One of the popular questions that I have been asked is how you can share contact with others on iPhone.
Three months ago, I have posted 3 great ways to forward a contact to your friends or co-workers. They should work for you but they’re not perfect. And, the solutions depend on 3rd party applications.
With the release of iPhone 3.0, Apple finally built this feature into iPhone and allows you to share contacts with others via MMS (not available for all carriers) or email natively.
To share a contact on iPhone 3.0, simply view your contact and you’ll see a new button called “Share contact”. Tap on it and select MMS/Email to send out the contact. (For those without MMS enabled, you’ll not be prompted with the option and your contact will be sent out via email)
The contact is delivered in a standard vCard format. When you or your friend receive an email with vCard attached, simply tap on the attachment and you can add the contact.
I’ll continue to post other iPhone tips about iPhone 3.0 OS. So, stay tuned.
