    Hi guys

    I am from the UK,
    I am coming over to the states in the next couple of months,
    I have an iPhone 6 which I bought in the UK,
    I want to be able to use apple pay for when I am there,
    The problem is the UK doesn't have apple pay up and running yet,
    Right now my bank doesn't support apple pay.
    so what are my options on getting this to work,

    Thanks

    Yes, if you can infect get Apple Pay to work in the UK, all you have to do is change the phone language and region to united states. However unless you have a US bank account, you cannot use it as no banks currently support it.

    So to answer the questions, yes you can get Apple Pay to display on your UK phone, but no you cannot actually use it because it requires a bank card from a US bank.

    Thank you for your quick response.
    That's what I thought,
    So next thing is to open a new account in the USA.
