Tip of the week
Hey Guys,
With all the new phones coming out I was wondering if you have any suggestions for a phone wipe app for the old android? I don't know about everyone else, but I'm a bit paranoid about data that is left over on a phone when you recycle it.
Love the show
Thanks
Glenn

Answer:
Josh Lowensohn: Did this yesterday with my phone after Froyo was running a bit sluggish. It�s in all the versions of Android and can be found in settings > SD card & phone storage > factory data reset.
Wipes the SD card as well.

I'm new to android (got MyTouch running 1.6 two months ago) so I hope you can help:

Is it true that there is no way to search email accounts on the Android system? Is there a way to search the body text of emails for a specific string of text?

Thank you, you guys are so helpful.
