iphone does not let me text or use siri to dictate or find contacts in email.  When I turn on my phone and click on messages and then try to type in a name, it freezes.  Same thing happens when I try to compose and email.  I click on a few letters for the email address and it freezes.  voice dictation does not work either.  Now, this all goes away after the phone has been ON for about 45 minutes.  Then all is well.  Any ideas?

Works fine here (iPhone SE IOS 12.1)

Shut the phone down. Hold the top button until you see the swipe to shut down. Swipe and shut down.  Wait 15 seconds, start up and test.

Then if necessary, go to (on the phone) Settings, General, Reset and Reset Network, then Keyboard Dictionary, then Home Screen layout, then Location and Privacy.  

Shut down and restart in between each reset.

Finally test and Hope because the next step is an erase and restore from backup.

Sometimes Phones go erratic and complete shut down, start up fixes it.  Seen that on numerous occasions.

This happens every morning for a little less than an hour.  I turn off my phone at night every night.  There has not been a day in the last 2 months where it has not happened.

Yes.  I was just wondering if OP is turning off the phone completely each night and then turning it on in the morning.  imo, its not necessary to completely power down the phone.

So try the resets that I posted.

Also make sure you are on IOS 12.1.  Do that via iTunes and there is a cellular firmware update there.
