verizon don't you understand the Note 5 customers like me are the most into this Samsung Pay? Please send us the update. The note customer's are the tec. junkies that like the bleeding edge. SEND US THE UPDATE PLEASE samsungpay
Samsung Pay loaded all of the files today starting around 12:00. They did say that it was going live today for Verizon and now you should be able to get everything without side loading or tricks. I was able to load my BOA and Citi debit and credit cards with no issues. All that's left is to use it later today.
Verizon, please be ready in the future when new items and apps come available for all devices. This incident with Samsung Pay should have been handled more professionally and with better tact. We, as consumers, did not ask for the impossible, just for the company that we use to be more proactive and expedient.
Now, on a different note, thanks for finally supporting and releasing the app so that we could make our own decisions on what works best for us between Android Pay and Samsung Pay. There may be situations where one is more justified to use than the other but now we at least have that option.
If anyone has trouble finding the app, just login to your Google Play account on your computer and install it from there. It will appear on your phone a few seconds afterwards. Then launch the app and it should gather the necessary files from Samsung and Verizon to work. Enjoy everyone! It has been great to discuss and support each other for the benefit of Galaxy device users.
Unfortunately there are still groups of Verizon customers that have received the update from Verizon and still cannot download the update from the Play store. I am one of them. I have spoken to Samsung support the past 2 days and they said to give it 24 more hours. Any others still with this issue?
