    Here in Miami is very hot to begin with, and in the summer it gets even hotter. Anyway...I was going to the park with my little one, had the iPhone connected to my car stereo's USB cable listening to music and all of sudden I got this mag.

    Everything went off, the music went off, the signal went out and it wouldn't allow me to even access the application tray. It was completely locked. Half an hour later, here I am posting on my iPhone. I wanted to share the alert I got. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1343506039.008009.jpg

    It happens. I used to get that in a car I used to drive. In the winter, I was using a vent mount and the heater would cause this warning to popup once in a while.

    This is nothing new - your iPhone got a little too hot and so it disabled everything in order to cool down and prevent damage to the internals. I've never had this message myself but I'm sure a few people that post here certainly have.

    Yea I'm sure is nothing new and also I'm positive other people here have experienced this. In my past 4+ yrs using iPhone's I have never gotten this overheating alert until now.

    I got this message one on my 3GS and at that time I had it plugged in for music while it sat on my dashboard in direct sunlight. I remember I freaked out at first because I thought my iPhone was fried. That iPhone is still perfectly functional.

    As people begin to use their phones as GPS guides more and more, this error message will become a lot more common... After all, using as a nav up on my dash was how I first learned about the error.

    I've seen it on mine before as well.

    I'm glad this exist, although I was concerned when I first saw it. A few minutes later, it was fine.

    Happens to me every time with the 3GS and Tomtom app running for more than 3-4 hours

    Happened to my 4S when I went skiing. No big deal.

    I wonder how many other hidden alerts iOS has in cases like this one.

    Speaking of heat issues, I have noticed that on the stock iphone 4S back glass, there is a heat sink sticker that is positioned over the battery. I want to replace it with a custom colored back and noticed that the one I bought on eBay for 5 bucks, doesn't have one. Is this important or is it just there for "just in case" purposes? Has anyone had there iPhone 4S's overheat only when their back glass is replaced?
