I dont think that saving the all the field data in one vcard string is
a good idea.

How about searching my contacts that live on some city, some info that
is in this vcard string?

It isnt good to add a field to each contact info that is available...

I think that can be created 2 tables, one with the contact info type
and one that has an 1-n relationship between the contacts table and
tis contact info type table, where u can put the info.

Then u can search freely withouth performance issues and store and
extends all the contact info without having too many empty fields.
