Searching for phone number

Postby wrigjef » Sun May 08, 2016 1:20 pm

I've received several calls that were inadvertently blocked by an app on my phone. I'm trying to determine if any of them were from members of the ward as I'm coordinating a temple trip. Is there a way to search For numbers in the directory?

The easiest way is in the LDS Tools app (at least LDS Tools for iOS) – you can search for phone numbers. I'm not sure if it's smart enough to deal with differences in hyphenation, parentheses, etc., but I just search by the last four digits of the phone number and that's usually good enough to narrow it down.

Go on-line. Print the directory to a PDF. Search the PDF (ctrl-f)
Have you searched the Wiki?
Try using a Google search by adding "site:tech.lds.org/wiki" to the search criteria.

This also works well in LDS Tools for Android.
