Default Exchange Vcards by SMS with Blackberry SMS Vcard Add-on

Please Login to Remove!


There is a new tool available for exchanging VCards by SMS for BB users using the same protocol as Nokia. A friend of mine developed it, I used it and I think it's a useful tool. Here are some info for those interested in it:

SMS VCard Add-on enables interoperability with Nokia and you can save on the Blackberry all VCards received in SMS and send contacts using SMS. Due to SMS size restriction only name, phone and email are sent by SMS.

The "SMS VCard Add-on" is the most simple application (and useful) that fits the existing Blackberry menus and operates with minimal intrusion and overhead.

The app. is available for $1.99 on mobihand store and its channels.

Any input on the app. is welcome.

Thumbs down

This does not appear to work on Tour (OS v4.7.1.53, VZW). The app appears to send out an SMS message, but it never shows up in the sent messages list or arrives on the distant end.

It is normal that the message does not show up in sent messages list as it is an encoded application message not sent by the default SMS phone application.
The problem with the message never arriving at the distant end could be because of the carrier or recipient phone blocking SMS, other than standard ones.
I have seen it happen even with Nokia phones when sending contacts.
