that seriously *****! 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.
