On the home screen, click the Messages icon.
  • To search for messages based on the subject, highlight a message. Press the Menu key > Search by > Subject.
  • To search for messages based on the sender, highlight a message. Press the Menu key > Search by > Sender.
  • To perform an advanced search, press the Menu key > Search by > Advanced. Specify the search criteria. To save the search criteria, press the Menu key > Save. Click Search.
  • To search for messages using the criteria from your last advanced search, press the Menu key > Search by > Advanced. Press the Menu key > Last.
Note: If you search for messages, your smartphone doesn't search attachments.
To stop a search, press the Escape key.
