I've mentionedDeutsche Bahn's (DB) MMS Ticket some time ago but last weekend, I finally had the chance to test it. As a matter of fact, I was at at my parents and the printer was out of order. This means, I wasn't able to order my ticket over the Internet to print it at home on the PC. However, without a ticket, you cannot make a seat reservation and it's always a good idea to have a seat reservation on GermanInterCityExpress (ICE) because the German high-speed train can be pretty overcrowded and since I wanted a seat with a table in the mobile phone area, I had to reserve a seat. But what to do if the printer is kaput? Use the mobile phone instead and I remembered myprevious article here.

I'm too lazy to register

Tested something similar recently on my way to CES. Continental Airlines have the option to keep the electronic boarding pass ready for you at a certain web address. All you need to do is to show the page (or an image of it) to the scanner at security and at the gate. They don't need a credit card but the security check will ask for a photo ID.

Worked pretty well, although the barcode scanner at the gate took three attempts to read the code (maybe the ambient lighting wasn't optimal).
