But my personal phone is a Samsung so I'm probably not going there any time soon even though it's technically capable of it.


I don't even like the chipped cards. In locations where the readers are equipped to handle sliders and chipped cards, I'm annoyed by the fact that they force me to use the chip if the card has it. It was easier to just swipe the card in the slot. With the chip, I've got to insert the end of the card and wait for a month while it thinks. The swipe never made me wait.

Paying with a phone is just as much trouble as using the chip.

Give me back my swipe cards. Faster than using the chips, and faster than using the cell phone. Screw extra security, I want the least effort.
