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.
  1. On the Home screen or in the Instant Messaging folder, click the BlackBerry Messenger icon.
  2. On the contact list screen, press the Menu key.
  3. Click Invite Contact.
  4. Click Invite by scanning a PIN barcode.
  5. Click Continue.
  6. 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.
The person might remain in the Pending category until the person responds to your invitation.
