    Ideally it is not supposed to.
    But yes, it has happened to many who leave the phones in cars.

    Yes, it can, and the 3GS has a warning and shuts down when it gets to a certain temperature (I think it's like 118). I'm not sure if the 3G gives the same warning.

    I never got my iPhone to get that hot and I'm fairly sure you'd take care of it to not let it happen also.

    yep. especially in Florida...even if you have the phone out of direct sun exposure, it will still get hot. so just keep an eye on it.

    I lived in Florida and will say that when it came to using ANY electronics outside (phone, cd player, etc) I always kept them "under cover"

    It's not so much an iPhone thing as it is common sense. You don't want to bake your electronic devices...

    Didn't know it had a maximum altitude. I wonder why that is?

    Me either. When I posted that I was thinking: "Did Apple send it up in a plane to test this? LOL"

    It has something to do with Air Pressure. A plane cabin is pressurized unless you were on that Southwest flight yesterday, so there are no problems in a plane. However I took mine when I climbed a 14er here in CO and had no problems (14,060 feet).
