    EASY Solution:

    I am also suffering from this problem, i cannot solve the problem but i have a good way to get rapidly your required contact.

    So, follow the way:

    At home page menu > slide left for Widgets > where your recent items displayed > at top > "SEARCH"

    use this search for contacts also, your required name will be displayed here 100% ......
    don't forget to complain iOS for fixing this bugs after upgrade iOS 10.1.1....

    Thanks & Regards,

    I did the group thing. I have an iPhone 6s Plus and ever since I switched back to iPhone I wasn't able to search all my contacts. One in particular that I don't always talk to but when I need to, I'd have to go all the way through my texts to call her. I could never just search her contact. I went into my contact, tapped group, changed it to "show all contacts" and now I can search anyone. Thank you for all your help guys! The spotlight suggestions didn't work for me..

    Simply go to settings>General>spotlight search>Turn off Siri suggestions, Suggestions in lookup,Suggestions in search
    Then turn on again. Now turn off ur device by holding power button for 10 seconds then restart.
    Here you go
    Mine solved.
    I'm using IPhone 6 Plus iOS 10.1.1

    I think the hard reset works for all cases. Try the hard reset first to see how.
