AT&T Users Get Access to Google Wallet in the Marketplace, Some Success for T-Mobile Users

XDA forum members have noted that the AT&T Android Marketplace does, in fact, have the Google Wallet app available for download. Previously available only to Verizon users with NFC capable phones, the app is already in high demand. Now AT&T users with NFC capable phones (looking at the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket and Galaxy Nexus) can start using Google Wallet to make purchases.
An APK version of the Google Wallet app modified for any NFC capable phone is already available but installing it requires a rooted device. Additionally many users may prefer to have the Market version to ensure they have the latest updates installed. If you already sideloaded the APK to your device, be sure to uninstall it completely before downloading the version from the Market.
T-Mobile users can also attempt to install the app to their capable device. XDA Senior Member predation has confirmed  here that the install is possible via WiFi with an AT&T SIM Card in the device. Other users have reported success by using a workaround laid out here:
  1. Go to https://market.android.com/search?q=google+wallet on your NFC capable device.
  2. Open the page in the browser, not the Market. If the Market opens automatically you must reset your program defaults.
  3. Click the Google Wallet icon, but this time open it using the Market app.
  4. Tap install.

If you have a phone with an NFC chip and aren’t using Google Wallet, now’s your chance. Check out this thread for reports of working NFC payment locations.
