Patch Contacts Send All via Email

Send all via email.png

Introduction

This patch allows you to create a vCard file containing all your contacts, and then attach that file to an e-mail. WebOS does not offer a built-in way to export your contacts, so this seems to be the next best thing.

If you only get one contact when you import the vCard file, you can either import it to Google or Hotmail and then export your contacts from there, or you can use a vCard splitter such as vCardOrganizer which will let you split the big vCard file into individual files for each contact.
