    Default phone gets hot when tethering, common?

    I always have this problem when I tether this phone I was just wondering if I needed to have it replaced or if it is just a very common issue.

    Its common when tethering because wifi and 3G are running simultaneously. Don't be concerned. I normally take the back off while I tether to lett the heat escape a little easier.

    Very common for it to do that. I usually take the back off and under clock to 480 MHz when I tether so it doesn't reboot.

    Do you use an app to tether? Thanks.

    before tethering, do a fresh reboot... then go to settings>apps>running apps> and stop any unneeded or misbehaving apps before you tether... its good to keep running apps to a minimum anyway to keep ram freed up... at least in my mind... this should help a bit... :-)

    Mine will crash if I'm charging and tethering at the same time. I'll try taking my back off next time i need to.

    It's absolutely common, expected to happen. Just as if you were downloading something via 3G. Even with the screen off, its still quite a load on the battery and processor.
    I believe that even closing unnecessary apps wont do much in this circumstance. Tether is tether.... your connection is working constantly( upload download)

    WiFi tether is so easy to enable on the OV. Is USB tether easy too? I'm rooted on IHO Harmonia.

    Yes..it's a common problem with this phone. I turn my data/ 3g connect off. I usually don't tether too long but mine has become hot this way. And DON'T CHARGE OFF THE COMPUTER. It will get hotter faster. Some newer PC's are low voltage use (made to be environment friendly) and won't cause it to heat up, or as fast. Older PC's or Gamers that require tons of power to run a big system will generate tons of heat themselves ,and will heat up a cell in no time. Moderation is the key!

    When I tether I don't OC over 748, since if I go over that the phone reboots.

    i use pdanet via usb on my ov. gets warm at times but never hot. i use pdanet because the tethering option in iho is for all windows versions above xp and i use xp prinarily so the built in option isn't helpful to me

    Besides the other suggestions, I turn my transmitter power way down.

    I use the app Wireless Tether
    Quite often I feel awed by and in love with Android
