Re: My Pre gets Hot after I used it for a while....

If I recall correctly, that was one of the first flaws they had mentioned about the Pre.  I noticed it right away when I first got mine because I was constantly playing with it to figure everything out.  For me, it gets hot whether talking on the phone for awhile or surfing the net.  Seems to not matter what you're doing, as long as the phone is in use one way or another, it gets hot.  I don't know if any kind of update can fix that issue, but it would be nice.

I just got my pre. When II was figuring out all the fuctions and setting up apps, number, etc. it got extremely hot.  Do you think its the batteries?  I bought it at Best Buy and have 30 days to return.  I love the phone but the heat scares me.  It gets really hot.  I have a cover protecting it, I wonder if thats making it get even hotter.  I think I may go back and exchange for another or maybe get the Hero..

I honestly think that's something that happens to EVERY Pre, so exchanging it won't make it go away.  I believe there is an explanation in the "Tom's Journey through Prelandia" forum string on this site.  It sounds like there's a chip that's causing the heat, but it's because it does a lot of the work.  It hasn't seemed to be a problem for anyone yet....no one's phone has blown up or stopped working because of it.  But it's up to you what you ultimately want to do with it.
