Mine gets super hot as well. It wont hold a charge and now I try to charge it and it is telling me I am using the wrong cord but it is the cord that came with my phone. This all happened ofcourse right AFTER I did the system update. Coincidence? I loved this phone but now I wonder about those updates. I cant replace the battery without voiding warranty and that leaves me with buying a new phone..coincidence? Glad I am not the only one that is frustrated.
