    search function sux?

    Is it just me or do boolian operators not work with the search...i get the exact same results for:

    ear piece
    ear + Piece
    ear AND piece

    same goes for
    low volume



    people always complain and say use search..but i've always found the search function of ALL message boards (not just this one) is soo bad that i never want to use it.

    dont get me wrong..search is very helpful but to a point.


    am i missing something here??

    this thread should probably be posted here: http://www.smartphoneforums.com/foru...splay.php?f=57

    but meanwhile, try "ear piece" (with quotes)

    what you are missing is that the index is only for 4+ characters. The whole site would suck worse if we didn't limit it to this. However, you can use a "*" for wildcards. So to do the searches you were looking for up top, you'd do...

    ear* piece
    ear* + Piece
    low* volume
