S Finder

Note: Screens and settings available may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

S Finder makes it easy to search for a wide variety of content on your device and on the internet. You can enter keywords using your voice or the keyboard.

Search Using S Finder

1. To access S Finder from any menu or application, open the Quick Panel by swiping two fingers slightly separated from the top of the screen to the bottom.

Note: Depending on your wireless service provider, S Finder may be found in the Notification Panel by swiping from the top of the screen to the bottom.

2. Touch S Finder.


3. Enter a keyword in the Search box to begin searching the device, or touch 1 to speak your keywords.


4. Narrow your results by touching the icons under the Search box to filter your search by content type, date, content tags, and location. Touch 1 to narrow your search results to only handwritten content.


5. In the example below, we have added the Conversations filter to narrow our search to only messages with Ruth.


6. Remove a filter by touching 1 next to the filter name.
