iPhone-less Isis Wallet Goes National

Isis Mobile Wallet, the mobile commerce venture formed by AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless, has gone national.

Isis allows you to pay with a swipe of your smartphone at participating merchants. Many Android phones are compatible, but the iPhone, for one, is not.

"Today’s nationwide launch of the Isis Mobile Wallet is a milestone for consumers, merchants and banks. It’s the start of a smarter way to pay," said Michael Abbott, chief executive officer, Isis. "Together, with our partners, we’ve built a seamless mobile commerce experience. We’re pleased to bring the magic and simplicity of the Isis Mobile Wallet to consumers across the U.S."

Isis uses near-field communication (NFC) technology, what’s become a common feature in many Android devices, but not Apple handsets. The app is available for download through the Google Play store.

The Isis Mobile Wallet went live earlier this year in select markets. The software update features a simplified user interface with a clean, white background and easy-to-navigate toolbars.

There are number of incentives to use the service, including free drinks from Coca-Cola vending machines, free smoothies at Jamba Juice and 20 percent back on purchases made using American Express Serve accounts.
