I am trying to do a search for satellite radio. If I search for satellite AND radio it pulls up anything with both words in it however not as the phrase. How do I search for a phrase?

try "satellite radio" inside double quotes.

That usually works on most Internet searches: Google, etc.

Try the advanced method of searching which would be using the phrase satellite and radio.
See if that helps.

Parker, Greg:

I have tried both but it does not work. Both of these searches find any post with both words in it but not the phrase satellite radio. Try it and tell me if you get the same result

Donald when I put in satellite and radio (using the word and between the two words) I get all the posts with satellite and radio in them but I also get the posts with the phrase satellite radio in them.

a search on "xm" yielded 21 results

a search on "sirius satellite" yielded 3 results

Hopefully this will narrow it down for you.

Yes Parker.... that's what I got. I just wanted to make sure that I wasn't misunderstanding something. So it appears that there is no way to search for the phrase

satellite radio

or any other phrase for that matter??!!

Yes you can search for the phrase and will get that phrase listed but you will also get all the other posts with the words in the phrase included in your search.
