Re: FLASH SALE: Get your second month FREE when you activate

@totalUser That's the only problem with my phone. Its not dual SIM. I bought a top of the line Galaxy s10 and it dosent even come with Dual SIM. That's the only thing i hate about my phone.

 

Fido data only plans are hard to get without being a customer. Freedom is not in my area and Fongo is a good consideration. 1GB takes me to the end of the month but I really try to restrict my data usage. If I didn't it would last half a month.

When you bought your phone you should have searched out a retailer (usually a small business) that sell international versions of your phone. It would then come a dual sim. Unfortunately most north american versions only feature single sim/+usb in their selection. In vancouver i can recommend a local small business that offers international models on a select few samsung phones. My samsung galaxy A3 is the UAE version.

@darlicious I believe the international version of my phone supports dual SIM. Its kinda annoying how Samsung varies by region. Also buying an international Samsung phone vs North American is different. They got different processors and Samsung pay won't work in North America. Also warranty is non existent.

I agree with the hassle of the variations.

But Google Pay is just as good as Samsung Pay.

I configured Tasker to turn on NFC when Google Pay is launched. The gesture/keystrokes are fewer than with Samsung Pay.

@z10user4 Yeah but Samsung pay dosen't just use NFC... 

 

Samsung Pay uses MST. It is some sort of technology that can work at any payment terminal that has a swipe card feature. The payment terminal dosent even have to support NFC. I believe this is on the Galaxy s7 and up.

I have an S7. I would get a bit excited to find a retailer that didn't do contactless (although in this day and age...) and try it out. I have yet to find a terminal that worked. I suppose there's a remote possibility that the clear plastic case I have on the back might interfere but I doubt it.

Have you had any luck?

@BearFBI 

      Not that ive needed my warranty and even my extended warranty is probably already done with or has less than six months left on it.....for the price you pay for a samsung phone you shouldnt have any warranty issues.

     I dont pay anything with my phone but the samsung pay app that came with my phone sure woukd like me to use it. What issues are you referring to in that regard?

I would test out my samsung pay for you if i wasnt so paranoid about having anything financial tied to my phone.

Did the cat get neutered?

But you have Koho. I use Samsung Pay and Google Pay with my Koho. What I like about it is that the only loss would be what's on the card.

Re: FLASH SALE: Get your second month FREE when you activate

@darlicious Well my warranty is already up. It finished about a 2 weeks ago. 

 

The problem with Samsung Pay is that it won't work in Canada because its an international model. You wouldn't be able to link a card and use it to pay. Its weird.

 

@z10user4 I use MST pretty often. It works all the time. You just have to position the phone to the swipe card reader and it works instantly. Its really cool. The cashiers get so confused because their terminal dosent accept NFC

 

Apparently MST is more secure than paying with an actual card. It uses Magnetic waves to trick the card reader that it senses an actual card.

It stands for Magnetic Secure Transaction.
