Many users, upon booting up their brand new EVO LTEs over the past few weeks, were confused to find that Google Wallet would stick in the "adding prepaid card" dialogue, often returning an error message which encouraged users to try again later. It soon became apparent that this issue was limited to the EVO LTE, as it was discovered that modifying the device’s build.prop to identify as a Galaxy Nexus returned the app to full functionality.
A few days ago, though, Wallet began telling EVO LTE users that "Google Wallet has not yet been certified in your country or on your device / carrier," locking users out of the app entirely, leading to frustration, confusion, and (of course) rumors regarding the meaning of the app’s shifty behavior.
