iPhone Overheating

I got my iPhone yesterday and I absolutely love it. I went to charge it last night and thought I would see if it would charge on my iPod charger. It said it was charging so I was happily surprised and I thought I would leave it there. I then wanted to mess with it (after it had been charging for about 10-15 minutes) and when I touched it, it was EXTREMELY hot! I mean, scalding hot, untouchable hot. I was SO shocked! I immediately unplugged it and clicked the home button and the screen looked warped in the area of the camera (that is where it was hottest). It was whiter there. I rubbed ice on the back and did whatever I could to cool it down. Finally when it was cool, I turned it back on and it seems to be normal, but the screen is still a little discolored and warped near the middle/upper half and the speakers are messed up now. The speakers crack and pop whenever they play a sound. What do you suggest I do? This really scared/scares me. I need to get this fixed. I bought it from AT&T on my AMEX card and bought the Square Trade insurance including accidental. Please help.

Yeah, I did the same thing. I woke up and the phone was so hot I could barely touch it. Then I looked at the front screen and it was CRACKED! A huge crack down the middle. I took it into an Apple store and they replaced it no questions asked. Now I take care of my phone so well, they could see that it had not been dropped and such.

I was having the same issue and I tried not to use the iPhone while it was being charged and it worked for me. However, just take it to the genius once.

This happened when i first got mine, i was extremely close to my wifi connection. turn off wifi and make sure you have updated to the latest firmware. I would also do a restore if you just got it. Hope this helps.
