    Since updating to ios 5 i cannot use spotlight search any more... I used to be able to type in the first few letters of a contacts name and the response was immediate. Now my iphone pauses then gives me a blank white screen.


    I have all the spotlight boxes checked for searching using >General>Spotlight search...


    When I go into >contacts> and type the contacts name in sptlight either no response or a blank white screen..


    I am using ios 5 with the up to date firmware, I have also restored my iphone using itunes but no difference.


    I have a 3GS 16gb with 10gb of disc space free....


    Any one got any similar experiences or can help please...?


    Regards.. Gerry
