I didn't see a post anywhere about this,if so please remove.

I use Google Wallet all the time in conjunction with the Google MasterCard. I've had devices in the past that were able to use tap and pay (NFC) , with the need of root. My AT&T M8 is not rooted and tap and pay is working fine.

I'm sure this will be patched soon with a firmware update, being that AT&T is pushing ISIS and always blocked Google Wallet from being used.

Can anyone else confirm this or am I the only one ? Also, I tested a payment just now at McDonald's without any problems.

I think AT&T is dropping the exclusivity to Isis. When my GS4 updated to Kit Kat, Google tap to pay magically started working.

Yet Tap to pay has been stripped out of the AT&T and T-Mobile LG G2.
Grrrr

Same with the One M7, once updated to 4.4 I had an option to pick google wallet or isis.

That doesn't mean it's their doing. If it was their doing then other devices that were upgraded to 4.4.2 would have been removed but the likes of the M7, and Moto X were not. So there is no clear cut stating who took it out or not.

I just set it up. I don't use it that often but it is nice to have. I might actually use it later today. Thanks for reminding me about it.
