    to see your barcode:
    open bbm
    scroll to the top where you see your icon/name/availability and click it
    scroll down halfway to see your pin
    scroll down to the bottom and click "display my barcode" to see your barcode

    to scan someone else's barcode:
    open bbm
    hit your bb key and select "invite contact"
    scroll down to "scan a person's barcode" and click it
    hold your camera over the other person's barcode (displayed on their bb screen" and it will automatically scan the code and add the friend

    oh.

    to use your pin barcode as a profile pic, you need to screencap it while you have it up on your bb screen. download an app called "captureIt" from appworld. this will save a screencap of whatever you have displayed on your screen. then just upload the pic to cb.com.

    ***edit***
    this is assuming you have bbm version 5.0 or higher. if you have 4.x, you need to upgrade to use these features. go to options>apps>bbm to check your version.

    you can download it via blackberry appworld, or by opening the browser on your bb and finding a link from there. then download the update and run it.

    NOTE: don't forget to back up your current bbm contact list before you do the upgrade, just in case!

    An easier way to find your pin is to type "my pin" as one word in a text or email or even this text box (on your tour, of course). Then hit space and it should show up. Simple!

    if you can't find it in appworld, try downloading through your bb web browser from the following site:
