    hi, I've had my iPhone 3G for a couple of days now and I have to say so far it's been brilliant. I don't know how I ever lived without an iPhone before.

    However I've searched the forums and haven't found anything but does anybody know how to delete the search history on google search in safari? i.e. when you start typing in the box it comes up with suggestions based on previous searches, does anybody know how to reset that? sorry if it's a simple question and any help will be greatly appreciated, thanks.

    This is like the fourth thread I've seen like this. LOL! You could just say, "I was searching for porn on my phone and now I don't want to get caught" instead of sounding innocent. We all know why you really want our help. :D:D:D:D:D:D tehe

    As Randman said above -

    You can clear the safari cache from the settings menu, its almost like clearing your cookies etc on a PC.

    Busted lol.

    FYI, to clear the Google search you have to go to history in the Safari App, clear the history, go to settings, clear the history, the cookies, and the cache, then (in settings), switch the search engine to yahoo, go back to safari, clear the history, go back to settings, clear the history, the cookies, and the cache, then switch the search engine back to google and all should be gone (at least that's what I remember from the other threads about this topic). And just realized this is an old thread - sorry! But it might help the next guy who searched for ________. Haha.
