    I rarely use it. The only time I really use it is when I am not sure where I have a song on my iPod and want to find it quickly. Other than that it usually just makes me upset when I swipe too many times and have to flip back to my home screen.

    ok i see alot of ppl talking about how can i deactivate the spotlight feature or can i take it off my phone. my question is why? whats your problem with it? just ignore it, is not using your battery, is not in the main screen, is not using any space in the phone at all, so why? is like having a spare tire in your trunk and wanning to get rid of it, i really don t get it but the day you`ll need it and if you are smart you`ll use it why go to your email account and search for a specific email when you can search it in spotlight and find it in seconds or search for a contact out of 200 contacts fliping your finger on the screen when you can do the same only a lot faster in spotlight is like driving you car around the block to get to the street over when you can walk across the fence well i dont know but you guys should give the thing a try it really works

    Because it is in the way. I accidentally bring up spotlight search at least 15 times a day. It is annoying.

    I use it when I remember to. However, I am old and drink and I forget a lot.

    Once I got use to using it, I use it all the time now... Spotlight makes finding contacts easy, especially since I have everybody listed as their name but associated with their company, or nickname. This way I can use a real name but search for a nickname, also finding apps is easy using spotlight. I have not used it for emails, but also with the iPod it's easy...

    Won't it be nice when we can find things in our own data as easily as we can find it on the web.

    Lol... I used it for the first time since it's existence. Funny thing is, it was to locate a cydia app. It only showed up in the search for some reason and then after I found it, it showed up on the homescreen.

    I just added Universal Search (jailbreak) to Spotlight and it has increased the usability by 10x. I used Spotlight before jailbreak to search for contacts and email.

    I use it occasionally but hardly. It's a nice feature but somehow I navigate through a few things to get where I need to go.

    I think the use of this feature is a function of the amount of data and applications on the device. We did not need indexes of all the data on our systems until the quantity of data on our systems grew large. It should not be harder to find information on our own systems than to find data on the Internet.
