    Need to find someone's number and wanted to use their name to search messages for it. Can be done? 6+ iOS 8.0.2

    Yes, you can search message contents using the search box at the top of the Messages app.

    A spotlight search (drag down on the home screen) will also search messages

    Actually, for me Spotlight search works better than searching within Messages.

    I use spotlight for search/opening pretty much anything, it's a great habit to get into and will save you a few clicks/presses
