    Anyone else's (stock) battery get really hot when tethering? Both wireless and wired. It seems to run really hot and I worry about the battery and phone. My friend's wireless tethering shuts down every hour or so and I'm wondering if it's because he has a case on his TB and the tethering along with the case are causing it to overheat and shut the tethering down.

    I also had it on LTE/EvDo inside a restaurant where it was getting little to no reception. The phone started getting hot (not as hot as tethering) and dropped like 6-10% of the battery.

    Is this normal or does it sound like I have a bad battery and/or phone? I have stock everything, no case, no root and the update with random reboots.

    There is actually a complaint filed with fcc saying vzw will void 700mhz purchase terms by blocking free tether apps in marketplace.
