Some good Google Wallet news for you, provided you’re using a Sprint Galaxy S4, a Sprint HTC One, or the Galaxy Note 2 on Sprint or U.S. Cellular.
The extended availability of the service has been announced on the official Google Wallet Twitter account:

If you’re among the lucky users of the devices listed above, you will be able to use the service simply by downloading and installing the Wallet app.
A quick look at the replies to the tweet shows that users from other carriers would really like to be able to use Wallet. Google certainly wants to make the service available to more users, but carriers also need to like the idea.
Google Wallet (which was rumored to get its own physical card, a feature that was scrapped in the end) has been significantly updated, as the company announced at the I/O keynote. The app now lets you make one-click purchases from the phone and send money to friends even if they don’t have a Gmail account.
You can view a video showcasing the new features below.
