    Wish there was a way to share someones info like there cell phone numbers easier. As it is right now, if someone txts u "hey can u give me Debras number"? You would have to go to her contacts, memorize it then go to your preferred messenging app the reply with the number there.

    Anybody figured a easier way?

    Edit the contact and copy the phone number as text and paste it into your SMS.

    Thats a good idea...guess I wish the "share" option was available to handcent or messenger if choice. It gives option to share gmail which i feel is worthless

    I flat out don't give any numbers to anyone... So I've never had this need. But it would be cool to just copy all contact info

    Hoccer might be able to do this...if not I'm pretty sure you can do this over bluetooth, normal phones can.

    The sendcontact app is a dollar. The contact send app is free but not that good
