    BBM 5 creates a unique barcode that you can "scan" with your camera to add people.

    There are a few applications for it. You can do a screen shot and post it on the web. You can scan off one BlackBerry to another. You can create a group list, such as in a corporation, and have it available to everyone. I'm sure there are other ways to use it, besides those.

    Did you go into BBM under menu>add contact; and then scroll to where it says "scan barcode from another blackberry"?

    Once you've done all that you just point it at a barcode and it should capture and add that person.

    Try filling up your screen with the image and then slowly move out away. There is a little trick to getting it to capture IMO

    Dumb question, but where do I find my phone's barcode so that someone else can scan it into their BB?

    Hey Dave! If you go to your profile, and scroll down, you'll find it. Only on BBM5 though.






    I find it hard to believe someone can find CrackBerry using Google,
    yet couldn't find their "heat seeking moisture missile" in a speedo once they get here.
