    I just got the phone yesterday, and realized I can send contacts via SMS! I was using the hero before and you could easily do it via vcard.

    For example, I want to send Mr Jones a contact number of a client, I can easily SMS him through contacts the client's contact numbers(emails and whatnots).

    However, this feature seems lacking on the Milestone. You can attach just about everything else except a person's contacts!

    Did I overlook something here? Or it just doesn't come with it?

    I tried the same thing on my Eris..i assumed the reader couldn't see the vCard on her phone, but it turns out she never even got it. Are you trying it via Messages or HandcentSMS?

    Actually, I can't even find the option to send a vcard, thats what I really meant. I had that option when I had my Hero.

    As for the issue of not being able to recieve it, I've experienced that on my HTC Hero. I think its really an Android issue.

    Open a contact, hit menu, hit share. That will compose an SMS with .vcf file attached. I haven't tried it, but that's how it is supposed to work.
