I know I'm excited to use this feature. I have seen a few of my friends get stung by credit card theft. So I can not wait to use it.

I'll not be using it, since most of the places where I buy stuff won't accept it.

Me too, but as I live in Europe, I will probably be carrying the iPhone 7 by the time it's introduced.

I might use it, not sure. I shop at Target (and their security is already screwed up so why not?) and Whole Foods. Can't remember what other places I use that would have it.

I live less than a mile from a Walgreens, and they accept it. I go there pretty regularly too. That's the only place I've noticed so far that accepts mobile payments, and that will probably be the only place I'll use it.

I'm excited to use it, and I've already emailed my credit union to get on board. Knowing them, it'll probably be another year, but I live in hope!

I got stung by the Target crap last year, and narrowly escaped this month's Home Depot debacle by a few days, so this is right up my alley.

I will use it anywhere that I can. Hope Apple finally supporting it will get the technology spread to more stores.

The only reason I bought the 6 was for Apple Pay so yes.
Although most of my stores are not setup yet.:(

100000% Going to be using it, I may even set my God Forsaken Wallet that I have lost at least 3 times in the last 10 years on fire after my first transaction. Theres nothing more that i waited for then this and the next thing i look forward to is not having to deal with cashiers at grocery stores, department stores etc. We have the technology to replace them and not even have to take anything out of your cart, just walk through scanner and your down.

I'm definately looking forward to it. It'll take me a while to completely get rid of my wallet but it seems promising.

I might try it but I have very little interest in it. I'd prefer using my credit cards for now.

I'll use it a bunch, if stores accept it. We just need more places other than McDonalds, Walmart, and Starbucks — places I am seldom at, if ever. I agree that a list of supporting franchises would be great.
