    You dont need "activate" passbook. You can add passes/cards/tickets to passbook from the apps that support it. Curently there are about 10 apss that do that including Fandango, walgreens, Target etc.

    thx, but: when i press the Passbook icon it shows 4 icons (flight, tkts, coupons, biz cards) and "App store" - when THAT was pressed/touched, i get another 5 only: Lufthansa, Ihotel, United Airlines, American airlines and eBillets. last button says "redeem" and that is all.

    If those are the only apps showing up then are the only ones available in your area/country. I am assuming you are out of the US because you do not have Target, Walgreens or Fandango. The four icons you see are part of an info screen that informs you what you can do with PassBook. The only link that works from there is the App store link.

    I'm stuck like this too. When I download the apps, they just download onto my main screen as normal apps. It doesn't go into the passbook and does that fancy stuff.

    I've downloaded a couple of apps too and don't see any change. I'm only guessing at this point, but reading this - perhaps Passbook is mostly just a glorified alert system - and won't look different until a timed event happens?

    It will look different when you add passes/tickets from within the apps that support PassBook.

    That will happen after you have added the passes.
