    The phone should never get hot. Warm sometimes, but not hot. Yes it should be replaced.

    Why have you started a new thread for this? You've already asked the question in a recent post in *this group*.

    I doubt it...

    Reason I say this is because the phone, when in use, will get warm. With heat, it is subjective to each user. Overall, with use, the phone will heat up.

    I would suggest restoring your iPhone and setting up as a new phone before you take it for service.

    No worries.

    If the phone gets warm that's not a problem. Hot is a problem, especially after 15 minutes of usage. If none of that is an exaggeration then personally I wouldn't continue to use it.

    its funny you say that... because here i am resoring my phone to factory settings so i can see if it solves the proximity sensor thing (which it DIDN'T...like i thought), and my phone is super warm on the upper right hand side. i was thinking maybe it's because it's been working on syncing/restoring etc for the past hour.. but i'm actually a little concerned about it. i'm going to be swwapping this one out as soon as i can anyway, though.

    best of luck to you. and i know, i'm new to this forum stuff too and i'm sure i'll be scolded for opening a new thread somewhere. LOL this site is huge tho... really cool to get advice quick tho, love it.

    Yes, it will be replaced. My iphone 3Gs was getting very HOT when using Pandora. As other said, it should only get warm but never HOT!
