    in my contacts section of the phone app, if I use the search function then it doesn't come up with any finds, despite having all these contacts in my contacts.

    I've experienced the same thing on a 5S.

    I was going to check back this weekend to see if it was an indexing issue after updating to 9.1. I also have over 4,500 contacts.

    I have this same problem when I updated to 9.1 on my 6s plus.

    There are enough people having it in this thread alone not to be an isolated incident. I filed a bug, I advise you to do the same.

    Had the same issue - however I clicked on the Groups button on the top left corner, hit Done and was able to use the search functionality again.

    That did it. Must be something wrong with the 9.1 update leaving things in a funky state.

    However, quitting contacts and restarting leaves it broken from searches. You have to re-do the group select fix each time. Definitely a bug.

    I don't have a "groups" button, but what looks like just a refresh button.

    I have done a settings restore which has solved the issue.

    Same with me. I clicked the "Show all contacts" button in Groups and it seems to work now.

    Seems to only be an issue when using groups for your contacts. Both of these are fixes. If all contacts are selected it seems to stick and work fine. If a single group is selected it only sticks unless you close contacts and reopen. Filed bug report and got response from Apple that 9.2 fixed it. Unfortunately for me it hasn't. Also tried a reset all settings after 9.2 update and still exists. Updated the bug report.
