    I have a Contour case on my iPhone 3G. I read that when charging the iPhone the battery heats up and when inside a case it could get a little warm.

    My question is, do you charge your iPhone with a case on it? Or do you remove it every night? Its a major pain to take your case off every night.

    I'm glad that you opened a thread on this, as I was worrying on this too.
    It tends to get a little warm when I get it charge too.
    But there isn't any problem so far. *touches wood*

    When charging with the Griffin Elan Form, I notice that iPhone seems to get a little warmer than I'd like.

    it will get warmer, but since you are not draining the battery you should be fine

    the overheating refers to a phenomenon where the phone is being overworked ( gps, 3g, full bright screen on, etc) and you attempt to charge it.. it will stop charging if the phone overheats
