I realize that this topic has been discussed in several underlying threads however it is not yet clear to me how exactly to go about this. I read parts of the smart messaging FAQ and I do understand how to encode a textual message however there are several questions. The most important ones however are...
1) Assuming there is no bluetooth, infrared, or cable -- can I embed the VCard inside an SMS message and send it out?
2) Are there easy ways of programmatically sending SMS messages to phones belonging to all different carriers? For example, to send an email to a verizon phone with the phone number xxxyyyzzzz you send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
3) Any reading materials would be appreciated too... if not straight forward answers
