Universal Search problem

Maybe I misread the documentation.

I thought "Universal search" would find anything in the phone.

Mine only searches the contact list.

 

I have some important items (like Jury duty) in my calendar and in me "to do" list.

Universal search will not find Jury.

 

Am I doing something wrong?  

Anyone else had a problem?

Or is this a defect?

 

Thanks.

The Universal Search is only for the contacts.

Actually, mine works with a little "more" than just Contacts.  If I pop open the keyboard and start typing it FIRST searches contacts, then lists applications (if any) whose names contain the letters I typed - it gives me the opportunity to launch a web search (Google, Google Maps, Twitter), it will also search my Memos App - but the original poster is correct, it will NOT currently search my Calendars/Task lists.

 

I very rarely use the contacts list itself to scroll down and find somebody I want to call that I don't have on speed dial - I just pop open the keyboard and start typing their name - when I get far enough to see their phone number I can just poke it with my finger and magic happens.  (Now if they, [Palm], could just get voice dialing fixed I would be a REAL happy camper).

If your using Google, there's a program called Google Calendar Search, Free Download on the App catalog. Works great. Finds any appointment on my Pre every time (I sync Google Calendar)

Just downloaded Google Calendar Search, installed and it worked exactly as described.  Thank you MacDaddy, life just got a little easier. :smileywink:
