to share individual contacts with QR Code between two devices, a slim (700kb) qrcode app will make this possible:

Despite its ability to scan qrcodes, it will add the ability to generate a vcard QR Code from the Contacts share menu, and will also detect a vCard text after scanning one to be imported into Contacts
