How to Add / Invite friend in BBM using Barcode

Maybe some of you are Blackberry users, haven't known how to add or  invite BBM (Blackberry Messenger) contact  using PIN Barcode, without having to give/mention the PIN number. (PIN is Personal Identification Number, every blackberry device has it,  written in  eight characters in hexa decimal format).

Invite using PIN Barcode, the 1st blackberry device showing its Pin Barcode, and the 2nd blackberry device will scan that  barcode using its camera, and automatically will add the contact.

Another difference if invite/add contact  using  PIN barcode is :  friend directly added to the contact list without notice, so there is no notification for you whether  will be accepted or rejected. because it will be automatically accepted.

I have Toshiba laptop  Portege R500, for about 2 years it was Ok and no problem happen. But after 2 years   it had a problem, when turned power on, it took a long time in BIOS ( about 5 minutes) before loading the operating system (Windows).

Now the problem is solved. Cause is error in DVD Drive, I have not decided to look for the new DVD drive, i did to disconnect the DVD from the laptop,  it doesn't matter for me without the CD/DVD R-RW drive.
