i can search my outlook contacts (called "people" on this system) by name, but i can't figure out how to do a search by a phone number, address, notes, etc - any ideas?

"primortal" seems to be the smartest guy in the room - why no response to this question?

This is a peer to peer forum.  Not everyone responds to all the questions or is here every day to see the questions.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Unfortunately, no.  I'm unfamiliar with the Windows phones.

I couldn't find anything in regards to this.  It looks like you can only search for names at the moment.

that seriously sucks!  if i can't remember who i am looking for (which happens often) but know the street they are on or if i'm looking for all of the plumbing contractors in my contacts that is one of the most common ways i do a search.  Do you know if there are any plans to correct this? (same as how Outlook works)  any idea when?

Only Microsoft knows if they plan on expanding the people searching beyond names.

You can post the enhancement here, http://windowsphone.uservoice.com/forums/101801-feature-suggestions

I did a search on the support forums, http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/winphone/forum/wp8 and there is an app (for free) you might want to look at, http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/phone-search/6c745dca-6435-4d9f-9a42-7a13cd544974
