    No you can add them using their PIN or e-mail address also. Most of my contacts I added by PIN, only one was added by barcode.

    Go to 'add contact' in the BBM menu to see the available options listed there.

    I ment is there any other way to scan a barcode as in copy n paste or does it have to be by taking a picture of the barcode? As a lot of people post barcodes for groups etc but can't seem to add them by phone.

    If you are running BBM 5 you can invite a contact by scanning their barcode. Go to the main BBM screen and choose <Menu> --Invite contact -- Invite by scanning pin barcode. That will turn on the camera and all you have to do is focus it on the barcode in question until it registers.

    Exactly what Tiassa said. You scan the barcode, you don't have to take a picture of it. There are apps for scanning barcodes for other things, because they appear almost everywhere for anything, not just BBM.

    If you are on a website (using your blackberry browser) with a barcode you can click on it to add people or groups.
