Thread: Forum search term length ("N70" etc)

    Forum search term length ("N70" etc)

    Hi

    Thanks for an excellent and useful forum.

    Now that Nokia have released the N70, N90 etc could the forum search engine rule be changed to allow searching for 3 character search terms? Otherwise, anyone searching for one of these phones gets:

    "Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms.

    The following words are either very common, too long, or too short and were not included in your search : n70"

    Even using additional search terms to narrow down the search doesn't stop the 'n70' being ignored.

    Regards
    Andy

    Searching is the act of trying to find something or someone...

    One may search for something that is known to exist, with the intent to locate it...

    If You Post IMEI's or Code Request then READ THIS!!
