    Apple Support nor AT&T has been able to help me resolve this issue. It seems as it should be a simple fix.

    My OS has been running slower and slower with time. Normal, right? Not on an Apple product. I really expect this thing to run like new everyday.

    The last update included the Search feature (which is annoys me everytime I accidently slide to it). Well, needless to say, I tried it out. Shocked, it revealed to me email I'd deleted months ago. Emails that had been removed from my Trash folder months ago.

    The phone is storing this data somewhere. After a shutdown and hard reset, I'm still able to paste previously copied information. This unnecessary storage of information could very well (and I believe it is) slow down mine, and other OS.

    Is there a resolution to this problem. I think there is; I just haven't figured it out yet.

    Thanks in advance,

    I guess I was a bit passive there, never asked an outright question.

    How do I erase the chached data, or reset the RAM for my phone. The 'Hard Reset' does not resolve this problem.

    here is a link to a thread that you may find helpful. These emails that your finding in spotlight are not cached. I believe they are just free space that has not been securely erased.

    As far as your phone running slow. You may have to go into iTunes And do a restore as new (do not resore from a back up). Good luck!

    Fill up your phone with media data until free space is gone. Then delete the unnecessary media files. This will over write the old data. Basically a manual single pass secure wipe.
