    Hi!

    When I use the 'Search' in Contacts, they do not show up. It shows me 'Found in Mail', if we communicated by email before. But having lots of contacts, browsing through them takes a while. I have never had this issue before..
    How do I get my contacts to show in 'Search'?

    Thanks =)

    I'm not sure I'm understanding you. On my device (iPhone 6 Plus), if I initiate a contact search using Spotlight, it immediately finds what I'm looking for. It's the same if I initiate the Contacts app and do a search from within.

    Go to settings, general, spotlight search and make sure that contacts is selected.

    I've Googled around and found a possible solution for you. It sounds like it might just be a iOS bug. Either way it's worth a try!

    1. Open your Contacts app
    2. Tap on "groups" in the upper left corner of the screen
    3. Tap on "hide all contacts"
    4. Tap on "show all contacts"

    It may not work immediately but give it a few minutes and your contacts should start to show up in searches.

    Let us know if this solved your problem!

    Glad it worked. Funny how many issues can be resolved by turning something off and then back on again.

    Haha I know right! =P
    I was close enough, though! The first step I took was rebooting my phone, haha!
