    I'm using it for almost everything I do on the phone. It's unbeleivably quick and almost always brings up exactly what I want. I highly recommend everyone to give it try when looking up contacts or entertainment on their device.

    I quite like it. My main issue with it is when you use it to play a track from the iPod it only plays the song and the album it's on, it doesn't play all of the songs on your iPhone starting at the one you select (making it kinda useless for me since I almost always listen to all-song shuffle).

    I found I'm using it more then I thought. I have it set so when I double click the home button it goes to spotlight.

    I had it like that for a while, but then I realised that if you push the Home Button once to go to the home screen, and then once again, it takes you to spotlight anyway, so I reserved the double tap for one of the other options.

    No, I have accidently flicked to it several times. I'll probably never use it.

    Yep. It's changed the way I launch apps, among other uses. If it's not on the first or second page, I use Spotlight.

    I love it.

    I never use it. I kinda hate that it's even there. I wish we could just turn it off.

    It's an amazing feature but it works better if you limit the search items to what you really need, mail for example. It's also awesome for launching app. It might be one of the best features of 3.0.

    I have all of my work email go to my iPhone via Exchange. I've used it a lot already. One of the biggest missing features for those who use the iPhone in a business environment is the ability to search your inbox. Now there is still a shortcoming (doesn't search body of emails), but it is a mega, mega improvement.

    it's really convenient to launch apps if you have a lot of pages (i have about 7 pages...)
