    Default My phone feels like an oven

    Finally contacted Sprint about my heat issue with the phone. Mind you I got it on the 21st of June and it has been working fine. All of a sudden they switched on the 4g/LTE in my area and my phone goes beserk. It won't hold a signal, the 3g/4g icon keeps switching back and forth, and it is too hot to touch. It's constantly looking for a signal but can't find one. I was told to just leave it on the regular CDMA mode, but it is still doing weird things. To make a long story short. They are sending out a new device today. Just curious to know if anyone one else has a heat issue or signal issue after the turning on of 4g/LTE?

    NO, but if it gets to hot just turn it over and make lunch.

    This is the message I got yesterday afternoon. It was hooked into my car dock which was on my dashboard. Even though the air conditioning in my car was going full blast the 95 degree southern California afternoon won out. I unhooked from dock which stopped charging and protected it from the direct sun light and all has been good since.
