Is anyone else having a problem using the search bar in the new iOS 7 Messages app?


I can't even search for messages from people I know sent them to me. that I can see by scrolling down. If I type someone's name shouldn't their message thread be displayed? Evenworse if I don't have someone has a contact and just have their number I can't search for any content of the messages.


Any advice would be appreciated, I'd rather not scroll through my entire Messages message history to find a thread. I used to be able to just start typing someone's name.



iPhone 4S, iOS 7
