    Someone who has not done the update, do me a favor ... hold down the menu button to initiate a search. Type in the name of someone who is in your contact list and let me know if the contact info comes up.

    I could type in a name, and before I finished typing I would see the contact below. Same for apps. Neither of those come up for me now. Is there a setting that I tripped?

    For all those who received their update, when did you get your phone?

    Yup, just a Google search. This is stupid, updates that take away features all because of that f?#!ing fruit company and their patent sueing obsession. I hate apple.

    Doesn't hurt me, the first thing I do with the google search app is remove everything but web. But it's annoying that the extra functionality was removed.

    If you got used to this feature, its a pain in the **** to lose it, especially that if you want to search contacts, you have to go into contacts, then search, versus just using the global search

    to fix it, install GoogleQuickSearchBox.apk

    here is that file

    So you are telling me that when you open up Google search and put and contact name in there it will show the contract name? Please let me know what you did to get that to work.

    Glad to see a resolution. I'm moving from WebOS to Android at the beginning of August and I would miss the ability to search for contacts/apps/and web at the same time.
