    Only had mine a couple days but it seems just like other phones. My Treo Pro would get pretty smoking hot while plugged in and running WMwifirouter.

    For the first time ever I felt my 3GS get uncomfortably hot last week while on vacation. I was surfing the web for an extended period of time and I soon began to feel the back getting VERY hot, even through my incase slider I could feel considerable heat.

    i was playing worm for an extended period of time and notice my iphone get fairly warm thro my innocase. was too hot but just concerning

    i have also heard that having your phone in a case causes it to retain more heat since its insulated but mine has never become hot! just warm but like everyone said it is running graphically intensive programs for extended periods so im not alarmed since laptop's also heat up. some do get too hot and if your worried just have it replaced that is why i love apple they will always replace it for you.

    They do get hot! In France an Iphone exploded in the face of some bloke, has got eye dammage. An Ipod exploded in Brussels after getting hot. The European Commission today started a formal inquiry into these incidents and asked explanation from Apple.
    Apple sofar has not sent out any info. I think that this is serious and something is terribly wrong.

    Today when I got out of work I drove 20 mins to visit my gf. It was about 90 degrees (I have no ac so the windows were down) and I just listened to music on the way there. When I got there I put my iphone in my pocket and it actually hurt alittle. My phone has always been "warm" but never "HOT". Hopefully it was a one time thing because I dont think it could handle being much warmer.

    Usually gets warm after browsing the web for a while but nothing serious.

    However, today I used the GPS for about 25 minutes driving from home to my work and it got pretty HOT.

    It wasn't scorching hot but hotter than normal. I guess using GPS for a lengthy period can heat it up.

    I have a white 3gs and it doesn't get as hot as my Treo Pro. My Treo when running wmwifirouter would get pretty hot.

    My black 32 3Gs got really hot today. So hot in fact I had to take the case off. I was on a long call outside in 89 degree weather.

    Well it's been a few months since the 3gs came out. Go to an apple store and compare the screens. 3g vs 3gs. By now that oleophobic coating should be wearing off.

    Like many others have already reported, my 3GS gets barely warm - even after heavy useage.

    + me too.... Probably the coolest running "smartphone" I have ever had (though the Q9c did not get hot either).

    After playing some games it get warm but I've never had it get HOT. I've noticed with the 3.0.1 update when I open something like sms I stare at a white screen for a while before it actually opens which lags and don't like it. Noting can be perfect right?

    I got my iphone on the 12th it started getting warm & then what I would call VERY warm/bordering on hot to the touch. I called apple(no store close) they overnighted a box, I had the fedex guy wait while I put my phone in it. That , of course, was on Friday got my replacement back Monday & it's cool as a cucumber...keepin my fingers crossed it'll stay that way....also the battery life it much better on this one.

    My 3G doesn't get warm at all. I don't recall ever feeling it anywhere near hot or warm. It just stays at room temperature.
