Verizon, Who Are A Bunch Of Jerks, Took Samsung Pay Off The Galaxy S7 And S7 Edge (But You Can Sideload It)

Softcard group that is currently partnered with (read: taking money from) Android Pay, it seems probable that Samsung wasn’t willing to cut Verizon in on Samsung Pay revenue – if there is any – to the degree they desired. And so, Verizon strong-armed Samsung into removing the app. This is objectively dumb. Searching the Play Store or Galaxy Apps from Verizon’s S7 or S7 edge for “Samsung Pay” yields no results.

The good news? It appears Samsung Pay is easily sideloaded onto Verizon S7 and S7 edges. I just tested an APK from Android Police’s sister site APK Mirror, which you can find right here, and added a card and put the phone into MST mode, and it seems to work just fine. I haven’t actually paid for anything, but if you get that far, presumably it’s functional.

But seriously. Verizon: because someone had to mess it up.
