    Return for a new one?

    Shouldn't be overheating to the point of causing damage. Take it in for a warranty replacement.

    end of line...

    Did you take it in? Was there any explanation for the backlight failing or did they give you a new one.

    There seem to be several complaints regarding the heat these phones generate (at times). I would be interested in finding out how Verizon handled this for you.

    It could have something to do with the dual core processor in this phone. I downloaded Temp+CPU widget which will show the current temperature of the device. I'm not sure what is a dangerous temp for a mobile device, I know desktop processors will take quite a bit of heat but thats different.

    Theoretically, they would have designed the phone to shut off when a certain temperature was surpassed. That being said, a hardware defect like a bad thermometer is always a possibility.
