    Send contact via SMS

    Advertisement



    Hi, just arrived in Blackberry world so bear with me. Got a nice new pearl and I'm loving it but there is one crippling issue which makes me think I may have to send it back to the shop:-
    How can I send a contact from my address book to another person using SMS and NOT email. I usually have to do this 2 or 3 times a day and I cannot figure out any way at all of doing it. Like I said I've only had the handset for a couple of days but if no-one can tell me how to do this relatively simple task on such a sophisticated machine then it's all over for me and RIM.
    I don't care how complicated the process is as long as it can be done.
    Any help gratefully recieved.

    Welcome to the Stacks Pearl Handle. The only way I've found to send an address other than via email is via MMS (there is an option in the menu to attach an address).

    I'm not sure if that helps.

    Thanks, I've just had my MMS service activated so in 24hrs I'll know whether your suggestion works for me.
    Many thanks, I'll let you know

    Hi again, I've just noticed that you are talking about addresses. I primarily need to send peoples phone numbers to each other. Does MMS send numbers as well as addresses??

    im pretty sure that it attaches the entire 'vcard'...
    mms would be a multi-media message - anything sent to a phone number, from a phone number, with some sort of media or attachment.
    sms is text only. you would have to type the phone number in the body of the message
    for mms, while in your message app, click menu then choose compose mms

    I am pretty sure the BlackBerry just attaches a .dat file that contains the address. I got full access using the vCardMaster
