Thank you for that info. Most of it I've already found on the web. But my question is, the unlock phone is for the global market....the world. So wouldn't it make sense a phone created to work anywhere in the world, work in the U.S. with Samsung Pay? I can understand if I installed the app in the U.S. then went overseas and it would stop working. But we are talking about it working on the phone period. I'm just trying to understand why Samsung decided to go about it this way. It doesn't make sense to me. Granted that I don't have all the inside info either. Thank you.

I seem to be in the situation as everyone else here. I purchased a Galaxy S7 edge unlocked. I didn't want to be tired to just one carrier. I got the phone to replace my Galaxy S4 Active. I really wanted to use Samsung Pay and that was the deciding factor for me to drop $600 for a new phone. I mean, the latest and greatest Samsung phone, a Samsung app, why wouldn't they work together. And for the price, it should work with every app Samsung puts out as of the release of the phone. But it doesn't and I'm not happy with Samsung. I have been a loyal Samsung customer before the flip phones were around. But after this unbelievable non-compatible miscalculation by Samsung, I may have to find another company to be loyal to and give my money. Is there any way around this (and still use Samsung Pay) other than getting a new phone?
