    Why do I see so many people posting Barcodes when you can't make them an addition directly from your phone... this must be concluded either from a secondary device or computer... etc...is this being implemented in a future OS update .... or is this feature already available and I'm simply... unaware.

    If they post a barcode for a group, you can simply go to BBM, click on join group (from the overflow buttons) and scan the barcode.

    All that does is bring up your native camera app... this is solely used for scanning codes that are " physically " present

    Do you want to share a bar code? A BBM one?

    Old thread but still wish there was a solution to this problem. When the bar code is a picture on the Internet, or post (as the one is above) on your phone it doesn't work. You can't scan your own phone screen with its camera. Should be an option to 'scan bar code' on screen or within a picture. At least I could do a screen capture and then 'scan bar code within a picture' in BBM.

    There is always a pin under the barcode, use that to enter it manually.

    I think what is needed is an OS level "treat image as QR code" and then it should just parse it. It may be necessary to have an API "send to app... as QR Code" or just always look for barcodiness in raster files on longpress.

    I've seen some with pins below the bar code but if it's a picture you can't copy and paste them
    Also the above bar codes don't show a pin....
