    Is it possible to search contacts on ANY text in the contact record, or does this only work with the name field? I have a lot of contacts where the name is blank, but the company (e.g., Amtrak, Marriott) or there may be a contact where I know the company name, but not the name of the person in the record. This is also a problem when someone calls me and the caller ID does not match the number to a record in my People list; the 'recent call' list simply shows 'unknown' which is not very helpful.

    Why can't it search contact?

    I could not agree more.......

    I am a DROID newbie, I had perfect STORM until now.
    Not so bad DROID. May be I am missing something but
    I explored the entire phone in its entirety and could not
    find a way to search entire contact.

    I have about 1000 contacts and I put specific words in the
    contact NOTES so that I can easily search and find the
    contacts with related words.

    This technique worked for me starting from Windows CE (few generations),
    Plam (few generations), BB......

    Now, this is so frustrating that I can not find my contacts
    on this device by words in the notes. Forget about notes,
    it can't even find contacts if I put first name as follows and
    try to search "Lisa" the later one:

    Greg/Lisa

    I am a PR guy and can not live without this
    feature.

    I will have to return this device if it can not do the basic
    search (which is my basic requirement).

    Please help!!! I just refuse to believe that the such
    smart guys at Android does not have support for
    this and there must be something I am missing.

    Cry,cry,cry!

    I can't believe there is not yet a fix for searching by company name... this is a big disappointment and a huge problem. I have over 1600 contacts and there is no way I can remember all the names of people at a given company. This was a basic feature in my Blackberry Curve and HTC / ATT Tilt.
