    I use a calendar app called Pimlical. It has its own contact list that it uses for various functions. In order to enter a single contact from my Verizon HTC 10's contacts, I need to use the "Share" command. My problem is I cannot find it. Is it me or does it not exist. I feel stupid asking this but I have no other choice.
    Thanks in advance,

    Use the "share contact" from the phone app. Click on your single contact and share it. You can also export all contacts to a vCard, assuming Pimlical can import vCards.

    Unfortunately, I don't have a "Share" command. When I tap the menu icon on an individual contact, the only choices I have are: Refresh, Link, Delete, Send Contact, Set Speed Dial & Edit Tabs. The closet is "Send". That gives me a list of different apps to use to send it but no share. It may be a Verizon or HTC thing, I really don't know. I'll check any other ideas .

    Can "Send Contact" work for you? That exports it to a vCard via Bluetooth. Then maybe you can import it into the ap??

    By the way, the "Share" feature is used to share your own (profile) information. Other contacts need to use the "Send".

    Alternatively, from the Phone App, People tab, Menu->>Manage Contacts->>Export

    Thanks your idea helped a lot. Here's what finally worked. Use the "Send" in contacts and email it to myself. Then use the "Save" command in my email to save the vCard to my File Manager. Finally, use the "Share" command in my File Manager to get it into my Calendar, (Pimlical Android) So thanks for the suggestions, they definitely helped.

    Yes, thanks, if you mean in "Contacts". In my File Manager, Share works with almost everything.
