Apple Pay: Your Issuer Does Not Yet Offer Support for This Card

th

Well Apple Pay seems to be off to a great start. Not.. Most people are getting the above message because they have a credit card that is not yet supported. You would think Apple would of worked with more banks before they launched this technology.

When you get the message You can learn more about currently supported cards, or ask your issuer if they offer cards that support Apple Pay. You can currently add eligible Visa, MasterCard, and American Express credit and debit cards offered in the U.S. by

  • American Express
  • Bank of America
  • Capital One Bank
  • Chase (Visa Only)
  • Citi
  • Merrill Lynch (credit only)
  • U.S. Trust
  • Wells Fargo

The list will be updated as banks are added. Contact your card issuer to determine your card’s eligibility. Some banks may not support all card types.

First card I tried did not work. Hopefully US Bank will support Apple Pay very soon!

Tool to check if iPhone is Stolen

check activation lock

If you are thinking about purchasing a 2nd hand iPhone off Craigslist, eBay or somewhere else, be sure to use Apple’s new Activation Lock Status Tool. Before you purchase an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch from someone else, make sure that Find My iPhone Activation Lock is turned off. If it is on you will need to know the password before you can use the device.

With Apple’s new tool all you have to do is enter the IMEI or Serial Number and it will instantly tell you if it is locked or not. Most stolen items will be locked, but there is a possibility that the owner just forgot to turn off the lock, in that case make  sure they turn it off before you purchase it from them.

If you are looking for more ways to stay safe while shopping for a used iDevice, be sure to read this article: http://leimobile.com/iphone-5-scams-dont-be-a-victim/
