    My new iphone 4 sure does seem warm on the back at times. Esp after using facetime. Have other seen or reported this? Normal??

    I can't think of a single electronic device that doesn't get warm after usage. :p

    It's warm because it loves you. Become one with the technology...

    Was thinking the same.

    After just 5 minutes use it did seem quite warm in comparison to similar use on 3GS.

    yeah the longer in use it just keeps heating up...My brightness is kinda up but still that should not be an issue.

    When I set it down briefly cools quickly but then heats up again.

    I would think over time this might not be good for the phone

    I've noticed it too. It's even worse if you are using it while it's charging.

    But I've mostly gotten used to it already, it's just a little weird at first because my 3G never did anything quite like that.

    Just did facetime for about 10 minutes and it was noticeably hot. Not so hot that I would worry, however.

    Steve Jobs is doing it again! He refuses the fan like he did with the Mac 128k.

    Enough! We want the fan!!

    I am experiencing the opposite. Mine does not get as warm as my 3GS did.
