Hi, our Google Adsense account has google adsense for mobile but we cannot find the google adsense search box for mobile sites.

Can anyone please let us know how to enable the mobile adsense search box?

Thanks!

Adsense for Mobile Search beta was launched in Feb, 2009 but does not appear to have been opened to everyone yet. Maybe the registration form still works.

Possibly AMS is intended for older phones?
Regular Adsense for Search should work okay on smart phones.
If you choose to have results shown on your site instead of Google's, the layout should probably be changed to fit a narrower screen.

I use the regular AdSense for Search (CSE) search box for mobile, and pick the minimal design. Seems to work well.

You have to create your own CSE by going to My Ads in your Adsense interface, clicking on "Search" in the left menu, then either clicking "New Custom Search Engine" at the top of the page or clicking on an the name of an existing SE.
The options on the first page are limited. For more options suitable for mobile click on the link at the bottom of the page "Access more advanced search features".
Click on "Look and Feel" in the left menu to access the layout controls. The Compact style is intended for mobile.
