Constant Lockups - Maybe Overheated?

    Anyone else had problems with the phone locking up in any number of applications, especially if it has been in the heat. I keep it out of the sun at all times, but 97 degree days in Texas can wear anything down. After a few hours of being outside, my phone tends to completely lock up and both the MENU and OFF buttons must be held until it turns off. Most times it needs to "rest" for awhile before it will come back on and work fine.

    Anyone else seen this? None of my other phones ever did this. Of course, none of my other phones could do what this phone can do! HA!

    I ended up sending mine back in (got a loaner for $29.99). They kept me updated via email on the status. The phone was not fixable and they sent me a brand new one. Whole process went pretty smooth!
