Yesterday, November 14, Isis, a mobile wallet solution, launched for Android smartphones and AT&T was ready for devices to use this service on their network. Using a secure SIM card, customers can make payments, receive special offers, and redeem loyalty cards at participating merchants.

AT&T indicated that this service is enabled on 19 different smartphones that support Near Field Communication (NFC) and are able to use Isis Mobile Wallet. You can check which phones are ready for Isis on AT&T's website. AT&T will also accept Isis payments in company owned stores. This means customers can pay for devices and accessories by simply tapping their phone on a point-of-sale terminal.

“AT&T is supporting Isis by ensuring our industry leading smartphones support the Isis Mobile Wallet, and enabling our stores to accept Isis payments,” said David Christopher, chief marketing officer, AT&T Mobility. “Isis has the right plan to significantly expand the mobile payments industry for our customers.

AT&T lists the following steps on their website to enable Isis on your Android smartphone:

How to Get Started With the Isis Mobile Wallet on an Android Smartphone:

  1. To use the Isis Mobile Wallet, AT&T customers will need a smartphone with Near Field Communications (NFC) technology.
  2. AT&T customers also need a secure element SIM card, which adds an extra layer of protection and stores payment information. The AT&T secure element SIM card has a grey mark in the lower right hand corner for easy identification.
  3. If the phone does not have a secure element SIM, customers can visit an AT&T retail location to swap out their SIM. A store representative can transfer the customer’s phone number and information to the new SIM card.
  4. Once the user has an Isis Ready phone with a secure element SIM, turn on NFC in the phone.
  5. Search “Isis Mobile Wallet” in the Google Play Store and download the free app.
  6. Launch the Wallet app and follow the step-by-step instructions to activate the Wallet:
  • Select Add a Card or the plus button.
  • Choose a credit card from the list of available cards in the Isis Mobile Wallet.
  • Visit the bank or card issuer website to complete the process.
  • The card appears in the Isis Mobile Wallet and is ready to pay.

If you are ready for this next step in payment processing and have a smartphone capable of delivering this service, stop by your local AT&T store to get started with this secure payment option.
