    Search for the Sender of an SMS

    Hi,
    I need help to figure out how to search for the sender of a particular sms. When I search in the messaging app it only pulls up smses that 'Contain' that term. So for e.g. if i want to search on my friend's name to see which sms he sent me, the phone will only look for smses that contain that name in the body and not by the sender name.

    Also when i search the phone in general again it will only pull up that name from the contact list and not the sms application. Why is this?

    This is unusual as my previous Nokia phone would search the entire phone and pull up all data with that name.


    please help
    Thank You

    Why not just pull up the SMS thread and search manually?
