  6. I tried all these but not working. It works once I switch off and on the phone, that too for a short time later it goes back to the same old condition . I emergency situation difficult when the search in contact is not functional.

  7. My solution in brief …

    iPhone 6 128GB persistently freezing when attempting to search 1852 contact cards.

    This issue appeared to be related to an update from iOS 8 and was not remedied with successive iOS updates or clean installs and rebuilds.

    I remedied and experimentally replicated issue of app freezing being associated with one contact containing a very large note (173,274 characters – 31,928 words)

    This huge ‘note’ had evolved with successive duplicates of this card being cloned … and subsequently merged.

    The offending note was relatively easy and quick to find.
