Your issue sounds a little different than the one in the articles (different error message), but if your device was already freezing that's another reason for an RMA.

I've seen a couple posts about uninstalling Wallet with Titanium Backup (on a rooted device) and then reinstalling from the Play Store to get it working. Others simply had to reboot a few times. For some people, neither method seems to work. I'd just RMA it if possible since it's a brand new device.

That's weird about the factory reset locking people out of Wallet. If that's really a "feature" then there should be some kind of warning. Performing a reset isn't exactly an uncommon task.

Edit: Somehow I missed The Teej's post. Good to hear - that factory reset issue seemed odd and unlikely. And thanks for the heads-up about the low storage issue. I'm considering getting a N7 soon.

Have you tried factory reset again, and reinstalling Google Wallet?

guess that a good enough reason to uninstall the app. i use a mvno on my skyrocket and their sim does not support NFC so i had uninstalled mine. sorry it happened. thanks for sharing. good luck.

It's working now!! I reset it twice, went to bed, woke up tried it again and it let me in!!!! I had to setup a new pin and my card wasn't there anymore, but that's easy to readd it. I called Google so maybe they did something behind the scenes? Thanks guys for you're help! :)
