Re: scanning with a BB9670?

Hi vansicklemichael,


Are you using a specific application to scan the bar codes?  Natively, the BlackBerry® smartphone will only scan barcodes using BBM™ and BlackBerry App World™.  You can test the barcode scanner by launching BBM™, pressing the menu key and choosing Scan BBM Group Barcode.  If the barcode is for a website, it will prompt you to launch it.
