Currently, sending contact information via SMS seems to require manual copy-paste of separate lines from People to Messages, and additionally the "edit" is required in People to get the lines copied.

Would be nice if this was easier, for example option in People/Messages coded to read Name, Phone(s) and Email(s) from a vcard and automatically paste these into Messages app in plain text. As answers, I hope to see ideas how this would work in the most intuitive way, both starting the sharing via Messages (adding contact info) or People (send info as text message)

Note: Currently People > contact > Share > Bluetooth / MMS / Email are options to send a vcf (vcard) file
