Default Main Google Search Bar not picking up all my contacts?

When I do a search using the main search bar, many of my contacts will not show up. Most of them do, usually older contacts, but it seems that newer contacts don't show, even when I hit "search phone". Contacts is checked in the search list in settings. I sync my contacts regularly. Anyone have any ideas on what could cause this problem? Phone is rooted since I got it nearly a year ago, but this problem seems to have gotten worse lately.

Thank you for your post.

There are currently 28 different models of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and over 2,000 different stock Samsung firmware versions, worldwide, covering 5 different Android platforms, Android 4.2.2, Android 4.3, Android 4.4.2, Android 4.4.3 and Android 4.4.4. Not all issues will affect all models or firmware releases and your answers to the following questions will help in the forum's answers to your specific query.

#1 Could you post your Model number and Android version...

To locate these, go to...

Settings > More > About device > Model number and Android version

This will give you the model of Samsung Galaxy S4 that you have and which Android version you are on.


#2. Your current Firmware, (not just Baseband), version .

To locate your current firmware version, go to the stock, Samsung, dial pad and type in...

*#1234#

This will give you your, "Version", details in full, usually 3 lines of information, AP: CP: CSC:, which may all be relevant.

*** If code *#1234# has been disabled on your firmware, you can download and install, free from the Play Store, Phone Info and it will give you, under Firmware Info... PDA, Baseband, CSC, versions.


#3. Also helpful would be your carrier, (service provider), location, (UK, India, Russia, USA, etc: ), and if your phone is rooted or not and running a custom ROM, (give details).


Thanks. The above helps us to help you and hopefully someone will be able to reply to you shortly.

(Tip: You can go to the green bar at the top of this forum and click on, "User CP", which will take you to your User Control Panel and then select, "Edit your details", under the heading, "Your profile", on the left hand side. Here you can fill in your model and firmware under, "Current devices", in, "Additional Information". This ensures that your device details are shown under your user name on the left, in every post you make. You can update this as often as you like and will help other users immediately identify your current phone and firmware details.)

Verizon Galaxy S4 SCH-I545
Android version 4.2.2
Hardware Version I545.06
Baseband I545VRUAME7
Kernel Version 3.4.0-690088
Rooted running "BoneStockROM v1.1.4"
USA

The issue seems to have gotten worse in the past few months, though I haven't changed anything on the phone. Now, if I edit a contact, the edited information doesn't show up in the search bar, only if I open the contact. For instance, I had an old contact called "Winslow Rental" that I hadn't used for years. At some point the "rental" part was lost, so when I searched it it only showed "winslow". I recently edited the contact to read winslow rental, but when I type "winslow" in the search bar, it still shows up the old way, even though if I goto contacts and search it, it shows "Winslow Rental".

Any ideas?
