Exchange Vcards by SMS with Blackberry SMS Vcard Add-on
There is a new tool available for exchanging VCards by SMS for BB users, based on 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.
Thanks for information.

Anybody got this floating around???
So does this only work with people who have a Nokia or other blackberry users who also have this installed?
Version 1.3 SMS Vcard Add-on
the application is now at version 1.3 and has further advantages:
1. Blackberry users can exchange Vcard by SMS if both parties have the SMS Vcard Add-on installed. (both with Nokia and Blackberry) - so this the answer is YES at the question above.
2. You can now send Vcards by SMS to recipient numbers even if they are stored in international format.
3. You can choose the phone number to which you send the Vcard and the number you want to send (if there are more than one phone numbers in your chosen contacts).
4. Contacts having names with different language characters are correctly transmitted and received.
All the best.
