i'd like to search these websites for any phones that start with the letter O (like "Ostritch") but 5 characters...

http://www.gsmarena.com/
http://www.phonearena.com/phones/carriers

could you think of a search phrase that could work..

i tried Oxxxx but that of course think of it literally as a string.. but i need a wilecard but also something to determine the space before or after..

(my mom came across a great review of a phone that started with O and 5 letters, but could not remember it now.. it was en route Europe Someone telling.. so it does not have to be a USA phone, but very well could be any countries.. the 5 letter word could have been the brand or the modelphone.. (like in samsung being the brand and S4 being the modelphone..)

in terms of brands... O2, ONEPLUS, OPPO, ORANGE start with right, but dont have 5 letters, and she recognizes they are not it..

could you see a way?

A quick check on gsmarena.com shows the O brands you mentioned. Is it reasonable to expect it to have more non-listed O brands?

Mobile/cellphone providers frequently put a badge or their own logo/brand on phones from manufacturers.
They also lock them to their own network.
So, identical phones can have many brands.

This is a useful link for deep web searches.

Oppo F1 should be the one your mom is looking for.

Don't you have to know the brand name before you can think about model numbers?

Not this one?

OOOOO

Here is a phone model data base.

https://www.esato.com/phones/

If it is not in the top 48, then you should consider the possibility that a phone outside the top 48 might not meet your needs.
