I just purchased a Samsung Galaxy Skyrocket and the market prompted me to upgrade to Google Play for the current market. However, I just have one problem. Google Play utilizes Google Wallet in which my bank is blocking all transactions coming directly from Google Wallet due to a high potential for fraud. Any and all transactions from Google Wallet are denied payment. I do not have other credit cards. I find this very odd as I have two other Android phones that are functioning just fine, but have not received any requests to upgrade the market to Google Play.
Can anyone please provide me suggestions as to if any of the following options will work or if more than one of these work, what's the best option. Is there a way to enter credit card directly when purchasing apps and avoid Google Wallet altogether? Is there a way to reset the market back to its old market and possibly circumvent Google Wallet this way by directly entering credit card or purchasing through AT&T account? I don't use other credit cards and would really like to avoid having to go get a prepaid credit card as there are usually per transaction charges on these thus bringing the cost of purchasing apps to probably double the cost or more.
If you have any answers that have worked, please respond as I am desperate to get moving on this awesome phone!

I am trying to use the bill my carrier option, and every transaction I make gets cancelled. It fails miserably. Ambiguous error messages that offer no help at all come from google's play app, and nothing or no one to answer the questions. Above post was made in may, and no replies were made. I guess we get to keep our money then...

I have the same issues. SOMETIMES they go though, but most of the time, it tells me I have to sign into my wallet to do it... then I try, and it says there are too many redirects
