    So, whenever I pull up Spotlight Search, the device is always rebooting itself and I do not know why. It took a break for a few days and it pulled itself up normally, but now it is back to doing the same thing that it's been doing for a long time. Rebooting by itself.

    time to do a factory reset. then selectively re-install the apps that you really use and then the data.

    This may sound silly, but have you tried turning it off and on again? It's possible that the reboots you're seeing aren't full reboots but are keeping something bad in memory.

    Worth a shot, at least :)

    Yes. And I have to keep turning it on and off again multiple times as well.

    Now, my iPod Touch is doing the exact same thing again.
