    Both RAZR have same amount of space inside...none. and both batteries put out same voltage ...maxxs battery being 3000mah has zero to do with heat. It just can run longer than tha RAZR. Something is using power, which makes heat. But if you can't hold yer maxx ...something is wrong.

    Data offload is like the traffic cop in your phone. It tries to ensure that things run smoothly. Its main purpose is to make sure the processor is giving the higher level functions the processor use they require. At least that's what I've been told.

    Hope this helps?

    OK, so if the "traffic cop" is working overtime, there must be a LOT of unruly traffic! My phone's "streets" must be completely empty or I have tremendously courteous apps :)biggrin:) as I've NEVER seen that service running.

    Clearly there is SOME sort of app conflict or something installed that is a total hog. By the way, did the OP say something about Virus Scan? I don't use one and I've never had good results with a running Virus utility. I ONLY use stand-alone Virus scans that work when I ask them to and aren't there any other time. Norton on Windows PCs is the WORST! I wonder if the problem is the Virus Scanner?

    Lol, I thought that if it was the "traffic cop" it should be fired lol. I see this pop up every now and then, but not ever in the battery use area.

    So I just went into applications and it says this app changes data connectivity. Perhaps it stores wifi passwords as well?

    To see what would happen, I cleared data and did a force stop. Nothing has changed or happened that I'm aware of. All of my passwords and bookmarks and Wi-Fi passwords ate all there. So idk?

    Overheating on Droid

    I have also had over heating issues on all of my Razr Maxx phones. I have had 3 phones in 2 months and they all have been over 105-115 degrees and uncomfortable to hold. The last one I got as soon as I first powered it up it was at 100 degrees. It had been in shipping box and an airconditioned room and had never been turned on, it should have been in the mid to low 70's. I only use one app at a time. If i go online or on facebook, or on Pandora, I stop the application as soon as i am done with it.

    i have had all the phones set to turn data off when screen is locked and screen time out in 15 seconds. I always toggle GPS and background data off, and keep the display turned really low. I have the Task manager set to turn off all apps 2 minutes after screen is timed out and I have used an advanced taske killer, It still gets uncomfortably hot. A phone should not be getting that hot.

    What are people who do not have over heating issues doing different than the people who have had over heating issues? I am waiting for my 4th phone in the mail and i am getting tired of going through so many phones. I dont ask for new phones they just keep sending me a new one when I tell tech line of my problems. There has to be a reason these phones are getting hot, I do not buy the excuse that these phones are "small and have big batteries" and sealed with water resistent nano technology trapping in the heat. If they can't build a phone that doesnt over heat then they need to fix the problem. I love my Droid and its an awesome phone! It just gets too hot!

    Ok, so an update after ICS - the phone has been holding steady at 95F even during heavy 4G LTE browsing. It was getting hotter, but after background data is shut off it works great!

    You do have to deal with an annoying "warning" in your status bar after you shut background data off though.

    Anyone else having issues/improvements with ICS?

    ics

    Ok so i got the ics update right around june 29th. I had issues getting the backup assistant fixed but finally figured out how to fix it. Other than that the ics system for the most part its very nice. I have done issues with it being slow and unresponsive opening up certain apps our using Swype text. It still runs around 102 degrees during heavy use but i find it only does that when trying to search for 4g lte. All in ask I'm happy but i wish it didn't get warm to the touch. Time will tell:blink:

    The temp of the device is really the fault of the processor... the temps it reaches are pretty astonishing.. but the device shuts down before potentially dangerous temps..
