I'm famiilar with McDonald's WiFi, using both laptops and smartphones. I assumed Google Wallet needed an Internet connection and either the WiFi or the cellular signal wasn't strong enough or present when I had used Wallet that time. In fact, before paying I always tried to make sure the prepaid card didn't say "updating," but showed the amount available.
I haven't used Wallet since the cloud-based service, and I'll have to check it out. Thanks for the info.
As you may have found out since then... google now DOES NOT need an active internet connection. They have gotten rid of the prepaid card and now use the "cloud". They store the last credit card you used... you only need internet access to ADD a card or SWITCH a card.
