Sending vCard contacts via SMS text messages in iPhone

How can I send someone a contact from my address book on an iphone as a vcard?

On my iPod touch I can press the share contact button and send a vcard as an email attachment.

On the iPhone does it give the option to send the vcard attached to an SMS text message?

Or is there a work around which will let me copy and paste the vcard from the email into  a text message?

    Great thanks Asif. What version of iOS added that feature?

    IOS added support for MMS with version 3.0. That is when this feature was enabled.
