9900 Bold - Very Difficult to scan 15mm x 15mm QR Code

  1. Is there something that can be done with the Blackberry Bold 9900 to help it auto focus/ scan a 15mm x 15mm QR Code (we have tried several paid and unpaid applications with less than acceptable results)
  2. Is there a way to scan with a Blackberry into a text field?
  3. If the 9900 model cannot be modified to work well with our QR Codes how would we go about replacing them with a smart phone that does?

The 9900 does not include the AutoFocus camera.

But you can scan QR codes. Have you tried setting the camera options to the TEXT mode?
