the Incentive months effective from the date you accept the
What if I don't have the UALByPhone service but one of
your other services?
Unfortunately, this Referral Incentive program only applies for
our UALByPhone service.
What if I'm only on a 30-day Free Trial and have not
subscribed, but made several referrals?
The Referral Incentive Program can only be successful from a
subscriber's stand point. Upon your complete annual
subscription, our system will update your profile and allow you
to apply any and all Referral Incentive months due.
Is there a way to keep track of my Referrals?
Yes. In the Setup tab of UALByPhone, you will now find a
new option - REFERRAL INCENTIVE PROGRAM. Click this option
to display your list of Referrals. Any un-applied Referral

What's new with
(Posted Nov. 3, 2010)
We've rolled out a few new features with ualbyphone.com Version
220.127.116.11. Most noticeable of course, is our new logo matching our
revised interface icons.
A revised Monthly schedule retrieval process allowing you to
display up to two months (when available) on the main Unimatic
screen as shown below:
Our revised Monthly Schedule retrieval
process simply retrieves your monthly schedule and displays
within the page, allowing you to display it again later
without having to go through the retrieval process. You
can display up to a two-month schedule (when available).
This feature is part of the flight attendant's Trade Board
function offering a convenient reference to their schedule for
A modified flight attendant Flight Briefing (IBSBDS) request
format allowing retrieval of the briefing sheet for mixed crews.
Previous format simply requested the "based ID" briefing sheet.
For added security and data integrity, we have revised the User
Profile page to require an added step by checking a box next to
"Update Passcode and Email" when updating or editing these two
items along with your United passwords.
Again, this is only for updating your Passcode and Email and the
check is not required to update/edit your United passwords.
Pilot Preflight Enhanced
The flight briefing has been added to the Preflight function.
The entire PLTBRF for you next flight will be retrieved and
displayed after the aircraft routing information.
Schedules Expanded to All Airlines
At your request, we have added the capability to retrieve
schedules from all airlines including UAL. The Apollo format
shows the number of seats available for sale in each cabin
category. For those that can interpret these numbers, you will
have an idea of the amount of open seats on the other airlines.
Very handy for commuting.
If you don't already know, each retrieval is stored in two
history files on our server, one for Unimatic and one for
Apollo. By opening the history file at the bottom of the
Unimatic and Apollo menus, you can view all the information that
you have retrieved from both Unimatic and Apollo. The file
contains the most recent 300k of history. You do need an
internet connection to view the history files as they are stored
on our server.
