    Default Battery melted

    Even with a battery watcher when I picked up my my hand was on fire the back of the case was even hot and when I took out my phone and remove my battery.
    The corner was slightly melted and part if the side...

    I'm freaking out is it safe to use I swapped out my battery for one of my extra and so far no over heating. Yet I was not even on my phone when it over heated it sat in my pocket while I sat around at school

    The phone is no more then 8 months old

    Holy dont ing touch that thing it is potentially the same explosive force as a small stick of dymamite yes i said dynamite your battery is unstable!!!!" call htc tell them you got a lithium ion battery that has destablized and can explode and send them an attached email with the pic and thats clearly an htc branded battery so calk htc and get proper disposal instructions!!! Seriously those things can heat up to over 2,000 degrees and burst with a lot of force

    Well this is nice to read while at work...

    Still is there any reason for the over heat? I'm confused why the phone just sat there doing nothing and even the battery watcher didn't go off so either the battery got hot within seconds or my phone is showing its age.

    Its in the way the lithium ions are manufactured there's a film on the edges and its super thin if you keep the battery over charged or the battery is improperly manufactured eventually the film breaks down and its a chemical reaction when its still producing electricity and its going to keep heating up until boom there was a guy in Australia his lithium ion in the I phone exploded sent shards of glass into his face your lucky you pulled it out heat is an enemy of lithium ions they can and will go boom

    Well just got back from an at&t store and they said that due to the battery's water strip turned solid red so no replacement ever for the battery.

    However they did say that the inspire has one in side the dock and when I looked nothing but he swears there is one. Because of this the phone has no warranty also
    I say bull on the phone

    inside the doc?? What ing doc? The charging port?? Please elaborate I'm confused!! Wtf is that ***** talking about? There is no separate battery there is a tear down video on YouTube for a screen replacement so wtf there is no second battery and the charging do gal has a micro chip to regulate charging so it do sent over charge and when batteries get that hot it will pull moisture out of the air and make the strip go red so all that dude wants is money get ing educated when you deal with those idiots and the at&t regular store WILL NOT EVER DO WARRENTY REPLACEMENTS YOU GOTTA FIND A DAMN WARRENTY CENTER!!!! Demand to ask for a list of a warranty center and don't take no for an answer and call HTC when did you buy this phone?? Their battery warranty is 15 months not 12 if you naught this august of 2011 your still good with them
