    Originally I typed in : top Craigslist apps.
    But no matter what I write it doesn't work. It goes away when I close and reopen the safari app, but if you try and search the meaning of that message u end up getting stuck on that page again. The last app I downloaded was puffin. But even after I deleted that it stopped working

    After removing that app, did you reboot your iPhone? Hold down Home button & Power button simultaneously until you see the apple on the screen, then let go of both buttons at the same time.

    Looks like you're running Safari in private browsing mode. Have you tried disabling that to see if the error stops? Only thing I can think of..

    Cell towers share an IP address. Some one else is likely spamming Google with automated requests via their cellular data connection. Google sees the spammer's IP address and you own IP address as the same because they are. You're both sharing the tower's IP address.

    Just tried on mine and couldn't duplicate:

    1. Put safari in private mode. (keep all tabs)
    2. Launch safari.
    3. Use existing tab and go to www.google.com
    4. In google search bar type: top craigslist apps
    5. Click Search.
    6. Returns results.

    Sorry I couldn't help. Maybe even my failed test will mean something through the course of your troubleshooting. Good luck!

    ----------

    So then all google searches from the OP's phone should get the same message then right?

    Try that OP. Try any other random google search...

    Also, if you have access to wifi, try it via wifi.

    Both of these tests could confirm Intell's post.
