E-Ticket Printing/Mobiles
« on: May 11, 2018, 12:12:22 PM »
Quick question.... I know they say I should print my ticket, but does anyone know if I can just bring it up on my mobile and wave that at the scanner instead? Seems like a waste of paper and more inconvenient.

I've done the mobile thing for gigs etc so figured it should work.

No - the scanners are an insert type (Card and paper have to be put in a slot)

In TR you have to insert the ticket to be scanned so it wouldn’t work with a phone

I don't know if you can wave anything at the scanner, it has to be inserted. I suspect a phone would be too fat to fit, even if it could read the details.

Insertion is always the better option. Rather than just waving it around outside.

Somebody always lowers the tone of a serious debate.

I have actually seen someone try to get access with their phone.Problem was I was stuck behind the guy , for what seemed like an age.The turnstile operator did let him in , so maybe it does work.I'd print it off though !

So I printed the ticket. And then tried my phone.

Phone worked no problem as the gap is plenty big enough.
