    I want to know if I am the only one with this problem or not

    Before you send your phone off to Nokia you might as well do a factory reset first. Settings > About > Reset your phone. See if that solves the heating issue. If not, then send the phone off.

    I've never had an issue with the camera. The heating issue is from the processor...I think they might have over clocked the chip a bit? When looking at the back of your phone, the processor is to the top left of the camera, and there is a heat sink that attaches to it and spans to the right about 3/4 of the way across the phone.

    I've never had overheating until last weekend, when I installed metrotalk. I had to uninstall and re-install to get the app to work properly without the overheating but I was able to use the phone normally, cam even while it was hot.

    yes thats where my phone gets too hot !
    one thing i have noticed is if I run the camera when the device is hot it becomes more hot and battery drains faster !
    it seems the camera app running in background and is not closed !
    I have to turn off and on the phone to fix this !
