    Not sure if this is an OS issue or an app issue....

    I have some vcards stored on my micro SD card but google contacts won't recognize it to search. Doesn't give me an option to specify where to search either.

    So far as I know, Google Contacts only searches the internal memory (located in the /sdcard/ or /mnt/sdcard/ directory). Many apps have not been updated to include searching the /Removable/ directory where the microSD card resides. Some apps have, and each day it gets better. Try moving the VCards to the internal memory somewhere and see if that helps.

    Not the best solution, but it is the best band-aid that I can come up with at this point.
