    Hi,

    Someone sent me a vCard by SMS.. I can see it in my messages, and when I click on it, it says "Imported".. But it doesn't get saved in the contacts...
    The only way I can retrieve the number is by going to forward the sms and copy the number out... :(

    What an annoyance!!

    Is this happening to you guys too..?

    I had that and googled the issue and apparently vcards are just not compatible with the Desire and a lot of other smartphones. I think there is an app you can get, but it's not free :mad:

    Thanks Freddie, but I don't think that's the explanation. It's probably just a bug.
    The Desire does support vCards, else it wouldn't show the vCard in the received sms and it wouldn't say "Imported"...
    IMO it also stores the contacts backup onto the SD card as a vCard.
