Hi,
I want to check if your product fit the needs of my company.
We want to send contact person details - name and phone number to the cellular device address book.

Is it possible via sms with your product??

Thank you

Billie

Hi Billie,

This is possible ... but can be problematic because not all devices support the same formats for address book contacts.

What you want to do is send a "vCard". The NowSMS web interface has a "Send WAP vCard" option which sends out a contact in a format that is recognised by Nokia phones, and some phones from other manufacturers.

But not all phones support this.

You can send a URL pointing to a vCard for phones that have browsing capability.

And some phones (especially SonyEricsson) support vCard data appearing in a standard text message.

If you search this forum on a keyword of vCard, then you can find some more information.

But unfortunately, because different mobiles require you to use different formats, it is probably not practical for you to deploy such a solution.
