The fine print

January 4, 2010 in Internet,Technology

From the "that's a feature, not a bug" file: I always thought my iPhone's ability to continue email searches on the server (as opposed to emails stored on the phone) was broken, since it never returned any results even for emails I knew existed. Today, I learned that remote search is explicitly not supported, according to the Google Mobile Sync fine print:

Searching Gmail for messages that have not been synced to your phone is currently not supported.

As a workaround, I'm experimenting with syncing more emails to the phone...
