How can I get my Android users to see these options?

Attached is a mockup of the MECARD that my iPhone users are getting after they scan a certain QR code.

My Android users are getting the same info except for the web address. How do I need to code things so my Android users are getting the website?

Here's the image: http://www.myqardboard.com/images/qardboard_mecard.png

Here's my php code: http://chart.apis.google.com/chart?cht=qr&chs=140x140&chl=MECARD:N:<?php echo $last_name; ?>, <?php echo $first_name; ?>;ORG:<?php echo $the_company; ?>;TEL:<?php echo $the_phone; ?>;EMAIL:<?php echo $the_email; ?>; URL:<?php echo $the_url; ?>">

My Android users don't see the "URL." iPhone users do. What do I need to do different?

It could be a typo but there is a space before the " URL:" code in your php code above.  I'd say you're getting lucky with the iphone and it's ignoring the space but the android isn't.
should be:

http://chart.apis.google.com/chart?cht=qr&chs=140x140&chl=MECARD:N:<?php echo $last_name; ?>, <?php echo $first_name; ?>;ORG:<?php echo $the_company; ?>;TEL:<?php echo $the_phone; ?>;EMAIL:<?php echo $the_email; ?>;URL:<?php echo $the_url; ?>

I see it!

I fixed that and I also learned today that not all QR Scanners are created equal. I'm going to reconfigure my page so there's another option for just the URL so I've got all my bases covered.

Thanks!
