    Welcome to Android Central! When you say it gets hot when it's not even on, do you mean the phone is powered on but asleep, or the phone is actually completely powered off?

    If it's getting hot while powered on, it could be a number of issues. First thing to check is the SD card (if present). A corrupt card can cause overheating.

    If it's hot when it's off, it's probably a bad battery. If you can take the battery out, do so. If it's still hot, that's the problem. If not, there's a short in the phone.

    In any case, I'd immediately contact the seller for a refund (including shipping charges if the phone wasn't advertised as "not working").
