    The search slid over to the home screen to the left, during one of the phone calls. Now to access it, I have to go to the left home screen...

    I tried holding down and moving it, but it only moves about within the same homepage, and I can't get it back to the middle one.

    Help!

    yeah you have to go ALL the way to the edge (like part of your finger is over the edge of the screen) then it will scroll to the next home screen. Or you can just delete it and readd it if that is easier for you.

    You can always delete it from the screen you are in, go back to where you want it, and add the "widget" back...:eek:

    It's a widget, so the easiest thing to to is delete it from the left, and add it to the middle.

    Delete by long pressing it and dragging to the trash at the bottom, add by long pressing a blank space where you want it to go on the middle screen.

    It's really a redundant widget since there is a dedicated search button ;)

    And you can just open the keyboard and start typing to have the search bar pop up automatically.
