    vCard message through a SMS message to various Nokia phones

    Hi!

    We are making an application which sends vCard messages through SMS-C to phones. Currently we use NBS because we need to get Vcard work in older phones too.

    Current message is below:

    //SCKE2 BEGIN:VCARD
    VERSION:2.1
    N: Esimerkki Erkki
    TEL:+358401234567
    END: VCARD

    So its as simple as possible and we are using only name and tel fields so format is supported in older phones too.

    It works fine in older phones like 6210 and 6310 but phones like 7650 and Communicator doesnt work. 7650 receives vCard message but it won't open and give error message:"Can't open message. Message type unavailable."

    What is general format which will work on every Nokia phone which support vCards? Can we use NBS and plain text or do we need to send Vcard in a hex format?

    Thanks!

    BR,

    Markku

    RE: vCard message through a SMS message to various Nokia phones

    Hi Markku!

    I did some testing and I was able to send the example successfully to Nokia 9210i, Nokia 7650 and Nokia 3650. Could there be something else causing the problem?
