    If I want to send a contact in my contact list I can via "share" in the contacts menu. It then attaches a .VCF attachment to my email. I can then send it to anyone via e-mail. I tried this with and iphone buddy and he was able to see and save the file as a contact perfectly. He then tried to send me one, but Gmail says that .VCF files are unsuported. How is it that they designed the phone to send them but not receive them. What am I missing here.

    It could be a "version" issue. FWIW, my phone supports version 2.0 and 3.0. It may be that whatever format/version the iPhone uses for vCard, may not be compatible.
