Re: Problems with Android Pay (in UK with mastercard credit card)

Prototype89 Thanks for your suggestion. I will have to give it a try. Are you able to add the fingerprint unlock back in after you do it in this order? I would have to say I would rather keep fingerprint unlock feature over android pay capabilities, since you can't use it everywhere yet anyway.

Sadly not.

The fingerprint unlock was one of the best things about this device so I was quite sad to turn it off to use Android Pay.

 

You must leave the fingerprint function turned off until Google Play/ Sony implement a fix.

Re: Problems with Android Pay (in UK with mastercard credit card)

For those of us with Z5's that don't have the fingerprint sensor hardware (like the US version E6603) but have a screen unlock code configured, there is apparently no solution. Unfortunately I can't remove my screen unlock code to try it, because my employer's virtual network and email require one through domain policy, and there is no way amound that on an non-rooted Xperia; rooting would most likely disrupt Android Pay anyway.

All I can do is wait until Sony publishes an update.

Re: Problems with Android Pay (in UK with mastercard credit card)

the fingerprint scaner was a compelling feature to buy the phone.  you missed the point  the convenience of  any NFC payment system is to save stepts and speed..   it  easyer to  swipt the card than  hold the phone with one hand while type  in a pin with the other and while keeping  in the  distance range while blocking your screen so other don't see you pin.  

 

Hopefull it will be fix in the next update if not   Note 7 is just around the corrner .

I believe you are right that 6.0.0 was alright, then 6.0.1 killed it.

Android Pay UK Issues after update

Hi All
I've been having issues with Android Pay (UK) based since the latest update for Xperia Z5 build number 32.2.A.0.253. I've had a look over the form for other issues, like this http://talk.sonymobile.com/t5/Xperia-Z5-Z5-Compact-Z5-Premium/Android-pay-keeps-asking-to-unlock/m-p... and http://talk.sonymobile.com/t5/Xperia-Z5-Z5-Compact-Z5-Premium/Problems-with-Android-Pay-in-UK-with-m... and even this http://talk.sonymobile.com/t5/Xperia-Z5-Z5-Compact-Z5-Premium/Xperia-Z5-Premium-failing-SafetyNet-ch... but yet no luck. Below are the facts:

 

  • Worked before update
  • Phone passes SafetyNet checks
  • No smart lock enabled
  • Fingerprint used 
     
    If anyone might have an idea that'll be great. I've contacted Google they'll be getting back to me soon with their finding and hopefully fix, I’ll post updates here
     
    Thanks in advance

Re: Android Pay UK Issues after update

Hi Guys,

 

So after spending all day crawling the internet looking for a solution I think I’ve come across one myself. I've had 100% success rate since on multiple purchases and works like before the 6.0.1 update. 

 

The solution in basic terms is to reset Google Play Services and set up Android Pay on your device. I did this by going into Apps > Google Play Services > Storage > Mange Space > Clear all storage options. I then restarted my phone and opened up Android Pay and it rested the app basically. Added my card etc and its worked ever since then. With the finger print enabled as well.

 

Now being this my first self-fix not sure if this works for everyone, and please bear with me as I'm not expert. but thought I’d share with you all see if it helps anyone Slightly smiling Face
