Search for a phone number in Apple Address Book

Post by sabdal » Mon Mar 23, 2009 4:27 pm

Seems like this should be simple, but I can't figure it out. I routinely get emails from my voicemail system with a phone number but not callerID information. I'd like a search template/script/etc. to search my contacts in apple's Address Book to return the name associated with the phone number.

Thanks in advance.

Well, if you're using Mail.app in Leopard, there are Data Detectors that might let you reveal the contact in the Address Book based on the phone number. Not 100% sure on that, though. You can also pass a phone number to Spotlight (manually or through LaunchBar) and it will return the address book card as one of the hits.
