    I hope your phone explodes for bumping this in only 7 minutes.


    And no, it's not normal.

    Mine gets a bit warmer than usual when it's on the internet using EDGE, but not so much when it's using Wifi.

    mine gets warm, but i think all phones i have had get warm with excessive use. it doesn't get hot though.

    You need to call and schedule a genius appointment. You can do it on the apple website as well at your specific store. You'll meet with someone, tell him your problem (best to have your problem ready, so be on EDGE for 15 minutes prior to going). Make sure you do it within a year of buying the phone if you don't have apple care.
