It's not a "bug"--that's the way the search has always worked in Contacts. I was a Palm then BB user before iPhone 4 and found this very limiting and annoying, too. So I downloaded the App "Super Search" which does a broader search in Contacts. Very nice. You may wan to try it.

Hello Thanks Jolieteddie
I downloaded the app. I can search with this "free app" everywhere in the internet, but not in my contacts. Do I make anything wrong or do I have the wrong app?. I searched for "super search" and I found 1 match.

Search for "contacts super search" to find the App by WildFone in the Apple App Store.

I agree, Spotlight search is as good as useless when it comes to searching contacts but Super Search works a treat.
