Oh gosh, I think I won't be able to apply because I'm going to Sao Paulo's Comic Con on Saturday 9th, and according to the timezone, 9A.M is going to be 3 P.M here in Brazil, which is unfortunate because is the exact time of the Marvel panel here and unfortunatelly I won't be able to pick up my phone ;3; Oh gosh

Most of them don't speak in english ;3; they won't understand the system  :( I'll try to figure something out, like, maybe I'll go to the bathroom of the panels (luckily the bathrooms are inside the panel area). Maybe this way I'll be able to try! I'll have  4 friend with me at the panel, so I won't lose my place in my chair anyways :)

If the cell/wifi connection is good, you should be able to do it in the panel. there is no audio - it's just screen prompts. the biggest problem will be the waiting, having to enter the waiting area between 8am & 9am pt, then waiting to see if you get picked. Usually the sale takes 40mins to an hour to sell out. Not everyone will be able to get into the buying area-
I just want you to understand the amount of time it may take and it may not work out -

There have been recent years where I literally was working (I teach HS band so Returning Reg. has occasionally been during a marching band rehearsal/performance day for me) and almost forgot to log in until the last 5 or so minutes before start time and I still got badges I wanted (4-day) so I think it literally makes absolutely no difference what times you login in as long as it is before go-time.
Also, I've purchased badges fairly recently with both my iPad (using my phone as a hot spot for wifi) and an iPhone (w/cell service/no wi-fi).  Luckily IIRC there is a one-time "if you get disconnected log back in immediately and you won't miss your place in the virtual line" so even if you get bumped off you could still have a shot at badges. 

Good luck!

Yea, just make sure u log in or check in asap before they open sales cause u have to be in wait room ahead of time and its like fishing kinda, u sit and wait till u catch one or they pull u in to buy any badges that are left for any days. time zones can be a pain so do the best u can to be in wait room ahead of time.

Added a calendar link for archival purposes to show when new Member IDs were no longer eligible for the next year's Con. I missed that little blurb the other day.

Geez, the 9th is the worst possible day that they could have held the Gen Reg. Me and half of my SDCC squad will be at a show this morning. I suppose we'll all have to use our smartphones/tablets and continually monitor them for an hour. I can't bring my laptop into the show with me as it's too cumbersome to drag around.
