    I have no clue what good it will ever do me. But I don't know how to make
    it work. I hold the phone screen to the barcode ?? ? If yes, for how long.
    Lost my manual, sorry.

    I've used it a few times to see if it actually works. When you focus on the
    barcode, make sure the two red lines are between the actually code. The
    cameras autofocus should pick it up. If you try in on a small flat barcode
    with lots of natural light it should work. How long depends on how long you
    can keep your hand steady. If the standby comes on then its not picking it
    up.

    Only information I've managed at best is the phone number and product number
    for a tv I was thinking of buying. I have no idea why its on a mobile. must
    be a reason why they have included something like this. Maybe Nokias coming
    out with something in the future.

    I have a theory about the barcode scanner.
    have you noticed the competitions where you have to find a code within a
    packet,lets for an example use M&M's, then you have to SMS that code in to
    go in the draw, I can see competitions in the future where you have to scan
    in the barcode of a product as being one of the options for entry. and just
    like in the current completions, you must keep your product packaging to
    collect any major prizes (before someone says "What about just walking down
    the isle of your local supermarket and scanning in their codes")
    as I said, just a theory :-)

    Good theory. Anything's possible. I never thought of the uses outside of
    the U.K

    I mean, if you can buy french fries from a vending machine anythings
    possible

    Its primarily intended for use with 2D QR codes, which can hold phone
    numbers, URLs or messages.
    In asia, they are used on adverts.
