Hi all,

If someone sends you a barcode, is it possible to read it on your phone itself? I could always copy onto my computer, email it to myself and then print if off and use the barcode scanner app but that seems a bit dumb? I thought the barcode app might be able to open a file off the phone but don't see that option.

Barcode Scanner doesn't seem to have this ability, though Google Goggles will scan from file.  You can also send the file directly to goggles via the gallery (and presumably the SMS/MMS interface).
