    I couldn't find anything on this so here we go. We all have the hard button for "Search"...is it possible to have it search EVERYTHING but not give you Google suggestions first? (I can uncheck Google in the settings, but I want those suggestions as well, just not to clutter the top of the search)

    Let's say I want to find a Pizza place down the street from me. It's very possible it's already in my contacts, so when I type in "Johnny G's", I'd rather see any possible contacts first, and google searches after. But instead I get all google and youtube suggestions first and have to scroll through a long list to see if the contact is in my phone. This is the same for Songs and Artists as well.

    ALSO, anybody have a problem using the search button in Landscape? I type in something, then hit the back button to drop the keyboard, and it returns me back to the homescreen. This works for dropping the keyboard in text messages because it's quicker than Holding the menu button.

    So all I'm really asking is, why doesn't search give you MOST relevant first. If I have a friend named Mike in my contacts and I type MIKE, I shouldn't get suggestions from Google for Mike Posner, Mike Tyson, Mike Rowe and all these other mikes first.

    I also wondered about this. It bothered me enough that I turned off web suggestions. I would like to have them on there, but I want it at the bottom, not the top of results. My Droid 1 did it in the proper order, I don't know why the DX reversed it.

    Yeah my Droid Eris did this the correct way as well with it's search button...it's odd.

    Also I saw this was moved to Support/Troubleshooting? It's not a problem with my individual phone, I think it's the software. I tried a phone in my local verizon, same outcome.
