Quick tip for using PB to get e-boarding passes

Not sure if I'm allowed to post a tip/trick here but we'll give it a shot. 


If you want to get your e-boarding pass on the PB rather than your phone (currently my primary airline's mobile app is not supported) , instead of having your e-boarding pass sent to your mobile phone as a text message send it to the email address that you smart phone receives. Now over the Bridge email go to the message with the link to the e-boarding pass (you will need wifi for this). When you can see your e-boarding pass on the screen in the browser, take a screen shot by pressing the PB up  and down volume buttons at the same time. Making sure the complete barcode is visible (you can even zoom i first to make it easier for the airline scanners to read).  I would also recommend that you click the little tab on the far upper right hand of the PB browser window to hide the address bar just to have a little more room.
