    When I paid yesterday, the older lady serving me knew exactly what was going on. The guy next me at the register getting his order....not so much LOL

    The look on the guys face was priceless

    I almost felt like holding up the phone, and just saying "BlackBerry "

    Only thing I would like is if it emailed receipt

    CB10'n it via da Z
    The app lists all your transaction history for you.

    According to the press release in the Ottawa Citizen not all Tim's have the capability for paying with the app.

    I was unclear after reading that if NFC was everywhere and bar code scanning was in a select region (largely Niagara if memory serves) or if there were intermittent stores with NFC..

    I know that, and that's fine. But if I'm traveling my meals are covered. To reconciliation my expenses, I need receipts.

    I am pretty sure you get one if you pay via the nfs....you just need to ask I figure, but in my excitement yesterday I forgot to ask. LOL

    So it got me thinking, having an option to have the receipt electronically sent would be slick...no?

    I can confirm this works in Toronto area as well. I just told her I'm paying with a Tim Cards.

    As I touched my phone to it she was like "are you serious?"

    Then she asks me "what about iPhone?" Too which I replied no only Blackberry as I showed her the blackberry logo on the phone. Lol

    I just used it in East York. I just said I was paying with my Tim's card. The guy practically flipped out when he watched me "WHAAA?? How did you do that? He just paid with his phone" LOL. I was surprised by his reaction, it was pretty funny.

    When I removed my phone it did say "connection error" but then showed the debit and all was good. Not sure why.
    I had the same connection error. I thought it didn't work... but it work. NFC doesn't need to be connected to work... basically it's all done on Tim Horton's servers.

    I think it was the app trying to update your balance and it couldn't reach the server. But then as soon as it reaches, it shows the proper balance

    Unless we all live in Niagara... it's probably in most Tim Hortons! ;-)

    Here in montreal, it's a Chase Bank terminal. Not sure about elsewhere

    The bar code scanning is only in the Niagara region. The NFC payment is rolled out nation wide. If it has a chase payment terminal or one that accepts wireless payments, e.g. paypass or pay wave. It should work.

    I went into the Timmy's at Victoria/Westmount (Kitchener) this morning to give NFC paying a try. The cashier knew what I was doing. I have a $30 balance, showing on the phone, which I presented to him.
    I tapped 'Pay Now' on the BlackBerry and placed it flat up to the card reader (as if trying to set the phone on top of the reader) and sadly, nothing happened on two separate attempts. Shamefully I pulled the corresponding gift card from my wallet and proceeded to pay by swiping like a caveman
    I'll chalk it up to user error this time.

    I hate to give up however there was a bit of a line forming behind me. You don't want to hold up a bunch of people waiting in line for their first coffee of the day.

    I know my Z30 NFC is on and working. I used it to transfer a few files from my Z10, just a bit earlier this morning. It vibrates when transferring files (that's how I have it set).

    Two questions
    - will it vibrate when making an NFC payment?
    - where were you folks holding the phone, in relation to the card reader, when it worked for you?

    Cheers

    Someone posted above that the Z30 NFC antenna is near the top, so if you put the middle of the phone on the terminal it may not work.

    On the Chase terminal, you put the back of the phone (mine is a Z10) directly on the screen. And it should be basically instant

    For the Z30 it worked for me when I put the top of the phone (top half) over the reader

    Called Tim Hortons head office. They did some research and called me back. I was told that this is still considered "pilot" and is only available in certain restaurants in the Niagara Falls area. That's why my local restaurant was unaware. Wtf???

    Has anyone been able to get this working at any Timmy's outlets outside of this region?

    Posted via CB10
    Actually that's not correct. The only part that us a pilot project is the bar code scanning option for iPhone and Android, and that is limited to the Niagara region. The NFC BlackBerry App will work anywhere were NFC or Tim Cards are accepted. I've used mine twice at two different Timmies in Victoria.

    Some newspapers got it wrong (as usual). NFC is at all locations that currently take NFC enabled card and the bar code thing for iPhone is just for the Niagara region.

    Didn't work for me in the drive though. The guy in the window didn't have a clue why I was holding up my phone. I asked him to hand me the card reader but no matter how i held the phone to it, it didn't work. Anyone else?

    Don't forget to tell them you are Paying with a Tim Card. They need to select that option before you can tap your phone against the terminal. It won't work if they choose another payment method like visa/mastercard.
