    Is there a way to search the contents of my phone for files, pictures etc? There is that Bing search, but it does not seem to search locally, just the web.

    I'm afraid not. Windows Phone 8 doesn't have a file manager/explorer so searching for files and folders locally on the phone isn't possible at the moment.

    You could try UNIFY. Unify Universal Search | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)
