    So, I know there isn't any smart dial function (this is really stupid imo), so does anyone have any alternatives for looking if you have a phone number already associated with a contact? I already tried searching in the People hub, but that didn't work. Any apps perhaps?

    On mine, when you search the people hub and type in the number, one of the options is to "search Google directory." When I do that, it gives me the contact with that number. Now, of course, I am syncing my contacts to Google.

    I think rapdialer does what you're looking for.

    I'm using Windows Live, and I don't get that option at all. Frustrating when Microsoft does things like this.

    This actually does exactly what I'm doing for. I think Microsoft should buy these guys and just make this their dialer....

    You might want to try an app called People Search. I downloaded it last week and I'm liking it.

    My brain stopped memorizing phone numbers when I got my first Palm Pilot. Figured all I needed after that was part of a name or company. Don't seem to have a problem finding a number, using name/company search in the People Hub. Then again, I don't have a thousand name in there. If a number appears with a text, I know it's not someone on my list, so no need to search.
