How do i get rid of the "Verizon Search" thingy? Everytime i try to search google with the search bar, it uses Verizon search instead of google.
Anyone know how to fix this?

Unfortunately you will need to manually choose the Google option.
Many Internet Service Providers and mobile phone data providers incorrectly provide a 'search service' for failed DNS lookups.
