Post Transfer of contact via Bluetooth "business card"

Please Login to Remove!

Is there a way to send a contact business card to my BlackBerry Bold via bluetooth (from another device)? This seems to be a basic feature in most bluetooth enabled phones and it was a breeze doing it between my Sony Ericsson phone and my Nokia phone.

Somehow I can't find this feature at all in my BlackBerry device....

Actually, this works:

Select the Media icon > BB Menu key > Receive via Bluetooth. Make sure you know where it is being saved. Open the VCF file received and you should (hopefully) get a prompt to add to contacts.

You may be able to receive a vcf file but you can't send the card from a BlackBerry.

Default re:

I believe that this software called "DUBB" can do the job... Take a google for the BlackBerry software DUBB..
