Mobile phones and ticket/hotel purchases

Just a very quick question:

Have any of you successfully used a mobile phone to purchase Pax tickets or use OnPeak to reserve hotels, and if so, what OS is your phone (windows, iOS, droid)?

    I was out and about last year on 10/8, when my ticket confirmation is dated. I think it was a Monday holiday. Got a twitter notification about tickets, and while it was definitely slower than doing it on a desktop, I believe I purchased my tickets without issue via my phone without a problem. I was (and still am) using a Galaxy Nexus running Android, probably 4.1 at the time, using the Chrome browser most likely.

    I will warn, however, that they did change the system used to purchase tickets for Prime, and may use the same one for East. It's a queue system, and I'm not confident on how well it would work on mobile browsers.

    I've succesfully used my mobile to get tickets. Granted, it's very helpful to be in at least a 3G network area,

    I use Dolphin browser on my Android phone. I will warn that it did not work to purchase badges last year.

    I was stuck at the waiting queue forever, and could never finish the transaction before timing out and getting booted back to square one. This was using a solid 4G connection too.

    Instead I purchased passes from a desktop and got thru the whole purchase fairly fast. That was after several failed attempts with my phone.

    I was able to buy PAX tickets on my phone for East 2013 and Prime 2013, I was using my iPhone at the time with Safari.

    Thanks for the responses! I was really fishing to see if Safari would cooperate with the registration system, so good thing.
