    There is a new bug that has been revealed in iMessage. The bug allows you to disable the anyone's iMessage by sending them a particular vCard. The vCard is filled with lines of code. There are 14,381 lines of code to be exact. Upon opening the vCard iMessage freaks out due to the shear volume of code. The app then crashes. Every time you try to open iMessages after opening the card it will crash until your phone has been factory reset. There is one link that you can click to resolve the issue without a factory reset, but it only works on some phones. Since the vCard is just a means of sharing contact information it would only make sense for Apple to limit the amount of information that can be stored on the vCard. This would eliminate the problem altogether.
