    Hello

    I have noticed that my charge heats up while plugged into the USB port. This happens if I am playing streaming audio while being charged but not otherwise. It gets really hot.

    Also, I have noticed that it discharges faster than it charges while playing streaming music, in the sense that the total charge is less than that before starting charge.

    Never had these problems with my blackberry. What a bummer.

    Usb ports only put out 500 mA. Your wall charger provides about twice that much current.

    thats true, the charger cant keep up with high streaming demand.
    i have been taking the snap on case off to help dissipate heat and dont lay it flat on anything. if you can help the heat get away from the battery it helps charging

    Something to note:

    Using the stock AC wall wart adapter and streaming
    Youtube (in 480p) my phone got pretty hot, ala the olden days
    of my Moto Droid 1 when it was overclocked...
