Universal Search Options

If you're a big fan of Universal Search in OS6 you'll know that it can be a valuable tool. Getting to things quicky an easily just by typing a few letters is great. The one thing I didn't like however was that there were tons of results for things I didn't care to see -- like music (since I have none on my device), YouTube, podcasts and bookmarks. I loving using Universal Search, but having extra items show up in my results was annoying at times. Luckily there is an option to customize the search results to your liking. By going to Options > Device > Search you can choose which items to display in your results. Disable whatever you don't want showing up and be more productive when using Universal Search. You can tweak email addresses, YouTube, Google, BlackBerry App World, Facebook and loads more. Happy searching!

I recently upgraded my 9700 with OS6 through the T-mobile BlackBerry Beta Zone program and didn't know you can filter Universal Search. Now that I know this, I love OS6 even more!

OS6 FTW!!!

if I'm not mistaken, typing a word while on the home screen automatically brings up the search function does it not? No need for a convienance key or shortcut?

Thanks!!!
I've had os6 since the first day it got leaked !!
November 2 !! :P
And just found out about that !!
Thanks Crackberry !!

Hi,

I am really disappointed with the Universal Search, as far as it doesn't search inside the memos, at least in my Bold 9780. What I have made in previous blackberrys easily, I can't make now on this supposed so advanced OS.

I only find the memo if I now the memo title. Is this the usual way of searching?
