This appears to be related to Spotlight Search. I found a fix here that worked for me:
"1. Turn off Spotlight Search: Go to Settings | General | Home Button | Spotlight Search, and uncheck everything
2. Reboot your iPhone 3G: Just a normal power down and restart
3. Turn Spotlight Search back on: Go back to same screen as step 1, and re-check everything you unchecked in Step 1"
Trouble shoot? Have you seen this thread?
Shutting down spotlight has only minimal improvements. Hard reset works for one or two days at best.
there is no solution - put 3.1.3 back on = a happy user.
I downgraded to 3.1.3 its not too hard to do (cant give you links - apple dont want you to downgrade - but do an internet search for "iphone 3g downgrade 3.1.3" or remove iphone OS4...
basically all you need is the correct 3.1.3 firmware (might be in your recycle bin - iOS4 deletes your old one in the hope you dont find it - if not you can download it from a few places, make sure its the one for your model - iphone 3G)
hold left shift when clicking restore & it'll ask you which one you want to use (otherwise itll be the same 4.0.1 or whatever you used last, point it at the 3.1.3 one)
let it restore & you need recboot to finish it (& libUSB too especially if your using vista)
when I did it I lost everything so make sure you back up everything 1st.
but yeah, 3.1.3 works just like you remembered it & all the apps you updated to be 4.0 compatible still work with 3.1.3
& http://www.apple.com/feedback/iphone.html - give them feeback - they wont reply, but if enough are logged maybe they will bother to do something....just dont hold your breath.
