    Using the phone as an A/L boarding pass

    Phones like the Nexus One can now be used as your boarding pass when both going through security and checking in on an airline (in my case, Amerian Airlines). But I have a problem. I get the email for check in and access my boarding pass, but I can find no way to save the screen. So far, I have just called up the email again and accessed the American Airlines web site, but if you have no Internet access that could be a problem (say for example, security is in an area with a lot of metal in the building and hence, no Internet). There should be a way to save the information (i.e., save the screen; it has a bar code type of symbol and your flight and personal information). Is there any way to do this without having to go again to the airline's web site?

    Is your phone rooted? If so you could use a screenshot app like drocap2.

    When on the airlines website, is the boarding pass a picture displayed on your screen? If yes, you can long press on the image and save it to your SD card. It will be saved in a Downloads folder there and you can call that up in image gallery. (This works for non rooted phones)

    Ah yes that too is a good idea. Didn't even think of that one.

    Thanks. For the record, what exactly does 'rooted' mean? Wouldn't have a clue if my phone is rooted or not! The option for the long press should work fine (yes, there is an image of the boarding pass). I will get the opportunity to try it tomorrow.

    If you bought your phone new and if you don't know if you're rooted, you aren't.

    Don't see anything in a newer phone that gives me a temptation to leave my Nexus One!
