When I go to search, it says, "Search iPhone" in the box.

How do I change that to search Google?

  • OK, reading from the answer, I think I understand, now. First of all those are two different questions. Please ask another one for the email notification, there are ways and I'll gladly explain them on the new question. Apr 13 '11 at 7:49

If you type in the item you want to search for, an option will appear "Search Web". Press this and it will do a Google Search for the item you entered.

You cannot change the text itself (but the above should suffice in terms of searching google for a search term).

Matthew's answer above re the mail notifications is correct.


Also consider the excellent Google Search app.

  • since I deleted his bit on mail notification, you can strike that part too :p I suggest you edit your answer to only leave the Google Search app bit :) Apr 13 '11 at 9:43
