Indeed. Problem is, its only useful if the person you are adding is right next to you
Not entirely so. The post above yours, by "kappasolo", provides a perfect alternative. I clicked on the thumbnail picture, enlarging it, and was able to add a new contact from the published image just by pointing my 8900 at the image! It came up as "Tommy", along with a PIN number... No other details filled in, but it appears that the process works fine right off a computer monitor image of your "bar code"...

...and of course this means that you can post it on your website, on your Facebook homepage, at your BlackberryForums avatar, and send it to somebody in an email.... I imagine you could wind up with a zillion anonymous BBM "buddies" in record time this way...
Be water my friend...
