Name search in dialer

Previously, t9 search used to work, to search names (as well as nubers) in dialer directly, by taping numbers.

I factory reset my phone few days ago, and now it doesn't work anymore. It just searches the contact number.

Is there any setting make this work?

Thanks in advance.

Have you imported your phone book again since running the reset?
