Before I go totally nuts, can anyone help me. Spotlight search is not showing up when I drag down from any screen. Really need a search feature. I checked all settings and they are correct.

If you're running iOS 9 beta, there will be times when it doesn't work properly.

I'm not running a beta and it has done this on every software version released on my iPhone 6. This is actually a replacement phone from an unrelated issue and it does it. When I swipe down periodically I will type what I want to search but I have no search options. Verified all settings. I've just dealt with it.

I don't know what to tell you except to restore and set up as new. I've only encountered it not working periodically while in beta form.

I'm on 8.4. Spotlight search shows up but it does not work at all.

Reboot and possibly a hard reset. Hold down Home and Sleep/Wake button until the screen shuts off, then wait a second and power it back on.

That's not really the fix I was looking for considering it's done it on my last two iPhone 6's. But it's not a deal breaker. I just deal with it. I enjoy the phone otherwise.

Thanks.
