Cingular and Citibank are starting a mobile payment trial in New York City. Citibank Mastercard users will be offered a Nokia phone with an NFC chip tied directly to their account. They will be able to pay for McDonalds, movies and even subway fare using the handset. Cingular, Nokia, and Motorola have previously run trials in south Florida, Atlanta and most recently, Dallas. There the trials included 7 Eleven stores and prepaid subscribers. Despite the number of trials, no US carriers have committed to launching contactless payment on their phones.

I'm sorry we don't accept Sanyos, We do accept all major credit cellphones (Motorola, Nokia, Samsung,LG, and Blueberry)

Like what happens if you let your kid use your cell phone?

Will cellphones have some type of pay pass as payment taken from your account?

What about if your phone is stolen, and you can't contact your bank about it to change your account number?...

Just another way....

For customers to try to say they didn't "Authorize" these charges on their bill. Rolling Eyes

Of course you didn't authorize it, you gave it to someone else to use, and they authorized it for you! Laughing
