    My iPhone 4S gets insanely hot everywhere on the device. The stainless steel band, the lower part of the iPhone isn't bad. But the top if the iPhone is really hot, burning hot. Should I see a genius? And my Siri icon is lost.

    This is just a wild guess, but are you outside when it gets hot? Or is it at anytime or the day, and even when you're inside? When I have gone outside with my iPhone 4 in the past, it would get so hot that it would either shut off, or give me a warning, and some features such as the voice to text would not be available.

    Anytime of the day, I'm sitting in my basement where it's about 67°.

    That is definitely not normal. I assume you have tried to close all applications that are running. With that said, I would go to an Apple store if you have one near you, if not then Best Buy or AT&T or your carrier.

    Try a factory restore first then start from there.

    Definitely a good idea. That should be the first thing to try, but I'm starting to think it's something in the iPhone that's causing an issue. Keep us updated IloveiPhones.

    Does it do it more during 20+ minute FaceTime calls?

    I have not tried to close all applications, as I don't see how that would make it hot, it would just bog down the phone and use more battery, which it does none of these things.

    I'll try to get to an Apple store, but its not looking good...oh we'll, I'm trading off this phone to my mom anyway now once I finally find a 5 to buy! :)

    My battery isn't too well, I think that maybe it or contributing to it,

    I wish you the best of luck. At least you're getting the iPhone 5! But you'll need to get the iPhone 4s looked at before handing it over to your mom. :)

    It contributes, but so does using the camera, and calling. This isn't normal.

    Sounds like it's something wrong with the iPhone itself. Possibly inside the iPhone causing it to get hot.

    Did that. Just simple web browsing and the phone is starting to get warm.

    Take it to Apple if under the 12 month warranty they will replace it with a refurb on the spot.

    Ha! I tried that. They said there was no issue and I have AppleCare+. My "genius" and I loosely use the term was too busy helping someone else at the same time. I was given crap service.

    I wish the OP better luck than me.

    Mac, I had that happen with my first 4S... Apple changed it out. If nothing else, call them and talk to them.
