Merchants can also use Isis to offer discounts and loyalty perks in new creative ways, which means you can easily save more when shopping at your favorite stores.
Starting today, T-Mobile customers in Austin and Salt Lake City can get an Isis NFC SIM card for their smartphone at no charge in T-Mobile retail stores. They can then download the Isis Mobile Wallet from Google Play1 and begin moving their money onto their mobiles.
At launch, T-Mobile will support the Isis Mobile Wallet on three of our innovative smartphones: the Samsung Galaxy S® III, Galaxy S® Relay™ 4G and Samsung Galaxy S® II. By the end of 2012, the HTC® Amaze™ 4G and Samsung Galaxy Note II will also support Isis Mobile Wallet, and we look forward to including the capability in even more handsets in 2013.
