    You already have it on your phone.. it will only read certain types of Barcodes and its mainly for use with BBM.

    hey rick, turn off your caps lock!

    blackberry messenger 5.0 includes the ability to read QR codes in order to add people to your BBM as a contact. im not sure if it reads general codes for information, but it may. it would require you to find a link to download the new BBM5. search the native apps forum on the main forums page for more info on it. as for a stand alone QR code reader, im not sure if one is available for blackberries yet. but judging from this link, you may be in luck...

    you are probably downloading a link to a zip file as if its for a computer install. you want to google on your phone "blackberry messenger 5.0 ota download". keep clicking the links until you find one that works and make sure you download one which its for an OTA install for 4.7.1 firmware. if its the right one, a white app install screen will pop up with a button you click to download. you cant download the other kind of file thats meant for you to download onto your computer to install that way.

    i have done all that, my problem is when i hit the button on do u want to run the file or save it it goes right back to the same box...do u want to run the file or save it. it is not letting me do either. it cannot be that hard to do. if you could send me the link that you used to get it that would be a good one, no!!! or you can call me 419 3778555 and walk me thru this. thanks.or i can wait for bb to come out w/it.

    Here is the link I used for my Tour... http://bit.ly/1nMFRX

    You must go to this link FROM your blackberry browser.. NOT the computer

    After it has installed.. just click "OK".. then go back to your home screen, press blackberry button to open full icon view, find the instant messaging folder (it has a voice bubble on it) choose blackberry messenger.. this is blackberry messenger 5.0

    to get to the barcode reader, while BBM 5.0 is open, press blackberry button to open menu, choose add contact, then choose scan invitation barcode from another Blackberry...

    hope this helps!

    Actually I found a QR code at a movie theater in Rockville MD. I opened up BBM, and scanned the image and it took me to a site of an upcoming Tim Burton movie...pretty hot (the scanner...the movie is just okay)
