    I was at one of my contractor plants today working in an area that doesn't get cell coverage of any kind and I noticed my Droid was warming my leg up. I keep it with no case or cover in my pants pocket. Is it possible that the heat was coming from it constantly searching for a signal? When I took it out the battery app said 90.1.

    TIA

    It has been reported in some other threads that no signal causes heating from the constant searching for a signal. I wouldn't get too worried about it. Seems to be normal behavior.
