Searching on phone question

Isn't there a way to do a text search of whole phone on theTP2? Seems I used to have a way to do that but now forget. I know you can open email, sms, etc and start typing but it seems there was a way previously to search the whole phone. Basically I want to do full text search on notes and tasks...

Thanks.

Re: Searching on phone question

The only way I know of is to use the Search icon (magnifying glass) and that is usually limited at best. I'd love to see if others know of a better search app...

best of luck
