I went to the movies today, and I noticed my pocket got very very hot . I checked my iPhone and it lost 30% battery in like an hour and half. There was a circle o looking thing spinning . My battery is usually holds a long charge. What happened ? Any tips ?

The spinning circle sounds like the download or syncing indicator. Was it spinning the entire time?

I thought maybe it was the sync wheel. Or the (is it roaming) little o.
The GPRS indicator doesn't spin, though. It sounds like the phone was downloading something, which would explain the battery drain and heat.

I think it was looking for service ?
Because I was trying to send a text and it wouldn't work. But the phone was burning hot !

It says "Searching" in the status bar when it's looking for service. You said you saw a spinning circle; can you describe it a little better?

No it looked like the other o it's like a ring looking thing ?
And when I got out of the movie theater I turned my phone off for 5 mins and seemed fine. Just very hot !
