    I just got an LG quantum a few days ago.
    It is an unlocked device(originally Bell Canada)

    I have found that the phone overheats, the temperature of the phone heats up with use.

    My current os and specs are as follows:
    OS version: 7.10.7720.68
    Firmware revision number: 1.0.8.10
    Hardware revision number: 1.1.0.0
    Radio software version: 1.0.8.10
    Radio Hardware Version: 0.3.5.0
    Bootloader version: 1.5.1.0
    Chip SOC version 0.30.2.0


    Should I send the phone back, or is there a firmware I have to flash or something?

    thanks:)

    Is it rebooting or something when it overheats? The newer lithium batteries do get warm when you use the phone.

    my quantum always gets very warm when streaming music or using the gps.
    the quantum is completely aluminum, it absorps heat from the cpu and cell and gps chips and all of those chips are really close together. This is normal for it to get alot of surface heat. Windows phone has a build-in temp sensor that will turn the phone off if it gets too hot. don't worry about it if that overheating screen isn't showing up.
    one of the reasons this happens is the OS is either running at 200mhz at idle and 1Ghz when running an app. there is no throttle.
    I hope this help.
