    I'm fully aware of the antenna thing with bridging the two antennas. When I make a 10 min phone call the right side of the phone becomes Very warm, and service drops almost immediately. a 10 min phone call needed 5 call backs, when it was stated i had 4 bars of 3G and the other user had full 3G...

    I dont know if its my phone and i should bring it back to apple or if a lot of people are experiencing this.

    I just got off a 10 minute Face Time call and its as cool as can be. You might want to take it to Apple and see what they say/can do.

    Well keep this in mind. In the old model, the circuit board was bigger and more evenly distributed, dissipating heat better. In the new model, it is much smaller and does take up the entire right side. My guess is that is what you are feeling, the logic board getting hot. Should it get very hot? No. Should it get warm, yes.

    I have felt the warmness, nothing alarming in my book.

    haha either way... within the time of my post and this response i called apple tech support with 2 dropped calls, went to the apple store and had them replace the phone, gotta love that apple will replace it.

    FaceTime doesn't use cellular data, just wifi, so hopefully it won't get too hot. I know standard calls can warm up the device.

    I remember my friend once talked on his 3G for 4 hours, the phone got so hot the screen became discolored and new phone was needed. So I was going to suggest you get it changed but didn't know they would have a phone to exchange it with now.
