they borrow/steal etc and then modify.

    You actually need more than just the Payment SIM to make this work. The Wallet app doesn't have the required logic to handle the payment processing on it's own and was decoupled in favor of allowing third parties handle the payment process. Softcard (formerly ISIS) is the only known compnay that is working to support NFC Tap-to-Pay for Windows Phone devices, but they have been saying that it's 'Coming Soon' for over a year. There are plenty of other posts in the forums about the ISIS/Softcard app and the NFC Tap-to-Pay requirements if you're looking for more info.

    But, as it stands now the Wallet app alone is NOT enough to use any of the NFC terminals, even with a secure SIM

    What are you taking about? Can you use wallet for payment? Most of us can't... That's the point. It's not just about having the app or even the secure SIM. Something is wrong which is why the vast majority of us can't use it. Smh

    Typically, Apple has released a 'wonderful feature' that will take years to become really useful (if ever), but everyone will jump on the bandwagon.

    I used Google Wallet on my Nexus 4 and thought it was great. Less is more....love to not carry my credit card. So there is currently nothing like this working on WP 8.1?

    Someone could easily make an app for it, but it's a bad idea to let your phone be payment. Someone steals it and you're done

    Not unless they have your fingerprint (Apple) or know your PIN code (Google). Both have security measures in place. I'm sure Microsoft will too when tap to pay is implemented.

    Wallet on WP 8.1 has a pin already to secure your info, just really lacks implementation.

    I don't really care if it has a pin or not. I just want it to work. Any word on if they are further developing it? I would think/hope so now that Apple Pay is getting all the attention.

    Is ISIS/Softcard available for WP?

    NFC payments are coming to the UK via Zapp which apparently has Wallet integration on Windows Phone and is supported by the major banks and retailers.

    Apple is making NFC payment sound unique to iPhone but as they push retailers to accept Apple Pay perhaps it will help push through a working relationship with retailers, Softcard and Windows Phone. I really want this feature. Next we need to have driver's license on phones.
