Can you elaborate on this?  Where are your contacts at that you want to scan them in to the tour?

The menu key will open the menu with the "Scan Group Barcode" or go into My Profile and you can see your Barcode there. Is that what you are looking for?

Hi,

I have had a few coworkers complain of the same thing.  After they gave me their Blackberry devices to see if I could fix the problem, I noted each one of them were not running the 5.0 version of Blackberry Messenger.  Make sure you are running the latest version.  You can download it from Blackberry App World or straight from Blackberry's web site.  You can check which version you are running by going to Options>Advanced Options>Applications.
