    What are you polling for? That a few defective units are overheating (true) or it's a widespread problem with iPhone 3GS (not true)?

    it warms your hand, but mine has never got near to overheating

    PS, I love the way it is normal for computer to get so hot when playing video games, especially my unibody macbook. But when a mobile which runs a complex 3d game and gets a tad hot, people are up in arms!

    Because a computer has heatsinks and fans built in, while a mobile phone has basically no way to spread/relive heat, especially with a plastic housing.

    My 3g would get really warm with extend use, especially using GPS, never thought of it as an issue... its a computer, with no fan, heat needs to dissipate somehow.

    I'm sure it's just a problem that affects a small number of units. Faulty battery, factory errors.
    Some heat will be normal in anything with so much sophisticated silicon. But to discolour the case, it must be getting over 100C easily.
    This is a lot of panic over an issue affecting few people
