    Here is Contacts source code, MAUI do not have PickContactAsync("contact-id-here"); method.

    But you can get all contacts , then query it by contact Id like following code.

     IEnumerable<Contact> contacts = await Contacts.Default.GetAllAsync();
     Contact contact= contacts.FirstOrDefault<Contact>(contact => contact.Id == "contact-id-here");

    Best Regards,
