The iPhone allows users to download applications to make tasks and functions more convenient. One of those apps, Beam It!, allows a user to send his or another person's contact information over their iPhone's Bluetooth connection. This eliminates the need to e-mail, text or copy down an individual's contact information.

    Open the Beam It! app on both devices. You will be prompted to select the contact information you wish to send. If you initially select the wrong information, click the "i" icon in the lower right corner of the "My Name Is" bubble to change it.

    Touch the recipient's name listed under "Device's nearby." Your iPhone will make a connection with the other iPhone. After the connection has been made, the contact information will automatically be sent. Instruct the other user to scroll down to access the options to save the contact information to their iPhone.
