    When using the barcode scanner app, my camera continues to focus and unfocus over and over, making scanning difficult. Anyone else have this?

    I did have this problem. I think it's an issue with the camera software. It is supposed to be fixed in the 12/11/09 update. Lets hope because it's pretty useless right now.

    I found that you really have to play with the distance you hold the camera to the barcode. At first it was too close and I was trying to fit the whole barcode within the rectangle. Then I started holding it a bit farther out and it would get the barcode within seconds.

    Set your screen brightness to low, and set the camera to action. These help quite a bit, but it still is not perfect.
