Cineplex started doing that as well last fall--telling customers "no need to print tickets--just display on your phone at entry" (but the tickets are saved as a pdf that can still be printed).Hambone wrote: ↑Tue Jun 11, 2019 4:22 pmWonder how that would work for one of my friends up here. He's still using a flip phone and is totally content to stick with it until either it dies or he does. A few others in my circle of friends who go to the pub for an after work sociable (even though they are retired) still don't have cell phones. Their wives might but they don't.B.C.FAN wrote: ↑Tue Jun 11, 2019 2:17 pmThe paperless ticket process is explained on the Lions' website:CardiacKid wrote: ↑Tue Jun 11, 2019 2:01 pmTake a look in the little "FYI" pamphlet that was included in the ST package that was recently sent out. I skimmed it but I recall a paragraph mentioning the Lions have gone to a non-hard copy system for tickets (or at least those of the PDF variety) in an effort to defeat scams, etc.
I guess businesses are assuming it's 2019, and smartphones have reached saturation level.
I hung onto my 8 year old Samsung flip phone (which was still working fine) right up until 2015, when I switched to a Galaxy Note. I use it more as a tablet--with that screen size you can do most anything on it.
