So here is my serious problem with iCloud and indeed the entire iPhone/iPad operating system: the search function in contacts is practically useless. As far as I can tell, it covers only the contact name and company name. No city, no other location information, no phone numbers, e-mail addresses, and most egregiously, no notes. This is ridiculous. If one remembered the name or company name, one could go directly to the contact. One would not need to search for a name that you don't remember just then, but for whom you made a point of entering a note (such as where you met the person) that would help you find the individual.Originally Posted by twerppoet
The Palm operating system got this right more than 10 years ago. How can it not be obvious in the Apple world? Am I missing something?
Now we leave all our contacts to the iCloud and delete the duplicate entries from Outlook, which does search across all fields, including cities and notes. What is the point of having a notes function if they are not searchable?
Any assistance would be most welcome. But I have not been able to solve this.
