Add a contact by scanning a barcode
When you add a contact by scanning a barcode, the person might need to accept your invitation before the person is added to your BlackBerry® Messenger contact list.
Before you begin: To perform this task, your BlackBerry® device must have a camera. You must have BlackBerry Device Software 4.6 or later on your device to receive a success beep.
- On the Home screen or in the Instant Messaging folder, click the BlackBerry Messenger icon.
- On the contact list screen, press the Menu key.
- Click Invite Contact.
- Click Invite by scanning a PIN barcode.
- Click Continue.
- Hold your device so that all four corners of the barcode appear on your device screen. Continue to hold the device until you hear the success beep.
