Rogers SureTap Launches today - Anyone going for it?
Mobile payment: Rogers suretap arrives in Canada | Rogers RedBoard
The less I have to go into a wallet, worry about finding exact change and can just use my cellphone... the better! I am specifically talking about when I buy coffee and usually use paypass to pay. There are other occasions too (for example, just went to an office supply store and could have used it.)
Only thing left is to get the NFC card once I'm done work and try it out.
Anyone else going to give it a try?

One of the best parts of all this for RIM is the free advertisments they are going to get from Rogers, Its a selling point during the purchase of a phone thats for sure or why would Rogers bother. Plus there should be posteres up in the locations promoting it. Go RIM.

I voted no not because I wouldn't, but because my phone doesn't have NFC. Once I get my hands on a BB10, and assuming that my bank is on board, I will give it a try. I will not, however, get a new Visa just to have the option.

Probably not. I don't use Rogers as my provider, I don't bank with CIBC, and Visa is pretty much the only credit card I've never used. For people who use all three, and a BB? Sounds like a good starting point for mobile payments by RIM.
Sides, my G3 already does that. I am hoping there is a system in place (bigger in scope than this one) when BB10 comes out. Maybe if I get lucky I can make mobile payments using any bank and carrier and provider; or however they want to work it.Cuius testiculos habes, habeas cardia et cerebellum...

One of the problems I see with SureTap is that the limit is 50$, and I usually don't use my credit card for purchases that small.Click here ---->Lendo's .APK to .BAR Thread <---- Click here

CIBC is offering $15 credit if you sign up between November 16 and December 31 on eligible devices. Great to see them support and provide incentives although the carrier exclusivity hampers the general availability including myself.

Rogers SureTap Launches today - Anyone going for it?
i am in the rare group who
1) Uses Rogers
2) Has CIBC Visa
3) Has a 9900
i did all the installation, and have now used it a couple times
its pretty handy as now i dont carry my wallet during my work day when all i would need it for is to buy lunch.
People always look confused (including staff members) when i use it, and then they are like, "Wow, thats pretty cool."

I saw this on n4bb this morning. I called my local rogers store to make sure that they have NFC H+ SIMS. Check. CIBC VISA. check. Bold. Check.
Downloaded the app and it checks to see that you have a NFC simcard. Then it asks you to call CIBC which is a one-button press feature.
Called CIBC and after a few security Q's, they sent THE CIBC APP, not BB SMS a text with all of my VISA info.
Setup a password for the app and done.
Then I went to get a BIG MAC and it worked great.
However, I upgraded my OS right after lunch to Rogers V220.127.116.11xx and it deleted the secure info that CIBC sent to the APP. So I will have to call them again. No biggie.
Great job Rogers, CIBC, VISA and RIM.

Unfortunately I'm missing 2 of the 3 components for this to work for me. I'm not a CIBC cardholder and don't have an NFC phone. Otherwise I would jump all over this Rogers program. I would love to just carry my cell phone around when I go grocery shopping at Loblaws. I would still need to carry my Visa card around for other places that don't have the NFC terminals yet however....Torch bridged with Playbook.

I got it... here is another item to add to the list of requirements. Yes, need CIBC Visa, yes, need Rogers, yes need BB9900. But also, if you are on corporate/BES plan, you can't just buy and install the SIM yourself. You need to get the SIM and have your Rogers account rep (ie. your IT manager) call rogers and do the switch of the SIM on your account. Rogers wouldn't let me do it directly.
Not that it is set up, it works great.

Anyone having problems getting this to work? I have all the requirements but whenever I use it at a terminal....nothing...I have tried many different places and nothing. My NFC works just fine otherwise on my music gateway. CIBC has escalated my issue....i love getting escalated.
