phone heats up as if it's gonna blow, gee!

well, i'm not quite sure if this can be fixed but anyway... the problem is the qwerty keyboard and the upper part (where the camera is located) of my verizon tp1 heats up just BADLY while using the internet. any ideas? i already flashed the telus radio but it doesn't seem to have effect.

thanks yo!

If its while you have it plugged in and charging, welcome to the joy of owning a Touch Pro. If it does it without being plugged in then I would say there is something wrong with the phone.

Re: phone heats up as if it's gonna blow, gee!

Yup just had this happen again while driving. Phone got so hot (I have it in a case) that while I had it charging and playing music it wouldn't charge anymore. It helps to open the phone up. This allows the phone to cool quicker.

Re: phone heats up as if it's gonna blow, gee!

mine gets hot too. A few things I noticed
When I have the TP in Highbred mode, and I have a weak signal, it gets hot trying to keep a good signal.
So, I have set my "mode of operation" to 1x only. In my area, I have found that this works really well, since evdo is available but signal is pretty much crap everywhere here, it seems to get really hot trying to use it with a weak signal. If I go out of town, to a city, where signals are WAY better, I dont notice it heating up as much. Only when there is a weak signal.
So, the crappier the signal, the harder the phone works trying to get the throughput it needs.
