Unhappy there's something wrong with my bold :(

Please Login to Remove!

it just started doing this today... i see the loading icon every two seconds..

- i have no apps running
- the whole phone gets warm, especially the screen
- battery goes down even faster now

i updated to os 4.6.0.126 because of the app error 205. ever since the update to .126 i haven't got that error or any random reboots but this.

Return it!

Don't even mess with figuring out what is wrong and return it!

even mine gets warm in the back and then the lcd starts to get warm, this is after 20 mins of surfing either on 2g or 3g
Should i call rogers and ask for a swap?

Try the following:

- Switch to 2G mode only
- Switch off WLAN
- Switch off Bluetooth

Leave it like this (make sure it is unplugged from power supply or computer) for 10 minutes. Does the backlight switch off after half a minute? After 10 minutes, is it still warm?

My WLAN is off
My Bluetooth is off
I tried surfing on 2G and 3G
After 10 - 20 mins of surfing the net
The LCD gets warm, also the back and when i remove the back cover the battery is extremely hot.

My Bold also gets warm when I use it intensively. I thought yours got warm when it was idle.

No battery should be "extremely hot". No way Jose. Take it back and let them feel the heat.

Also, make sure you're not leaving unopened applications in the background. Open the menu and select "Switch Application". There shouldn't be too many stuff like Camera and Maps running in the background. (Always-running default apps include Home Screen, Phone, BlackBerry Messenger, Messages and Browser... )
