    Just bought a captivate and waiting for it to arrive. I've read a few reviews and customers who say the phone is really heating up, especially during surfing. Is this an issue or can it cause any problems with the phone? I mean, if my phone heats up, and it's normal and won't cause a problem then I don't care. If it is a hardware problem or can 'cause' a hardware problem, then that sucks. lol
    Wish I'd heard of the heat problem so I could ask this before I bought it.

    Please console me that buying the captivate was a good decision.

    Thanks for any replies.

    I love mine and it has never heated up. Maybe a little warm while charging, but hardly noticeable.

    My phone gets warm as well, and I have had it since Launch *7/18/2010*, screen can get a little warm from browsing or playing a game for an hour or so but otherwise no overheating issues. I am running perception 9.5.
