RE: Searching in the Phonebook
I agree. Having an option to search only the first letters would be very valueable. In fact I think it could be the default behaviour, no option needed. Search the first letters of name and sir name. Like autocomplete while dialing telephone numbers: you don't do compare full-text, you show numbers starting with the same digits.

In european languages, you tend to have combination of letters, which in comination form one sound and which appear very often.

E.G. in German there is "sch", simlar ot "sh" in English

If I search for "Schmid", a very common name in German, and I have a phonebook of 200 people, if I press "S" I will get like 100 hits, S being a very common letter.
If i would get just the people starting with S, I would get maybe 20 hits. Few enough to use scrolling.
Currently I have to go on typing (not using a keyboard but pressing a key multiple times for one letter). As soon as three letters are in the phone "sch", there still will be to many results as "sch" is a very common combination in German.

There are tons of those common combination. Typing an additional 3 letters, means like 8 additional key presses. This takes a long time.

Here at my company my users are not using the Yealink telephonebook. Looking a a sheet of paper of accessing a website is way faster.

The phonebooks could be really valuable, if search would be easier.
