htc evo 4g lte google wallet

Google Wallet isn’t ready yet for primetime on the HTC EVO 4G LTE. That much has been admitted by Google. But it’s not after owners of the phone had to find out the hard way. We could just picture that awkward moment when there’s a long line forming behind as you try to pay for a packet of gums, while the phone could only muster up an error message that says: “Google Wallet has not yet been certified in your country or on your device/carrier.”

It seems whatever software glitches that plagued Google Wallet app on the EVO 4G LTE has been fixed. Phandroid has received multiple reports from readers who said that they can run the app perfectly. Adding card information and using Google Wallet to buy things seem to be working properly now. They can also see their prepaid account balance on the app.

While there’s no official confirmation yet from Google and Sprint regarding the supposed software update roll out to fix the glitches, owners of the HTC EVO 4G LTE may want to check the Google Wallet app on their phones to see if the NFC payment function is back on.

As always, we’d appreciate it if you let our other readers know of the findings by commenting below. We’ll keep you posted once we hear more.

  • Not true. “Not supported. Unfortunately, Google Wallet has not yet been certified in your country or on your device / carrier”. I am more unhappy that I have never been able to get this to add a card successfully. I have called Sprint. I have called Citi. I have contacted Google Wallet. No help. No knowledge. No solution. And we were supposed to get the $10-50 bonus. Not happy. Not cool.

    Checked for updates, nothing… tried the app, nothing… Come on google, fix it already! There are plenty of documented users out there with rooted phones that can get this functioning 100%, so I’m having a hard time believing that this is a “software glitch”. I don’t care what google says, there’s something a little fishy about this situation.

  • I’m still getting the “not certified” error message. No updates available via Play.

    Brand new EVO 4G LTE came with Google Wallet and even before I could sign up received an app update, which I installed. So I decided to sign up and try it – and got the message, “Unfortunately, Google Wallet is not certified…for your device or carrier”. August 14, 2012.
