    you use NFC with what app for this? just curious...
    UGO wallet is what I use for the Passport. You will also need an NFC enabled sim.
    It works great at 99% of places that accept tap and go.
    But to be honest it's just easier to pull out your card and tap.

    This is either the ultimate cool story bro, or I'm missing some innuendo towards the end of the post...

    Same thing happened to me when I first got my Passport but...the icing on the cake was when I asked "is your terminal Tap and Pay?" she said yes and when I tapped to pay for my Panamornous Pepperoni Pizzas, all I can say from looking at her face in addition to the people at the counter...PRICELESS especially when one of the customers asked if she could do that on her iPhone and I politely said most likely not because there's no Apple Pay plus I do believe you're using the 5S which doesn't have NFC technology. These terminals are just regular Visa and Mastercard Tap and Pay through PayPass and PayWave which all BlackBerry 10 and most Android devices can use.

    That was amazing. We need more people like you to tell people that NFC is way ahead of Apple pay and BlackBerry had NFC technology before the apple pay seed was even planted.

    It's not about NFC being ahead of apple pay. It's the genius of apple to have their pay system widely accepted by banks, merchants and CC providers. And with apple pay you're not restricted to the type of CC. With NFC apps such as UGO wallet only certain CC's can be added to the wallet.

    NFC is to fractured and fragmented. Apple was able to design and market their pay system very well.

    Apple is the only one who can go around the standards and make them obsolete and force people use their propriety system. We had NFC on our BB's 5 years ago when apple didn't have them on their latest for several more years. Remember iPhone 5 did not have NFC. It's a shame, really, we have to carry our wallets and cellphone these days. Credit cards, cash and loyalty cards are the ones that should be obsolete...

    The Pizza Hut at Marble Arch in London is seriously one of the nicest pizza places I've ever seen. It couldn't believe it was the same Pizza Hut that we have in America. It's like a full blown restaurant.

    Oh, glad your Passport got some attention too

    In Europe in general even fast food places are much nicer and significantly better quality then over the Atlantic. I tried McD's in Montreal, Canada last time I went there and hated it compared to any in Europe. With Pizza Hut the discrepancy is even bigger.

    So true. I've been to McDonald's in England and Italy, and both were worlds better than the McDonald's we have here.

    One of the following statements about OP is true:

    1. OP has a family of eight.
    2. OP still has pizza in the fridge.

    :P

    Indeed, like I said in my previous post the biggest disparity I saw is Pizza Hut. Pizza Hut anywhere in Europe does not function nor does it look like from the inside like the fast food chain that it is in US. Differences in taste are enormous and they actually make the pizza on the spot (far too many times in US I got a bit more upscale version of frozen pizzas). You wait about 15min for your pizza to be finished, but it's so worth it. Pizza Hut here also accepts AMEX cards, which is a big plus for me because I almost never get to use that card because nearly no one accepts it.
