ITT: Razeus and all Apple users late to the convenience of new features, as per usual.

I love NFC payments too, use that feature several times a week, and have for well over a year. Why do you constantly let a company hold you back?

Faster to pull out my card and swipe though.

I've had an AMEX card that's been doing this for years and it didn't need to capture any part of my body or input a code to do it.

Like Curio said, look forward to when you can change the channel....

I am not giving you free points, friend.
It's completely legal in ohio to do so now too

I don't think they ever will honestly, IR is slow and laggy, there's about a billion different codes and protocols for different device makers and it doesn't really lend itself to a intuitive experience. I used the IR remote on my note3 like maybe 5 times as a joke because it was more hassle than it was worth.

Everything is wifi now and I would expect to see apple jump into the home automation game before ever even considering putting an IR LED in their devices. (which is all it really takes anyway lol)

I don't disagree, IR is lame. But that's not exactly the point I'm making here lol

yeah it only costs us 2.5-2.75% too, 4% is even more disincentive. Give me a check buddy.

How was I supposed to use NFC on my note? I couldn't find anything that would store my credit cards. I think you could link it up with google checkouts or something but I got stuck somewhere and didn't care much to continue.

Took me all of 5 seconds to get my card into my iphone though.

Good for you, what do you want a medal or something? Yeah your iPhone rocks and everything else sucks. Got it.

lol this is exactly why I love that there is a separate phone forum. Delusional fanboyism is so pathetic.... you'll defend it all to the end; for what, a company? ahaha

If it's not a points card then the merchant services fees are less, but anything with points is 2.5-3% and amex used to be like 4% which is why many small retailers don't accept them. They should really look at their merchant service provider though because we switched ours up and amex costs about the same as visa or mastercard now.

It's up to the retailer to decide any of this, some places won't charge anything or have no limit or whatever but we can't afford to give people extra deals so they can get some points.

Since Apple Pay isn't specific to mobile, was going to leave it be. But since this has turned into a show me yours contest, over to smartphone forum it goes.

If it's not a points card then the merchant services fees are less, but anything with points is 2.5-3% and amex used to be like 4% which is why many small retailers don't accept them. They should really look at their merchant service provider though because we switched ours up and amex costs about the same as visa or mastercard now.

It's up to the retailer to decide any of this, some places won't charge anything or have no limit or whatever but we can't afford to give people extra deals so they can get some points.
It wasn't a points card. Didn't know fees were different depending on if it was a rewards card or not.

To be honest I'm not surprised the Cadillac dealer let him since that group owns all the car dealers in that particular town except the Dodge and Ford dealer. The Nissan dealer I was surprised at, but I guess it was a slow day.

My next car is unlikely to be something VAG either. BRZ's still have me quite aroused.

I am not. If I have to wait until Apple gets right, then so be it.

But no matter how far Google was "ahead" in NFC payments, the fact is: Why do I never see anyone pulling out their phone to pay for something when I'm at any store?

You'll thank Apple later when your Google system becomes more useful when it's accepted at way more places.

The best part? Apple won't have any access to what I bought or how much I've paid, unlike Google's business model.

I'll thank no one but the merchants, don't give a damn about what Apple has done. Google has had it right for ages, you just didn't know. Now that you've done it you think Apple magically did something new. Bullshit. They haven't even done anything to make it better, you're just deluding yourself.

Used it today as well. It's nothing I haven't done with google wallet ages ago. That's the thing with Apple, since the 4s era they are just late to the party with everything. That's totally fine but I don't like how they act as if they came up with it first. The fact is NFC is crippled on the iphone, you cant even call it NFC as it does nothing but apple pay. You cant use it to hook up to nfc devices like speakers etc...

My daily driver right now is a 6+, while originally overly frustrating to use coming off my g3. Alarm volume being same as system volume for one example, among many other things. However, whatever ios does it does well even if it's a very limited range of things. However, my springboard is crashing 2 times a day or so. Also, I can say for sure the 1gb ram apple decided to stick to has completely taken away the lag free experience of IOS. My 6 plus fing lags at least 5 times a day, and it is unacceptable. For an os that is so simple and has crappy multitasking it's just bullshit.

Took me all of 5 seconds to get my card into my iphone though.
Google Wallet if you had 4.4.4, ISIS/Softcard if you don't. AT&T has an agreement with ISIS/Softcard don't they?

Delusional fanboyism? I have a macbook and an iphone, I have a PC I use more than the macbook and all my work is done on PCs. I had an android phone and liked it very much despite it using touchwiz and being locked down tighter than fort knox (pun intended, samsung.)

Because google did it first I am supposed to praise their implimentation of it? I'm not really praising apples either since I haven't even used it, all I said was that I couldn't figure out where or how to do it on my android and that with the iphone it took all of five seconds to get my card in and be ready to go.

There's no denying NFC is underutilized on android regardless of when they implimented it. Sometimes it's how you impliment something that matters. Google could have been pushing merchants for years to get ready and get on board and they could have made their side more streamlined and user friendly but they didn't. I'm not allowed to be on apples side though because what, they're apple so they're evil?

What's that you said about delusional fanboyism?
I always find it funny when someone throws around the "you're a fanboy" dig and it holds absolutely no water. It's even better when they are the one who's actually delusional.

It's the credit card companies that should have pushed it harder, they're the ones who made it a thing with those PayPass things so many years ago, yet they never pushed it hard enough to actually catch on.

I have no clue what ISIS/Softcard is, my phone had 4.4.2 and if google had this working flawlessly for years why did you need someone else before 4.4.4?
I think I got my card tied to google wallet but there wasn't a lick said about how to use it at a POS. I honestly couldn't find documentation anywhere about how to use the thing as a digital wallet and I gave up. I guess I didn't try hard enough to be edgy?

I would say a good 35% of retailers have a POS that accepts paypass. The problem was they really didnt force it in a lot of cards, the only one that ever had it was my amex and my best buy card, and my BB card they actually gave you a little RFID sticker thing you could put on your phone, had it stuck to the back of my iphone 3G and really liked to use it.
