Verizon Launches its Isis Mobile Wallet

Verizon Wireless officially launched its Isis Mobile Wallet is available nationwide, allowing customers to securely store virtual versions of their credit and debit cards on their smartphones.

At launch, Verizon Wireless claims more than 200,000 retail locations across the U.S., including Toys 'R' Us, Jamba Juice, and Coca-Cola vending machines, are equipped with tap-to-pay terminals compatible with Isis.

"Isis Mobile Wallet is the next revolutionary feature for your smartphone, changing how you shop in the same way camera apps forever changed how you snap and share pictures, or how Google Maps changed how you navigate in your car," said Jerry Fountain, president for Verizon Wireless in Carolinas and Tennessee. "But Isis is more than just a convenient way to pay. Security and identity theft are major concerns for most consumers, and Isis builds an extra layer of protection around your transactions."
