  3. Online contacts search function not working.

    My problem is more peculiar. Have been using MS MyPhone for 1-1/2 yrs and have more than tens of thousands of messages stored in my online account. When searched for SMS messages received from a particular contact, it yields SMSes received only prior to
    a cut-off date but does not show messages received after the cut-off date although it is clearly there. Same is the case with contacts search. It is extremely frustrating and sans simple logic.

    Search function not working

    Hi, are you talking about
    - Cortana search (the search box on the taskbar)
    or
    - search using Windows explorer
    or
    - the search box in Settings dialogues
    or
    - something else?
    Thanks!
