    I keep notes on many of my contact and I would like o be able to recall a contact by a search that would include the notes. For example, lets say I get to talking to someone e at the airport. We get to talking and find he is big into ATV's. He's looking for a riding partner so he tells me to give him a call the next time I go. I store his name as Bob and in the notes I put ATV. later I want to look him up but only remember the ATV part. As far as I can tell the search doesn't include the notes. Is there a way to do that.

    Power Search (free app in Marketplace) does that. I just tested it.

    Aurora search had a higher rating, so I tried that and it works perfect. So, fast, too.

    there is also contacts search+. it's $0.99 but so far i like it better than aurora because the results come up right away (vs having to select 'more' > 'aurora') and it doesn't seem to slow down as much for me.

    Contact search + is exactly what I was looking for. You say you don't have to select "more", then "contact search+" in the search results... Im a little confused on this because I do have to do exactly that. It doesn't bother me though, it's not much of a hastle for what it does. I can now leave more notes on people so that I can recall them easier. I tried aurara, but it searched too many things. I just wanted one for contacts which is what contact search does.

    Thanks for your help

    The directions that popped when I launched contacts+ said you have to press 'more' the first time you search and select contacts+ but after that, the results should start appearing with the main results. I found that to be the case for me.

    Sorry (G), sorry envoy510 ... y'all got out-flanked by a gurl. She even spent his money while doing it, and she still got all the accolades. Gotta love it! :D :D :D

    Your kiling me with this one. You come across as if spending 99 cents for an app is rediculous. You paid 19.99 for your premium status.... Now thats funny.

    You missed the whole point entirely. Three people gave you good advice, albeit at varying levels and you chose to only thank one of them. The humor part really comes into play when her suggestion cost you money. If you don't see the humor in that, which you obviously missed, then I guess I'm wasting my time explaining it. (G) got it and that's all that really matters.

    And you trying to diss me for supporting this site is about as wrong as you can get. You're comparing apples to oranges, you freeloader! :(
