    hi guys, so i just got myself a used iphone 3g, the issue im having is the battery heating up quick. an example is i charged my phone overnight and in the morning i would play about 3 or 4 youtube vids and the back cover would feel really hot, ALMOST to the point where my fingers would sweat, but not THAT close to it. And sometimes i would check my phone during class time just to see if anyone texted me, not opening any apps and the phone would heat up really hot. So is this normal? i do remember the previous owner telling me he swapped the battery out to a newer one? but i can't confirm that because my battery life still sucks, dies out in close to a day. So would i need a different reliable battery? Thx in advance.

    well i notice when i wake up and start to use my phone to just text a couple people, my battery would rage up and feel really hot, is this a defective battery im have issues with? or bad soldering? i have a 3g.

    Yes There is something wrong with your battery

    in order for my iPhone to heat up to annoy me it has to be in the charger while i use it for 30-40 mins before it heats up to make my fingers sweat

    the previous owner told me he had the battery replaced at the apple store, could they have swapped a new battery in, perhaps the 3GS battery which had a recall because of overheating?
