Can I search by phone number on the iPhone? Say if someones number is 123456, can I put this in some sort of search field (or part of the number) which will provide me with results? Thanks.

If you dial the number using the keypad, it'll inform you if you have the number stored as a contact.

Does it prompt me or will it start dialling automatically?

The name of the contact(s) that the number is assigned to will appear under the name.

I think the Google App will also allow you to search. It's been a while since I used it though.

Isn't there a spotlight search on the new iPhone 3.0? Won't that include numbers?

Yeah, it should :p

If it's a similar Spotlight as the one in OS X, it will look for absolutely anything relevant, even if it's in a title, a birthday, a number, a word, the name of an app, in a note, ...

There's an app which does exactly that in the appstore called Contact by #

It's free at the moment.

^What? It was posted earlier if you have the number stored in your contact/phonebook, just dial the number and it'll show WHO you'll be dialing. Is that what you want?
