BlackBerry App World (the app itself) has a QR code reader built in.
Use that instead of the BBM app.

They are intended to connect to a web site or display other information decodable. What do you intend to do with them.

Default Re: QR codes

Generally not because they must point to something the reader must be able to either go to or read. I do have some with my email address on web sites i manage so users can contact me. I guess with a little imagination you could use them for just about anything.

Play around and have fun.
