    Hi,

    does using skype over wifi and 3g make processor work harder?

    Reason I ask is because after using skype over wifi and 3g my iPhone gets noticabely warm/hot.

    While I don't know if it will make it hotter, I'm guessing yes, since it's using processor time. It will definitely negatively impact your battery life, though maybe no more than using it with normal phone functions?

    I would think more since you're using 3G data instead of voice.
