How to export Contact using the vCard and SMS to the non-iPhone user

Hello

so I just tried to share a contact, using Messages, from another phone (non-iPhone) and I expect Messages to send a vCard using SMS to other mobile phone, but instead the iPhone said: "failed to send Message."  Text messages normal sending very well (with the Green bubbles).

I followed the 7 steps listed at this link: http://www.iphoneheat.com/2013/01/how-to-send-contact-card-vcard-from-iphone-ipa d-ipod-touch /, but it did not work.

      1. Launch the Contacts application from the home screen of your iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
      2. Search for the contact you want to share and tap the name;
      3. When you contact details, scroll to the bottom and press the button Share contact ;
      4. Choose the option Message ;
      5. The vCard contact will be automatically inserted into an empty message.
      6. Now simply select the recipient you want to send the contact card to the field to the message.
      7. Click on send. That's all!

If anyone knows how it's supposed to be done with the latest iOS - to send contact information to another phone (non-iphone) by SMS?

Well, I figured that out, and it relates to this discussion of the Apple forum:

Why should I mobile data market to send/receive MMS?

According to my cellular provider (Fido, Canada), the decision to send vCards and picture Messages to cellular data radio was conducted by mobile phone manufacturers (Apple, Samsung, etc.), but it's probably a standard now that cellular providers design their networks (although I could believe the reverse had happened).

Fortunately, even if I use the connection 'data' Fido that they don't consider it as data, but as the e-mail... which is good for my boyfriend who is also using Fido, because is not a data plan but can now receive vCards (and picture messages) via MMS when it allows its cellular data (radio).

But the real question is why was decided to send a business card on the data network and not on the SMS network, as it is just text (such as a comma-delimited file).  And if the vCard happened to contain non-text byte then why they wouldn't just UUENCODE (or MIME) the vCard if there no text fields so that it could be sent via SMS?

Oh, wait... Search..., Wikipedia watch looks like what a card and its ALL TEXT: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VCard#vCard_4.0

And very little text too.

If anyone knows why Apple does not send vCards via SMS (or why LG/Samsung either)?

Why I care, well of curiosity, of course, but also because if we could do more over the cellular transmitter voice/sms, so maybe we could turn cellular data more often, which would save on energy consumption (I guess), reduce the heat our phones get and to reduce our exposure to the EM radiation have some of the disabled (c.f. Bluetooth WiFi wireless transmitters (, data transmitters and cell phones cellular voice/sms).

Let's hope that someone out there knows.

Thank you.

P.S. I also understood why so many of my friends use Whatsapp and WiFi to send text messages instead of using the network of suppliers of cells, the standard e-mail application in Android (and iOS when you message for a non-Apple device) will not send messages (SMS/MMS) via WiFi.

  • How to export PDFS using named preset PDF

    I got job pages PDF export (with kPDFExportCmdBoss), but I do not see how to export by using one of the named PDF presets (for example PDF / X - 1a: 2001).

    I want to be able to set up a custom named PDF export preset and then just export a PDF file using this preset, so that if the PDF output needs different settings at some point in the future, this can be done by simply changing the named preset.

    All the tips to find out if this is possible, and if so, how best to do so, will be much appreciated.

    An excerpt from my current code:

    get the export command
    InterfacePtr < ICommand > pdfExportCmd(CmdUtils::CreateCommand(kPDFExportCmdBoss));)

    get the interface of prefs for export
    IPDFExportPrefs InterfacePtr < IPDFExportPrefs > (pdfExportCmd, IID_IPDFEXPORTPREFS);

    Find the pages to export interface
    IOutputPages InterfacePtr < IOutputPages > (pdfExportCmd, IID_IOUTPUTPAGES);

    get the interface of output file
    IOutputFileData InterfacePtr < ISysFileData > (pdfExportCmd, IID_ISYSFILEDATA);

    get the UID page
    PageUID UID = iPageList-> GetNthPageUID(fromPage-1); zero for the first page

    set the outputfile
    iOutputFileData-> Set (pageFile);

    set the page
    iOutputPages-> AppendOutputPageUIDRef (UIDRef (db, pageUID));

    Set the preset in preferences
    / * This is the bit I don't see how * /.

    Run the command
    If (CmdUtils::ProcessCommand (pdfExportCmd)! = kSuccess) {}
    ASSERT_FAIL ("kPDFExportCmdBoss failed");
    break;
    }

    Your English is very good.

    You simply need to activate Windows in the laptop by phone call at a command prompt, type slui 4.

    You * must * also to remove Windows from your desktop computer, but if it is to wait a few moments, it shouldn't be a problem.

    Specifically, the location of my tools, palettes and so on.

    I created my work space and save - and this is my window > Workspace menu but it's not here the export option.

    Other instructions I found (for CS6) supposed to go into file > presets > menu manage - but that has only brushes, shades, etc. - no option I can find for the workspace layout.

    PC instructions, please. Feel free to include Mac, if they are different, so the next person can find a complete solution.

    I guess you're hurting understand the definition of Client instant, there isn't a tool or application or tool GUI as a sql developer or another that you can start using. It's just client installed with the minimum characteristics
    If you want to use the right application tool install sql developer in your instant client or simply running sqlplus
