    I'm running the latest Bold software from ATT with the official BBM 5 application. It seems to lockup when I scan a barcode. I'll scan the code, I hear the "beep", then it goes to a white screen. I'm scanning the barcode from the blog on the home page for CrackBerry.com.

    Also, I've noticed since the new BBM was installed, I've got "Group Calendar" running if you go to the "task manager". What is that??

    I have the curve 8330, and it will not let me scan certain barcodes?? I scanned Crackberry barcode and it worked fine, once i send my barcode out, or try to scan someone elses using 8330, it just doesnt scan. It stays in camera mode and nothing happens. Anyone else having this issue??

    I reinstalled BBM 5.0, still no luck

    I have no idea what is wrong. I've been able to scan any barcode except yours. I tried to scan yours, and nothing happened.

    Are people able to add you as a contact using your PIN? If you don't want to publish your PIN, send me a PM, and I'll see if I can add you.

    I have the same problem with you.

    Im on an AT&T Bold Unlocked, Unbranded.

    My barcode is attached below.

    No body can scan it.

    Tried deleting and reinstalling BBM 5.0, still no luck.

    I can scan everyone elses, except yours and rpun13's.

    I tried to display your barcode and I got an error message in the window on my PC after I clicked on the thumbnail.

    I can see rpun13's barcode, but I can't scan it. I can't even see yours.
