    Got this tip in another discussion from someone who goes by "zamslam" so I can't take the credit. I haven't been using Google search much lately, but I haven't had the issue since I used zam's work around.

    Go into Google search settings and change it to only search the Internet. Uncheck "apps" or any thing else that it might be searching. This seems to have done the trick for me so far. But I still want to see how it holds up the next time I do some heavy usage.

    Almost the same here. it would lock for about 5 seconds after the second letter was entered. I unchecked apps, as suggested by thinman72069 in the above post and now it seems to be fine.

    Are you guys using ADW launcher? The google search widget that comes with that will only work for ADW.

    I've been meaning to get back to this thread. Unchecking apps has fixed it for me. Thank-you very much!

    Open your google search app; press menu; go to settings; then select searchable items.

    I have had the issue with a few different ROMs including stock froyo and gb. It seems to have to do with searching the phone and google instant results are slowing it down way too much.

    P.S. if you are the modding type, it does not happen on CM7 with it searching many things including apps and contacts.
