How long have you had the phone?

This morning I used Viber to make a call. Somewhere at the 29th minutes into the conversation I noticed the phone was getting so hot that I can not let it touch my face any more so I hanged up and check, Baterry Monitor Widget indicates temperature were at 114.4 Fahrenheit. I have 3Do case on at that moment so I took the case off in hopes to cool it down ...

Anyone ever get that kind of temperature with your phone before?

Is this something we should be worried about?
I just got my Amaze yesterday and haven't even used it yet.
Waiting for a screen protector.
Is this a common problem? 114f sounds pretty serious.

This may be weird, but have you guys switched to the SIM cards included in the box? The first week I had mine, it used to get really hot, I read somewhere that switching to the new sim card fixed that. Just a guess really, mine gets warm, but only after intensive use for about an hour or so..

There is an update too that was released and that from what I've heard has helped with this type of issue.

Just about every phone overheats once in awhile but you'll notice it a lot more with HTC phones because of the materials (metals) used to build the phone. Metals will always be too hot in the Summer and too cold in the winter. Similar to leather seats in a car without the heat or a/c on.

Not sure since this is my first 1/2 hour conversation - I will recheck again tomorrow with both calling on Tmobile and Viber to sort it out. I suspect it may cause by using Viber eventhough my previous use of Viber on HD2 did not caused such ...

I am using the new sim card that came with the package.

I hopes it only happened once in a while too since I came from HD2 running both Winmo and Android - both SD card and Nand and my HD2 always been inside Otterbox Defender case and I've never had such issue.

Let's cross finger. Still have another 7 days to exchange tho
