Put away does not include a names option. Just notepad.

I have only transferred vCards via Bluetooth using Blunt and IC/VC.
Naturally, that's it's own set of hoops to jump through.

It's good that you have IC/VC installed as that's required to put away
vCard & iCal/vCal files. When you say it says there is no application
installed to view the attachment, are you clicking on it in In/Out to open
it? If so, you'll want to check the checkbox next to it instead and select
"Put Away" from the little tag menu in the button bar.

For you to be able to view it in In/Out, someone would need to write a
Stationary for vCards.

I hope that helps,
