    I opened my phone yesterday and the google search bar at the top of the screen was just gone. Is there anyway to get it back?

    It should appear as "Search" is it not their? It shouldn't have been removed :)

    I removed mine and re-added it. It's a widget listed as "search", not "google search".

    For what it's worth, you can always hit the search button on the slide-out keyboard. If you want to use the on-screen keyboard, then I guess the Google Search widget helps, but I find typing on the slide-out keyboard a lot easier (and one of the main selling points of the Moment).

    And as a bonus I get to save the 4 spots of space that the widget takes up.

    I found it under my widgets under search.

    Thanks for the help everyone. I was just too lazy to experiment with it ;)

    It's easier than all that. Hit menu. Hit search. There you go FWIW...

    This really goes to show just how functional this phone is.

    You can use search on your homescreen (or wherever you put it)
    You can search from menu
    You can search from the keyboard

    I love Android, and The Moment.... Just thought I'd put that out there...

    moving on.

    On the main keyboard, in the upper lefthand corner, is a button w/ magnifying glass. Press that.

    hey guys, how do I get the google search with the microphone?

    The Hero has the talk feature where you can say instead of type what you are looking for when using Google. I was disappointed to find that the Moment does not support it. And thank God it isn't supported by that lamo Nuance program:rolleyes:

    that is a real disappointment, the moment is an upgrade from the hero, yet a feature like this is not supported

    Once the Moment gets an OS update it should be able to support it just fine. Just have to patient a little longer.

    I wanted to get the Google search bar OFF the screen, but I cannot locate a "widgets" icon or locate widgets on any of the menus. Any help is appreciated. The manual for this phone is very inadequate.

    Damn. I found widgets, but now I have TWO google search bars on the screen. There has to be a way to fix it. I would appreciate ANY help. I'm ready to exchange this phone after only two days.

    Long press on one of the Google search bars and drag it down below to the trash icon, it will remove it.

    You need to be patient to learn Android, if you're not, then you should stay away from Android and use an iPhone or some other dumbphone.
