How do I send a contact through text?

Answered by John Hunt

To send a contact through text, you can follow these steps:

1. Open the Messages app on your mobile device.
2. Open the chat or conversation where you want to send the contact.
3. Tap and hold on a message within the chat to reveal additional options.
4. From the options that appear, tap on “More.” This will open a menu with additional actions.
5. Look for the option labeled “Forward” and tap on it. This will allow you to forward the selected message or contact to another person.
6. A list of contacts will appear. Choose the contact to whom you want to send the contact.
7. Once you have selected the contact, tap on the “Send” button to forward the message or contact to that person.

It’s worth noting that the specific steps may vary slightly depending on the messaging app and the operating system of your device. However, the general process should be similar across most platforms.

When sending a contact through text, you can choose whether to forward a single message that includes the contact details or to separately forward the contact information alone. This can depend on the messaging app and the preferences of the recipient.

In my personal experience, I often find it useful to send contacts through text when someone asks for a person’s phone number or email address. It’s a quick and convenient way to share contact information without the need to manually type it out or search for it in your contacts list.

Sending a contact through text is a straightforward process that allows you to easily share contact details with others. By following the steps outlined above, you can forward a contact to a new recipient within a chat or conversation in your messaging app.
