Got as far as entering billing shipping info. I assume this is my UK info and that later on I set an address somewhere to the US Unlocked address? Wasn't exactly sure though! Thanks's all :blush:


After you've hade the purchase at BFPS, they send you a card number, a CVV number, an expiry date and a website URL. You go to the website, put in the card details, then enter your address for the AVS (the US address). So, for buying at BFPS, you can just use your real address.

Great! This is really cool, well done Paul! Giving us all free lunch ;)

I also believe Costa Coffee supports this, I've seen NFC terminals in their stores if that helps anyone...for example people who don't fancy a pie or a burger today ;D

I can confirm that the BFPS option worked a treat here. I've now got $33 on my phone. Cheers Paul. Much appreciated!!

Got the email with the link, it says use a VPN. Is it necessary? I'm too eager to use time to set one up!

No VPN required.

Great! An expensive way of topping up, but at least it works!

Apparently McDonalds works. Not tried Costa?

Yeah it's annoyed me that I haven't been able to top-up my 'wallet'. Now I can show this off to my friends and get my other friends who have GN/One-X to do this method as well :D

When adding funds it's failing, I've registered the address on the card with no problem.

Just tried at cafe nero which has a terminal which supports Mastercard, maestro and visa contactless, no joy with my Gnex.

It registered that my device was there but said that I needed to swipe or insert a card?

First time the guy had seen it tried with a phone though!

Still getting "unsupported device" though!

Adding funds on device? Check your card in the website, Google seemed to take a $1 'authorisation' on mine so I could only top up $24 (I assume if I was patient, the $1 would become available again).

Tried topping up $40 but it still fails

Within about 10 seconds of failing I do see the charge on my gift card of $40 from Google but then after 30 seconds more the charge is gone.

Just had an epic fail at the McDonalds drive thru, I'd clicked default card thinking it would make my card default but of course it did the opposite so I had no card and the transaction failed. Only realised this afterwards.

I'll try again another time ;-)

The women at the drive thru window said I can't use a phone to pay and said I should stop watching too much tv lol. Love it

Using a US address that matches that which you've configured for the card right? In the card management the address is showing up right?

Be careful you don't leave < $20 on your card, as minimum Wallet topup is $20.

Added to the first post:

WARNING

If you plan to wipe your device, switch ROM on your device or otherwise do anything unusual (including 'clearing data' on wallet), it is highly recommended that you use the 'reset wallet' option in the Wallet app settings. Failure to do this could render Wallet inoperable on your device!

Another note of caution, we're using a 'hack' here, so it's probably not the best idea to load up your Prepaid card with a ton of money in case Google blocks hacked wallets, something changes, etc. etc. and you could lose your money. Again, use at your own risk.
