    It's likely that the only way you could do something like that
would be to screen-read the image you receive, because - even if you
generated the barcode yourself - there are a variety of different
formats and compression algorithms.  Coming from a cell phone, an
image of an image, would be even more difficult.

    That said, there are a variety of free barcode scanners, and most
now handle 2D barcodes (including QR codes), which then translate the
data into a plain string of data, which could then quite easily be
read and managed by PHP, of course.
