Is it okay to leave the thunderbolt in a hot car all weekend, every week?
Yes, you BlackBerry did have issues with it, you simply didn't see them. The kind of heat inside a closed car in FL can melt phones. I live down there part time and I've seen it happen. If nothing else, you're shortening the life of every component in the device, starting with the battery. Temperatures above 140 will begin to break down the chemicals your battery is made of. You won't notice it right away, but you'll be reducing the number of charge cycles the battery can take. If you HAVE to leave it in the vehicle, I'd wrap it up in something and stash it far enough under the seat that no light shined on it. That's what I've done when I take mine to music festivals.
