10.4: Run quick area code lookups in Address Book Apps
I got a call today from a contact that I didn't have punched into my phone so it didn't come up on my phone's caller ID. So I typed the area code (718) into Address Book and got a listing of all the contacts I have with said area code. It just seemed the natural thing to do. I checked Address Book's help and this site, and couldn't find it mentioned. Simple and somewhat direct.

[robg adds: This tip is simply using Spotlight's search to run the find for the numbers you type; it's not doing a lookup only on area code. So if you have zip codes or street addresses that start with the same three numbers, those records will also show up. Still, it's a quick way to find all your entries for a given area code (with perhaps a couple stray entries).]

Google also brings up area code and Zip code info.
