    After having my iPhone plugged into a slow charger (my radio) and using Navagon while listening to music and having a conversation with a friend over Bluetooth, my new iPhone 4S burned me when I want to remove it from the mount. Should I worry about the glass exploding? It formed a nice little blister.

    Expect to be told that

    a) it could never happen

    b) you are lying

    c) something else caused it.

    Personally, If you were using a charger other than Apple Branded, its possible. There are some cheap ones out there...

    Now if you are for real, I am curious that the phone wasn't damaged.

    Reading thru this, the temp had to be > 160 degrees to cause an instantaneous blister.

    Assuming this is all true, turn it off and take it to Apple immediately.

    Just curious, why do you have your location in a google maps link at the end of your post?

    I do have a hard time believing it was hot enough to instantly blister your skin. That's a first or second degree burn. Lol

    Yeah, my phone gets really hot too when I do that, but it's never burned me

    I'm going to be the "B" guy.

    When you're doing that much with your phone, it's going to get warm. My phone does it, any electronics will do it. My MacBook Pro's do it - they get even hotter than my phone.

    However - you're being BURNED to the point of blisters on your phone, it would have stopped working or started on fire. No doubt.

    Here is where I say PICS or GTFO!

    The OP claimed it formed a blister on them. Pics of that would suffice.

    But that blister could be from anything... And it could not even be his blister. It could be a friend/family's or off the net :eek:

    I got "burned," once, by a cell phone: the Sanyo SCP-6000. The phone generated tons of heat and was way too thin to dissipate it properly, and I had been on a 45 minute call.

    That said, I didn't get a blister. It was something more like a very mild sunburn. It got way too uncomfortable to hold before it got warm enough to cause real damage.

    It's already healed, and I do understand the skepticism. My concern is that it will end up like one of those exploded ones where the batterys blew the glass to pieces.

    Don't u understand that in order for the phone to be so hot that it burned ur skin like a "hot stab", the phone would not be working. It would be fried. And if u are telling the truth, take it to apple and have them look at it. There would for sure be evidence if it got that hot.

    A burn blister doesn't heal that fast!
