Default How to send contact?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, guys. Is it possible to send contacts via sms like any other phone? I can't find such function, so when I need to send a contact to somebody from my address book, I need to copy the phone than to paste it in the sms and type the name by hand.Is it some easiest way to do this? Thanks.

I don't see any way to attach an address book contact via SMS, but it is an option when composing a MMS message.

It's also an option for BB Messenger. It's probably because it sends a .vcf file and SMS doesn't support file transfer

Hi from a newb

What implications does this have ? just a cost issue ? if I send an MMS to a friend with a normal phone and attach a contact how does he handle it ?

A coleague at a trade expo just sent me an SMS with VCard data in it.... is it possible for me to save that into a new contact ? or do I have to copy it down and enter it by hand ?

Tks.
