Until now I used a PALM V to manage my contacts for more than 10 Years. The Palm had the feature, that I can search words within the note field of all contacts. This was very useful, because I stored different catagory´s in the contact note (product_a product_b). And If I search "product_a" I get a result of all contacts, that bougth product_a.



I tryed this with an Iphone 4 on IOS 5. It doesn´t work. I get an empty search result.


I synchronized my iphone contacts with iclouds. In Iclouds I can make a fulltext search within note field and I get a correct search result


In the discussions here I found an similar entry for IOS 4. The people have the same problem. Is it realy true, that Appple dosen´t support this? In my oppinion this is a bug.


Do you know, how we can report this bug to apple development people? Does somebody knows an app, that can search within the contact note?





iPhone 4, iOS 5.0.1
