Verizon Introduces Isis Mobile Wallet Nationwide

GREENVILLE, S.C., Nov. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Verizon Wireless announces Isis Mobile Wallet is available nationwide, offering customers the opportunity to securely store virtual versions of their credit and debit cards on their smartphones. Isis Mobile Wallet also stores loyalty cards, coupons and other special offers, streamlining the process of shopping and saving.

Isis Mobile Wallet uses near-field communication (NFC), a technology that allows a smartphone to securely transmit information to a payment terminal with the touch of a finger.

"Isis Mobile Wallet is the next revolutionary feature for your smartphone, changing how you shop in the same way camera apps forever changed how you snap and share pictures, or how Google Maps changed how you navigate in your car," said Jerry Fountain, president for Verizon Wireless in Carolinas and Tennessee. "But Isis is more than just a convenient way to pay. Security and identity theft are major concerns for most consumers, and Isis builds an extra layer of protection around your transactions."

A PIN-protected smartphone means thieves cannot instantly rack up charges to an account the way they could with a stolen card in hand. Additionally, Verizon Wireless can freeze the entire mobile wallet if a customer reports a smartphone as lost or stolen.

At launch, more than 200,000 retail locations across the country, including Toys 'R' Us, Jamba Juice, and Coca-Cola vending machines, are equipped with tap-to-pay terminals compatible with Isis. Users can find exclusive offers from nearby merchants and add participating loyalty cards into the mobile wallet for hassle-free access.

Isis Mobile Wallet is available for download from the Google Play Store. To use Isis, customers need an enhanced SIM card in their smartphone, available from My Verizon or at Verizon Wireless retail locations. To check if a smartphone is already Isis-ready, visit the Verizon Wireless website. Verizon currently offers 15 Isis-ready smartphones, including the Samsung Galaxy S4 and several from the DROID family.
