Hello All, This is just a friendly reminder to read the Forum Charter where you wish to post before posting in it. :)
Hi all, The AutoSave Draft feature is now disabled across the site. The decision to disable the feature was made via a poll last year. The delay in putting it in place was due to a bug/update issue. This should serve as a reminder to manually save your drafts if you wish to keep them. Thanks, The Boards Team.
Hello all! This is just a quick reminder to ensure that you are posting a new thread or question in the appropriate forum. The Feedback forum is overwhelmed with questions that are having to be moved elsewhere.

    - at 6PM the next day

    Toll Buddy uses the new Local Notifications feature of iOS4 to alert you at the specified times.

    When the alert pops up you can tap “Pay Now” to return to Toll Buddy’s payment options screen.

    Tap on either the 1890 or international numbers for eFlow to pay by Laser/Credit Card or tap on PayZone to see a list of outlets nationwide where you can pay with cash.

    You can also review or clear all pending reminders. Individual reminders may also be removed with the usual swipe to delete gesture.
