    The little search "soft key" next to Home will do what that widget does and doesnt take any space on the screen.

    Sometimes a "smartphone" is only as smart as its user.

    Yes, you're right. But I have gotten into states (can't reproduce right now) where pressing the search soft key, either tap or long, didn't call up the audio search button.

    If you tap the search softkey it brings up quick search which will search google and usable options on your phone for that search. Tap the search softkey, type starbucks, it will bring up link to starbucks.com, option to view starbucks on map etc. If you long press the search softkey it brings up the voice search. You can tap or long press the search key even while you are in an app and get what you are searching for without exiting to your home screen. So there really is no need for the google search widget unless you just like the look of it

    Well, you do have to admit that it's mighty attractive.

    I can not figure out how to remove the search widget - the OP couldn't figure out how to get it back

    I only sorta want to remove it for now, mainly want to better understand how to make modifications

    If I understand how to remove that widget I will have a better understanding how the phone works, one baby step at a time...

    Lovin this phone

    Press and hold the widget until the trash popup appears at the bottom. Drag to trash.

    Love this phone too...
    Done 'em all - now doing it right.

    The math thing in search is really cool. It even does trig functions. Learned something new today. Now I can watch basketball without guilt.

    The little spy glass button...aka: softkey on the lower right hand side performs the same function.

    Have fun with it! It took me at least a week before I got the hang of widgets/apps/homescreen organization. You will likely change it 1000 times during your first month.

    You avoid mistakes through experience ... you gain experience by making mistakes. Have fun learning to use your phone!
