On TMobile with UI6.0. Found an issue with inability to share a Vcard from contacts. Go to Contacts, select contact, tap share, select recipient in Messages (Google), opens Message but vcard is not entered into box. Anyone know of a fix?

I figured out how to do it--- no extra steps just simply a long key press.....

Doesn't matter which app you use, google contacts or Samsung....here is the trick;

From contacts you do NOT want to OPEN the contact to the detail screen and then select share---it won't work.

From the main contacts screen, scroll to the contact you want, push and HOLD the contact until the blue (or whatever color on your phone) check mark appears, THEN select share, as vcf, go select the recipient-- and it will work!

I found that this using Google Contacts app does work. It only fails with Samsung contacts app.

Having same issue since latest update.  Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 - Verizon.  I am only able to share as Text.  The.option to export is only for all contacts.  I also noticed when you add a new contact, it won't let you save, forces you to select save to phone or Google.  I have many messed up. Contacts that I can't "edit" fields (addresses or phone numbers, etc.) on either the phone or Google.

How is this marked as resolved if the Samsung app obviously has bugs. Does samsung have no intention of resolving this or should we stop using all samsung apps that come on our phones?

Good question. I've upgraded my phone to 24 ultra with 6.1 and still using Google apps. I tried Sansung contacts and issue still there. So maybe you're right. Use Google apps

Still broken and can't share vcards in Samsung contacts app. How do we alert them to fix this? They must know by now - do they not care?
