Default Blackberry 9000 heating up

Please Login to Remove!

I was listening to NBC and there was a news article about cell phones and radiation exposure while talking on the phone. The Blackberry Bold 9000 had one of the worst ratings. I notice that if i have a lengthy conversation that the phone would heat up and radiate alot of heat. Does anyone else have the same problem and is there any fix for this issue short of getting a new phone.

Updating your OS to the latest version solves this for lots of folks. It fixed it for me. I was using the original .167 for a long time, and when I finally got off my butt and updated the OS (only a minor update, to .187) my occasional heat issue vanished.
