cashwrap case

Incipio announced today the launch of its new Cashwrap Mobile Wallet Case for the iPhone 4, 4S, 5, and 5s. The case features NFC tech, and works with the Isis Mobile Wallet app that lets users pay with their smartphones at participating retailers.

The accessory-maker has teamed up with AT&T to bring the Cashwrap to the masses, and it will be available in the company’s stores starting this month. The goal here is to get more iPhone owners using the carrier-backed Isis for mobile payments…

From the press release:

“Incipio®, designer and manufacturer of award winning mobile device accessories, announced today the launch of the Cashwrap™ Mobile Wallet® Case. The Cashwrap™ Case is available online for $69.99 starting January 24, and in AT&T company owned retail locations across the country starting on January 31.

Using the Incipio Cashwrap™ Case, consumers with an iPhone 4, 4S, 5, and 5S can utilize the Isis Mobile Wallet® to pay and save at stores with just a tap of their smartphone. The Isis Mobile Wallet holds participating payment and loyalty cards, as well as offers. The Incipio® Cashwrap™ Mobile Wallet Case is the only Near Field Communication (NFC) mobile solution for iPhone 5/5s.”

For those unfamiliar with Isis, it’s a joint venture between AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon in the mobile payment space. The NFC-based service has actually been around for a while now, but it’s only just now starting to pick up steam across the United States.

Here’s a promo clip for Isis:

    why do u want to put the cheap plastic on? or getting Samsung?

  • Phil Randle

    The case is thick, commbank in Australia has had one of the best solutions, it’s a paypass sticker that goes on the back of the iPhone and it works through a case, so you don’t need any really bulky cases like the one in this article.

    Uh, what? Really? “Important: These Isis-enabled iPhone cases are designed to work exclusively with AT&T smartphones. They will not function properly with an iPhone from any other carrier.”

    Isis doesn’t work on jailbroken or in Isis terms “rooted” device. It will just crash and xCon doesn’t work on iOS 7.

    I worked for Verizon when and I was informed that they don’t actually earn money down clients till about the 6th month of these telephone contract. The reason why being precisely that which you said. The customer’s phone is subsidized in the regular bill so they can register with a NEW telephone at a “coupon” price. By the 6th month, the device is “reduced” and they generate income down the service fees.
