Forward Contact Using FreeContact
You can download FreeContact for free via direct iTunes link here.
You probably heard of Clippy. Clippy is great hack for iPhone that adds the Copy & Paste capability. The latest version of Clippy lets you easily copy & paste any contact information. Later, you can paste it back to text message or email and send it to your friend or co-workers. Clippy is available on Cydia and you can download it for free. Once you have Clippy installed, simply tap and hold on the contact number you want to copy, Clippy will then pop-up a context menu. Select “Copy” to copy the number. Then start up the text application and paste the contact number into the text message. Check out my post here on how to use and install Clippy.
BiteSMS is a premium SMS application available from Cydia. This SMS application provides additional features (e.g. forward SMS and landscape typing) over the default SMS application comes with iPhone. It also lets you embed contact information in a text message very easily.
Simply drag your finger from left to right in the text area, BiteSMS will show an option to add a contact. By tapping on the “Add Contact” option, the application brings you to contact list and you can choose the desired contact to put into the text message. It’s simple and convenient.
BiteSMS is a featured application on Cydia. But one downside is it’s not a free application.
Launch Cydia > Select “Sections” at haptic menu > Select “Messaging” category > and select “biteSMS” or you can tap “Search” in Cydia and type “biteSMS” > Select “install” button at the right top and confirm it to install.
Here is the bonus tip but it will not work until the next version of iPhone. Soon when iPhone 3.0 debuts this summer, you do not need to rely on any external application to forward a contact. This feature will come as a default one and build into the Contact. You’ll see a “Share Contact” button in every contact in the address book. Simply tap on that button and share the contact with others as vCard.
