Remapping search button to search locally within an app
I just started using the Samsung Google Nexus S SPH-D720 and one of the things that I have noticed is when I press the search button it opens the search app. Frequently, what I want to do is search within an app. For example, in the Gmail app, I might want to search only within my e-mails not through everything on the phone. On my previous android phone, when the Gmail app was open and I pressed the search button, it would open search within the app rather than a search across the entire phone. Is there any way to change the search button so that when pressed, it opens search within the particular app I have open at the time and not open the search app to search across the entire phone?
Thank you in advance for your help.

Re: Remapping search button to search locally within an app
Thanks for the response. That is so frustrating. That means I am not able to quickly search for contacts either... I don't understand why they would make it a global command instead of a local command in the app. Is there any way to remap buttons or does that require rooting?
