    Hello... when searching for text messages in the current iOS 4, it only searches for messages that are not behind the "load earlier messages" wall. If I search for a message that is in the "load earlier messages" section, the message will not be searched. If I click the button and it happens to be in the list now and I search, it will be found. Has iOS 5 added the ability to search absolutely all text messages? Thanks.

    at the moment there seems to be a bug with searches in messages.app and it causes the iphone to crash, hopefully this'll be sorted in beta 2

    In beta 7 it actually searches all your text message but when you tap on the result it brings you to the most recent thread in the conversation...hoping it's a bug...

    I no longer have ios5 but back on beta 3 i noticed that iMessages were searched completely but text messages were still only searched if they were visible and not hidden behind the load more button.
