    Wink Search in in all fields of contacts file

    I found it very helpful on my Psion/EPOC to search in the contacts DB in all fields for a special term which is not the first name or surname.
    On my Nokia E61 (S60) I can only search for first names und surnames which is poor.
    I need help how I can find names in the contacts DB of my E61 by entering other search words ( which I remember myself) than name and surname.
    Help!!!!!

    Re: Search in in all fields of contacts file

    The E50 has a "global search" app that can search contacts, calendar, messages, files, ... Maybe someday it will be made available for other S60 3rd Edition devices like the E61, too.

    There's also this app (you could ask the developer if he has plans to make an S60 3rd Edition version):

    Re: Search in all fields of contacts file

    I discussed that already with Nokia support and they could'nt help me.
    Seems to be a security issue. However I think it is really helpful.
    Global search is fine but i'm already happy to search in all fiels of the contacts DB. Will approach Nokia developer.
    Thanks

    Re: Search in all fields of contacts file

    There're no security issues in searching all fields in the Contacts database. It is quite possible (as, for example, shown by the two apps I already mentioned, which do it) by any software developer.

    It is just that the built-in Contacts app only looks in the first and last name fields, and nothing else. Nokia can change this any time they want (any time they wish to invest the time and money to change the Contacts app lookup feature).

    Unfortunately you are right and I understood Nokia is not willing at all to make 'search in all fields' of contacts available.

    Re: Search in in all fields of contacts file

    Nokia *HAS* already made "'search in all fields' of contacts" available in the E50 model (as I said in my first reply). So, the question is, I hope, only when is it going to be available on/for other S60 based phones?

    Thank you; do you know how I can copy the calendar file to the memory card of my E61?

    You can't (except as a backup file, if you use the "Memory" app and its backup to memory card feature). In other words, the Calendar database location is fixed to phone memory (the C-drive) in S60 based devices (at least today).
