    I traveled this week by Delta airlines, and for the first time had 2 of my boarding passes sent to my Thunderbolt. They came in just fine. Then when at the airport and having to show the screen with the boarding pass symbol, the scanners couldn't recognize it because (according to one of the workers there) the symbol was too large. It filled up most of the screen. I saw another passenger nearby with the symbol on her phone, but it was a lot smaller in size on the screen and it scanned through just fine.

    So my question is, is there any way to shrink down the size of the computer symbol? I couldn't figure out any way to do that. And I don't understand why it came through so large on my phone and small on the other woman's phone.

    Well... you could try touching the pic of the barcode for 4 seconds or so, then save it, then open it in your pictures gallery in your applist and from there its just pinch to zoom and vice versa.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I was able to save the pic of the symbol as a gif to my gallery. Then went to the Gallery and opened it, which opened small. That may be the solution. The only thing is, it did not save the text data that displays below the symbol which has important data the security folks wanted to see. (Sorry I forgot to mention about the text). I'm just not totally in the know yet as to how to do everything on the Thunderbolt. Some of the procedures are slightly different from the Droid that I was accustomed to.
    Thanks for the suggestion, it did work for the symbol!

    are you rooted?
    only reason i ask is because you could take a screen capture of the image, then use the stock photo editor to crop the image. this will get the image and the necessary text and anything else you want.

    Rooted?

    I do not know what it means to be rooted. Can you explain that to me?

    An easier solution is to hold the screen further away from the scanner ... Believe it it not most employees that use scanners everyday have no idea that there is a little red laser than scans the barcode... If one barcode is bigger than what they are used to scanning then they HAVE TO hold the item further away so the scanner can see ALL of it ...

    Hopefully this works for you... Let me know ;)

    rooting means you unlock your phone to have its full potential. you hack it to do anything you want. you can change the software, to browsing the phone better, to manipulating files or anything. kind of like jailbreaking a iphone is you know what that is? (only rooting a droid is SOSOSO much better, jailbreaking a iphone does nothing for ya! i hate apple...but thats in my opinion)

    I probably won't be flying any time soon, so won't be able to test your idea. The thing about the scanners in the boarding area--there's not much room to put a paper or phone under it. I don't know if they're portable or detachable--didn't see anyone pick it up.

    rooting

    I just spent some time reading all about rooting on the Thunderbolt. At this time, I am not going to do it. Down the road, maybe, but I don't really need to do it. For boarding passes, I will probably revert to the paper printout.

    Sorry everyone, I'm just not quite as techy as you all! :blink:

    Thanks to everyone for their ideas!
