My iphone 4 started heating a lot while using it and while charging it. I am not using any app and there is nothing on the background. This started happening 3 days ago. I can't find an explanation. I tried removing and then adding the email accounts, erasing all network setting and nothing.


Any ideas why and how to solve it?

iPhone 4, iOS 5.0.1

    Try a reset by pressing the home and sleep buttons until you see the Apple logo, ignoring the slider. Takes about 5-15 secs of button holding and you won't lose any data or settings.


    If still an issue, Restore it, either as new or with your backup.

    I think the issue is with the battery itself.

    Maybe. Maybe not.  Restore with the link above.
