Thread: HOT iPhone!

  1. #1
    Default HOT iPhone!
    I was charging my iPhone yesterday whilst I was using it. On cydia too and I felt the back and it was burning hot. Couldn't hold it for more than 10secs. This was whilst the iPhone was wearing a incase slider case.

    Have I fried my phone????

    Seems ok but batt seems to be dying a little faster. But that maybe just me

    HELP

    They do get hot, but it has to get pretty hot to damage anything. Odds are you're fine...

    what do you mean you couldn't hit it for more than 10 seconds?

    you couldn't use the phone for more than 10 seconds?

    sometimes i feel my phone getting hot, next time i'd take it out of the case and use it. the case retains alot of heat, and its not good for the phone. I also have the incase slider, and when ever it gets hot, when i take it out of the case, it usally returns to normal after 2 minutes.

    i doubt anything would happen to the phone itself, but i have a white 3gs, and i get really scared when i can feel it getting hot.
    The only thing I ask in return for helping, is that you click the thanks button, Thanks!

    Which iphone was it? The reason i ask is because my iphone 3gs was doing the same thing well at least the getting very hot and battery problems. I took it back to apple store and they gave me a new one, the battery percent would jump around and die very fast. It would go from say 50% down to 20% warning then i hit sleep wake button, phone would go to sleep. 10 min later i would go to use phone and it would be at like 8% then die! When apple ran a diag they seen the phone doing it and he said "I've never seen that before" but I looked into before taking it back just in case it was a program or from a jailbreak program and it was not. There was some other people having the same exact problem with same results as me. I also unjailbroke it just to confirm and the phone still did it! The new one is perfect no problems at all! Battery is great and doesn't even get that warm from really heavy use!

    just logged into cydia gone down to 18% > 30mins with no other use

    is this normal

    Also what I've noticed is that whilst I'm charging and doing tasks like posting this my batt percentage. Is dropping. Eventhough it's on charge. But not on all tasks. I guess only the draining ones. Can someone check this out for me. Be aware it may not occur straight away.

    Thanks
