    Hello,
    As I understand, the latest OTA from ATT (July 4th) removes the global search feature from my S3. As such, I'd rather not download it. I looked online to see if there is a way to disable the notification but they all were for rooted phones.
    Do I need to be rooted to stop the OTA Update notification or is there another way to do it?
    Also, are there any reasons to update anyway (security issues that need to be fixed?)
    Thanks!

    hmm... It does not let me clear the notification (the clear button is grayed out).

    I don't know if it's only in the US. The global search function was removed on my other S3 after the OTA update.
    So we're on the same page: the search function will still continue to search the internet but won't search your phone.

    Vtap Quicksearch is an app that has universal search. May be a partial solution. Wish it had voice command. I came from a palm pre so would miss it.
