    trying to figure out how to do a local search over contacts, emails, sms and so on..

    when I use the search button I just get the bing search. How do I switch to local search? Do I really have to go into my contacts to call someone? any more clever way?

    New to WP7. I am using a BB 9900 as a business phone..

    No local search i'm afraid steiale, the quickest way of accessing a contact is pinning it to your home screen by long holding it. (Pin to start)

    While I understand you don't want all your contacts pinned this way, it does fine for a few regulary used contacts

    Oh and welcome along to WPCentral. :)

    You're most welcome steiale, no list, but Microsoft do have a request / feedback website where you can vote for features or add one if it's not currently there.

    You can find it on the URL below.

    FYI You can also pin groups to the home-screen.

    You can do it via voice controls too.
