    I've experienced the same thing, but not in all situations. If I go straight into contacts and do a search, it's fine. But if I'm doing something like trying to add a phone number from text message to an existing contact, I get the same thing as you. What are you doing when you get this issue? I'm guessing it's a bug they need to address.

    This is a common issue we've been seeing but it's usually fixed pretty easily:
    1. Tap on GROUPS in the upper left corner of the screen.
    2. Uncheck all groups.
    3. Re-check all groups.
    4. Tap on DONE.
    5. Try your search again.
    Let us know if you're still having issues!

    Hi Mahesh,
    Follow this steps, the contact search will work.
    1. Go to icloud.com and login with your credential
    2. Go to Contacts and at the bottom left create new group
    3. Go to phone and select all groups and search contact will work.
