Isis Mobile wallet gets updated to show more deals
The Isis Mobile Wallet is a free app at the Google Play Store. The mobile payment service is a partnership between AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon. For your Android phone to support Isis, it must have NFC and a special SIM card that keeps your personal payment information secure. And you need to have credit card account information from a participating issuer loaded into the virtual wallet so that you can tap and pay at stores that accept Isis.
If you own an Apple iPhone, you can uses Isis thanks to the special Isis ready cases available, that are embedded with NFC connectivity.

Heck, when I got it I got only $25 :-\
Anyway, there is another promotion going on with Isis, which can save users a few bucks a week. xD

I would use Isis, but it's still too limited as you can only add certain and very few cards to it. None of which I use or own, thats why I use Google Wallet which works with what I have. I would like Isis to succeed but like always, a carrier created app is held back by its creators.

The problem with ISIS (and probably for Google Wallet too, but idk for sure) is that there are so many locations with broken mobile payment machines. They just don't work!!!
There was that one Mc Donald where I tried to scan over 10 times and it still didn't work. (It was good that there were nobody else in line, lol). Then there was a CVS I usually went to that had one machine working perfectly (it process every time I scan) and the other one that just doesn't work at all. I told the employee that machine didn't work, the other one worked, and she was like: "They are the same machine, so they should work the same."
I was thinking wtf, I was trying to tell you this one failed to work correctly. xD
