I have a problem that's affected not just my current (Pixel 3A) mobile but others I've had recently. When someone rings my house phone and doesn't leave a message I normally check if they are in my mobile's contacts. On an older mobile I used to be able to simply type into my contacts a portion of a number, (the last 3 numbers from the person's telephone number, for instance) and anyone with those 3 numbers adjacent to each other anywhere in their phone number would show up in the contacts search. Does that make sense? I think I'm possibly looking for a wildcard character that I can use for this, the same as when using search in Windows. Or maybe there's an app that can help?
