iPhone text message question

  1. So last night I was trying to go and re-read old text messages, starting from like April 13th. I kept hitting the button that loads the older texts on the text screen. After 30mins, I still wasn't back far enough, then I got a text from a friend and it brought me right back to the current texts :sad:

    Does anyone know if there is a way to search through text message via date? I tried using the spotlight feature with no luck.
     
  2. nope that is the way you have to search ....
