Default Does your Storm get hot during calls?

Please Login to Remove!

During calls longer than 10 minutes, I feel the Storm gets noticeably warmer than previous BlackBerry phones I've owned. Seems to generate heat in the area under/around the SIM card. Although I can't confirm (because I can't remember), I think this started happening after the upgrade to v4.7.0.75. I wouldn't consider it "hot", but noticeably warm. Has anybody else noticed the same?

Yes, mine gets warm as well. Every cell phone that I've owned has done this as well.

Mine gets warm as well. .65 or .75, both were warm after a few minutes of use.

Mine gets warm also, but it gets really warm when the charger is hooked up to it while talking on the phone.
