I did it for other stuff, put a bit of arctic silver on it (I heard that theres a better brand now, forgot the name) and it cooled it nicely.
    wow.. such a creative idea, but i don't want to have a try~

    Well if we are talking cheap dirty solutions.. Put the phone in a cooking pan (with noting else inside obviously) and the pan acts as a heat sink...it literally absorbs the heat and your phone stays much cooler!! I do this all the time when charding my phone at home.. Works pretty good.. Not too practical everywhere tho..

    When I worked as a tech, we used a blast of liquid from a canned air can held upside down to test for thermally intermittent components and solder joints. The caveat was that the large thermal differential generated by the -40F liquid would sometimes cause circuit traces to separate from the circuit boards and/or crack, as well as potentially damaging plastic components. So be forewarned that cooling a 150F component to -40F in under a second could cause the component, connections, or circuit traces to fail. A blast of gas is OK, but holding the can upside down for a shot of the liquid is probably not.
