Beam Your Palm Business Card

BY STANLEY ZAROWIN

Q. I’ve just started using the Palm and I want to be able to beam my business card to other Palm users. Can you help?

A. Sure. Begin by creating an Address Book entry with the information you want on the card and store it. Once that’s done, tap on the lower left Menu button and select Beam Business Card . You’ll get an error message saying you don’t have a card selected, and it will tell you to go to the name you’ve selected for the business card and choose Select Business Card ; that will assign the name you’ve selected.

Caveat: You may have only one personal business card on your Palm at a time.

Then, when you wish to exchange information with someone, point your IR (infrared port—it’s at the top of the device) at the other Palm, and even when your Palm is turned off, hold down the Address Book button for two seconds and it will beam the card.
