    Is it just me? I upgraded a few days ago to 7 on my iPhone 5 and now spotlight only searches SMSs sent or received since the upgrade.

    Nothing from the pre update SMS Data appears to be indexed.

    Can a few of the good readers test and post their experiences in this regard?

    Could some person please test on their phone and report back?

    I just did a search for "Simpsons" and it got three entries sent well before the upgrade

    A friend of mine is having the same issues, but I did a similar test as above and it's working fine for me.

    Thanks for testing for me.....

    My wife's iPhone 5 is also not accessing the old SMS data...

    Hopefully the ears at Cupertino are onto it and revision 7.1 restores this very handy search tool....I use it nearly everyday!
