    Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 with Square?

    Locked

    by technube ·

    Has anyone used the Square Credit Card Reader with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2?
    Doesn’t work for me. I hope the card reader is bad.

    Mine seems to have everything required. Not sure about the headphone jack. I don’t know if it also supports a microphone (required).

    If the headphone jack isn’t compatible, is there an attachment for the data port?

      I thought those were only for iPhone

      It seemed dumb to me to use the headphone jack instead of the data port, but whatever.

        I believe it’s compatible for Android. There’s a list of compatible devices on the website. It doesn’t explicity list the Galaxy Tab 2 as a compatible device, but it does state that Droid 2.2 and up is required. I’d hazard a guess that your device isn’t compatible. Here’s the link: https://squareup.com/card-reader

          Thanks,
          I’ll try another card reader. Maybe they sent the wrong one.

      Got a new tab 2 last weeks for the purpose of taking credit cards at art shows.. the square is not recognized. .. My account is working — we can use my girlfriend’s ipad with my account just fine… Headphone jack works (with headphones…) but I am at wit’s end with trying to get the square to work.. very disappointed with Samsung unless someone can tell me I’m doing something wrong. I find it hard to believe that there’s not more out there on this subject, but I am glad I found your post.. Any luck?

      Hi Greg,

      Thanks for your feedback. I checked with our engineers and the Tab 2 is not currently supported. I
