I have suddenly noticed over the last couple of weeks that when my phone is set on 3g and i make or receive calls that the phone is really getting hot in the back. If I turn 3g off and go back to edge the phone cools down and never heats up during phone calls. Also as much as I was a big fan of 2.1 I am suddenly getting some screen lag and my battery life seems to be getting worse. Any thoughts?

Although my battery life seems good, I also notice my phone is hotter sometimes. You are not alone.

check to see if your usage meter is growing while the phone is supposedly asleep. I just had my replaced. I never had problems before 2.1. My new phone is running 2.02 and will continue to do do for the time being

My phone gets a tad warm on a long conversation, however I would think that it's normal. Coming from years on CDMA, warm phones are kind of the norm for me.

I guess we should poll the 3G owners to see who's phone heats up and who's does not.
Mine gets warm, but not HOT....at least not yet. I expect a little warmth, but not as warm as a cup of coffee.
