VCards, as .vcf files are known, are virtual business cards. The files contain basic contact info, such as a person's name, address, phone number and e-mail address; sometimes, they even include the person's picture. After you create a vCard, you can send a copy to anybody who needs to be able to get in touch with you. Often, the transfer happens via e-mail, and many e-mail programs can read vCards. If you aren't in your e-mail client, however, you can use the built-in Windows Contacts program to open a .vcf file.
