Still on the fence about iPhone Switch
I am very close to saying the hell with it and switching to the ubiquitous iPhone. I have done some research and found some posts that address an over-heating issue that some phones have. Is this something that I should take into consideration or for the most part do people not have problems?
I would like to know if anyone is experiencing any problems with overheating, battery issues, etc. on and 3G s phones. I really appreciate the feedback!
I just want to make sure and do my proper research...

i've had no overheating issues with mine. i did with my 3G while using att navigator, but not since. as far as battery, no lies, it sucks. i dont care what anyone says, it sucks. the only way your battery will last a long time is to turn everything off the phone that makes it worthwhile. the solution of course is just to make sure that you charge it at least once during the day and you should be good to go. i've used mine moderatly today, 3hours 18 minutes of usage, and 9 hours 50 minutes of standby. my battery is at 52%. thats not terrible. but when you first get it the battery will suck. you'll be downloading apps, playing with them, and its gonna drain! all in all though, the iphone is a great device and i highly reccomend it!

Sometimes my 3GS a little bit 'warm' but it is not a problem for me. The battery though has an issue. Seldom the 3GS can last a day without charging. However, I have accepted it as normal and decided to kept a charger each at home and in the office and a spare in my backpack. Problem solved!

Go for it. I changed in October 2009 and do not regret my decision one bit. I love my 3GS iPhone. The battery most of the time lasts me the day and I charge it at night. If i am out and going to be using the phone a lot for web browsing and phone calls I put my Mophie Juice Pack Air on and I'm all set for the day. My phone gets warm at times when I have been on the phone for a while but not hot.

I switched back in early November 09 from the BB Storm (more like a drizzle) and Verizon to the iPhone. One of the best decisions I have ever made. It is hands down the best phone I have ever owned and used. No problems at all with over heating. I wish the battery was a little better, but I had battery issues with my Storm, and the Rzar previous to that. When a phone is this much fun to use, you are going to drain the battery... so switch and enjoy!
