Searching through contacts very slow in WebWorks app


I was hoping someone could offer some suggestions on searching through contacts in a WebWorks app.


Currently, the user enters a part of the contacts last name and clicks a button to generate a list of matching contacts.

Everything works correctly, however users with large contact lists experience a very long wait time (up to 20 seconds).


I am using the blackberry.find.FilterExpression method, to generated the filtered contact list. 

Is there a better/faster way to search a large contact list?

Yes, really slow Smiley Sad

Tested in a 9800 real device and run more slow than in a 9500 real device.
