    All the searches I've done on using a corporate directory don't seem to apply to the Skyrocket.

    I sync my phone with outlook and all my saved contacts come across just fine. However, on previous phones (Windows phones), I was able to search the corporate directory as well. I know other Android users who can do it as well, but I can't find the function on this phone.

    There is no search capability that I know of, however, there are some workarounds:
    1: If you start typing the address in a new email message, android will try to resolve the address in the corporate directory.
    2: I use an app called "Corporate Addressbook" (<-original name, isn't it?) to search the GAL by name. IMO it works a lot better when you don't know the exact address or even the person's last name. From there, you can add entries into your Contact List.
