So, you've heard a lot about this Google Wallet thing, but how does it actually work? How do you add a card? Is it secure?

Those may be a few of the questions floating around in your head about Google's pay-with-your-mobile service. Never fear, though, Wallet Wonderers - Google just published three new videos to help you better understand how Wallet works and how easy it is to use.

So, watch the videos and hit the widget at the bottom to install Wallet... if your device supports it, that is.

    If my device supports it? How about if it's available in my country? Sooner or later my standard response to all these features is basically going to devolve into "UK or GTFO"

    I would continue to use Wallet, except it force closes every time I try to add a credit card. Is there a fix for this? I'm trying to reload my prepaid card.

      Try to add it using a pc instead. :)

        I've looked into that. Doesn't seem to exist.

    I still don't see myself using it that much, since I always carry a real wallet anyway (after all, I do have to carry my ID and various other non-credit-card cards). I guess it would be nice to just store those cards I don't use much, though. But then I run into the problem that it will be easier to lose track of the card. If I don't see a card in my wallet, I know instantly that it's missing. If I lose my phone, my first thought is probably not going to be about an app that I rarely use that has access to credit cards that I rarely use.

    I don't understand why do we need another "middle man," instead of having the credit card companies coming with their own Android apps, like a Visa Android app for example. It is enough the credit card companies and my bank know a lot about people by what they buy using those cards. Why do we need to add another company, Google, to intrude in our lives?

      Well go to Iphone, stop complaining.

      Another middle man? U talking about credit card companies making Android apps when Google is behind Android.. the credit card companies would be the middle man!

    I wish they would stop with all the teasers if only Sprint can use it.

    And Great Britian! why when the tech is the same and a phone has NFC can it not just be used anywhere?!?!? If you root your phone (which exposes your credit card details to anyone walking down the street) i can use wallet in any country so why can google just allow it properly! Argh!
