    I installed the 2.0.1 update the other night when it was first made available. Since then, I've noticed that, after a few minutes use, both the screen and the back of the phone begin to fell fairly warm. If I'm browsing with Safari or playing a game for any extended period, it gets particularly noticeable. I had never noticed this before the update.

    Anyone else notice this? There's no Apple store anywhere near me, but should I contact them or AT&T about it?

    I installed 2.0.1 the other day and now my iPhone is heating up after a few minutes of basic usage. My activities on the phone and the settings I use aren't different from what they were before installing 2.0.1.

    Sounds like it's a bad power management bug...

    You can find the 2.0 firmware online, download it, and then click Restore in iTunes while holding down option (on a Mac) or shift (on a PC). However, you won't be able to restore from a backup because it'll have been created with 2.0.1 and iTunes doesn't let you use backups from newer versions on downgrades.

    Wrong. What I explained above allows you to revert.
