    Bugging me for four years but how is it that doing a contact search will come up empty if you only have a company name?
    For example, I may have a restaurant but search will show up zero results because there is no contact person, only the company.

    i like to help but you forgot the details.

    generally you reap what you sow in life and in contacts always. fill those little boxes out
    if its gmail this is what they say:

    sorry meant on device. From Web not an issue. I think you need something in the contact field itself for search to work.

    You need a better search tool. The default contact search is a little lacking in search, surprisingly for Google.

    Here's a comparison chart that shamelessly plugs our own applications -> Search Feature Comparison for Contact Lookup Pro & Fast | softwyer

    The apps are not free, but Contact Lookup Pro is selling for $0.70 or so, as we're no longer developing it.
