Please deactivate number search

In my phone app on my new /e/-S8 I’ve seen, that the search functions (forward and backwards) are activated. On an /e/ phine I think it should be default that these are deactivated, right?

Regain your privacy! Adopt /e/ the unGoogled mobile OS and online servicesphone

Mhm ??? What do you mean. Could you pls share screenshots or some mire details ?

“Phone number lookup” in Phone app settings.
Forward & reverse lookup may be activated by default.

This has been raised as a bug here …you can add your comments

I think it was supposed to be deactivated already some time back

Yes looks like a regression

good that my phone app doesn’t have any access to data network :slight_smile:

Interesting. Some pointers? I don’t use my phones as phones, mostly as mini computers. In any single billing period I might barely have 5 minutes talk time. I don’t call anyone and no one calls me (except for job emergencies).
You have it blocked via firewall or…?

no, via setup. Since pie, you can restrict the mobile data access for earch app (but I think you know that way :wink: )

Oh, that’s right. Sometimes I forget these things. Thank you sir. /e/OS Pie is my first Pie actually. Still seeing how it does things compared to older versions.

second time today I remember you for something :joy:

Manoj understood me right and linked to the “bug” with status “doing”.
So I’m looking forward to this new “feature” and my question is answered. Thank you!
