is there a way to search music i already have on my phone?
I come from iphone and it was easy to find music but on my new wp8 phone, xbox music doesn't have search button.
I am not looking for universal search as described in How to search existing music ??
I am just looking for search capability within xbox music.

I know it's a long workaround, but at the very least on my HTC TITAN you can go to marketplace, search for the track, and then go from there. Say I search for "Miss FD". There's all her albums there, but on there is an option that says something like "On device" which when clicked brings up all the albums on your device. Don't know if that'll work for you? I doubt it will, but that is how to do it currently, as far as I'm aware. It definitely does need fixing though if I am correct.Windows Phone Central Moderator "Fortune cookie said: 'Outlook not so good'.

Thanks for the reply. that is still too many hops that i will just scroll through a coule thousand songs or by a hunds of artists....
I kinda diagree to the quote though... I am not praising how things worked on iTunes. I don't understand why my new windows phone can't do better. It doesn't have to be exactly same as my old iphone but at least if it is going to play music, then give people a way to search for a song. I am surprised that there isn't any descent music player in the store either. I tried HeyDJ, Amazing Music, playMusic, SKY Music, Touch Music and none of the can search (not by voice) music on my device. it must be really hard to add that feature...

Not to insult your ability, but don't jump lists with albums, songs, and artists accomplish the same thing? I might not have as much music as you but I usually just jump to the letter of the album/artist and go from there.
