    By not working, do you guys get a screen with a button that takes you to the appstore, before it tells you 'Cannot connect to iTunes' (even though it can connect fine).

    Doesnt look like there's a single UK service on Passbook, and you cant delete the damn app! :mad:

    Thanks, I will download that. But I would have no clue how to make it work with passbook once I download it :eek:
    Do you know?

    I think I do lol. I open passbook and see boarding passes,tickets,store cards, and coupons with a App Store button beneath that. I click it and it goes to the app store and shows me "Cannot connect to iTunes store". I've also tried the recommended fixes with no success.

    The fixes are hit and miss. It temporarily worked on my pre-order. However, if you get an app that can create a Passbook coupon, Passbook itself does. It's just that the App Store link doesn't work. Hopefully that's fixed in 6.0.1 as Apple must know about it (the "fix" is all over the blogs and online magazines).

    It is working fine on my second iPhone (unlocked that I bought in the store).

    Its actually working now that I purchased tickets on the fandango app. Although I'm not sure how to join the fandango with passbook. I click passbook and see the same, but when I click App Store it takes me to the compatible apps. What would be my next step? Do I need an actual account name on fandango? I'm totally not getting passbook atm lol.

    This is what happens to me as well.

    Slightly annoying.

    It works now for me, this was after I purchased tickets with the fandango app. At least thats how I think it worked for me. I just dont know how to make fandango show up in the passbook app. Anyone got that far?

    view the ticket within the fandango app and I believe there is an "Add" button that will send it over to passbook

    Passbook fix for those who get that error that it can't connect

    Go under to Settings > General > Date & Time

    Turn off set Automatically

    Change the year to 2013 > open up passbook. It should connect. Go back and change date & time to set automatically

    I don't see that option on the ticket only invite friends or add to calendar. Theres a chance this theater doesn't support mobile tickets maybe. Also see a message that says bring your credit card to pick up tickets from the box office. Not sure.

    when you bring up the ticket, does it display the barcode? check fandango.com and see if that theater supports mobile ticketing, I bet thats what the holdup is

    That seems no longer to be necessary. Yesterday I had the problem too, but today it works for me without any fix.

    I have a United Airlines flight booked next week and will try storing the boarding pass in Passbook from their app (which was updated yesterday).

    Yesterday and this morning Passbook did not work for me even after several attempts of the fix that worked for some people. I read on several sites and forums that the fix did not work for most people who posted comments however, I just tried opening Passbook ad connecting to the app store and IT WORKED! Yippee:D. Until more apps appear I will not have any use for it. Perhaps "Target".

    Bah, Passbook and the App Store still don't work for me. App Store worked when I first got my 5 but no longer.

    Lufthansa has already updated their app to support passbook.
