SMS is an extremely limited message format (160 chars, simple text only), and it does not support attachments. You can use a product like REXconnect (on Handango) to send a contact via SMS as simple text.

Yes, i know. I use rexconnect to send some kind of vcard, but it is not really a card. The receiver does not have the posibility to save the contact directly to address book, it just send a text message with all information for the contact. Also RexConnect does not allow reading vcards send from other phones to BB.

I do not know if what Nokia or Sony Ericsson does is really send a vcard. From what i see in BB, they send some kind of information incapsulated in the text of the sms (with labels and values) like

Begin:VCARD
Name:John Smith
...
END:VCARD

And probably the phone, reads this kind of message as an business card and allow it to save to address book.

I was thinking that there are softwares that can do what other phones (Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Windows etc) do regading sending bussiness cards.

Thank you for your answer!
