Send Contact Info

Sorry for the dumb question, but I couldn't find any answers in the forums.  How do you send information from your contact list to another person?  Here's the issue - I was at lunch with a co-worker and she said, do you have Antia's contact info?  Sure I do was my reply. She asked me to send it to her and I have no idea how to do that.  Can I send her a txt with the contact info in it or how do I send it to her?  She was using a Palm if that makes a difference.  Also is there a way I can send my personal business card or contact information?

Re: Send Contact Info

The Palm OS allows you to beam contact info from one device to another using infrared built into most of their phones, so the person you were with is used to being able to do this.  Blackberry's cannot.  However, you should be backing up your data on a computer or server.  If you use an Outlook interface you can email a vcard from your desktop.  This will send the info without having to retype.

Re: Send Contact Info

OK, I understand that and thank you, but there is no way I can send it from my Blackberry to her email while were sitting together?

Re: Send Contact Info

When you compose an email, simply Click the Menu button (button to the LEFT of the trackball) or the Scrollwheel, and select Attach Address.  This will bring you to your BlackBerry's Address Book to select the contact info you want to send.

 

If the email is received on a BlackBerry, the attachment can be viewed and then added to the Recipient's Address Book.  The attachment is sent in the fairly universal .VCF format, so most people should be able to open the attachment and/or save it into most PIM applications.
