I have a web site built with the Microsoft mobile controls (.NET v2.0 framework) and I'm tasked with providing a robust "Add to Contacts" feature. Currently I am using the wtai AddPBEntry method. However that only allows for a contact name and phone number.
Does anyone have any experience with other ways to perform this type of feature. Is vcard functionality possible with mobile web applications.
I am searching the web currently but I wanted to create this post early on as my Product Manager will no doubt ask if I have checked/posted with the forums.
Just hoping someone can simply point me in the right direction.
Thanks to all in advance.

I have absolutely no ground for this but the vCard format is
with MIME type "text/x-vcard"
adr:;;Somewhere not in Portland
if u can stream this to the browser maybe they can grab it. I donno, I guess it will depend on the client

Thanks Mauro. That helped. I did find out that I have problems with the Blackberry phones if the file doesn't contain tags that are all upper case. Thanks again for your help.

Have you been able to expose vCard through mobile web site (blackberry browser).
I'm rendering vCard through MDS to blackberry browser ( Content-Type: text/x-vcard), but getting "a problem occured while trying to render the page.

We are doing this a little different. We are creating/storing the .vcf file on the server and simply give the user a link to the file.
