  1. On the Share contact via list of apps, how does one add or edit that list? I use another Messaging app (Handscent) that doesn't show up in the list. Thanks, Rod

    1. Hi Rodswartz,
      Thanks for coming.
      I've just duplicated your issue, seems the messaging app allowed in the share contact via list apps is the stock Messaging app only. I've tried to disable the Stock Messaging app, this will also remove the messaging option from the share contact via list app. I've tried to set the Handcent as the default, but still no luck. The possible way to share contact using Handcent is through the app itself. Create new message using Handcent and then attach the contact you wish to share from there, but you're not allowed to multiple select when attaching the contact so you need to attach the contact one by one.
      Hope this helps :)
