    I have my Incredible sitting on my desk at work, (currently running OS 2.2 but this has happened with 2.1 also). I will go to google on the internet and click the box, before typing anything I will see my "history", however, they are searches that I did on my laptop (word for word), not on my phone. Has anybody else seen this happen or know how my browsing history from laptop is showing up on my phone? Note: Phone has WIFI on, bluetooth off; laptop has bluetooth on.

    This is just a guess but... Are you using google chrome on your laptop and signed in to your google account? Maybe that could do it.

    Within the search app, hit Menu, Search Settings, Google Search and uncheck Search History.

    I'm getting the same thing. I'm not using chrome, i use Firefox.
    but what i attribute it to is being logged in Google on my laptop when i do searches, and therefore because im logged in to my Google account on my phone as well, it brings them over. Just a guess though
