    Has anyone successfully been able to scan a qr code with this phone? I've tried several different apps with no success.

    Yes. It's a bit of a pain because the cam has no autofocus. You won't be able to scan barcodes but you can scan qr codes. I use QR Code Reader.

    I thought it was just me who was being a dumbass and couldn't get it to work, I been having the same problem. I'll give QR Code Reader a try as stated above and hope it works.

    That's what I get for letting my husband pick the phones. He took the good one.

    I know this sounds crazy but it worked for my ascend...

    Get a dollar store pocket magnifying glass. Use it to change the focal point of your phone by holding it in front of the camera while scanning codes.

    Ghetto, I know, but without autofocus its your only 100% option.

    Sounds kind of clumsy. I have a hard enough time trying to hold the phone steady already.

    Lol. It worked for me pretty easy, but I have steady hands.
