    Have you installed any chat apps? Kik, in my experience, eats battery faster than it can take a charge. I don't have any experience with that device, but I will say to take a look at what background tasks are running. Chances are, you don't need any of them to run. And kik is the devil on windows phone.

    things to try:
    switch on and off.
    if that doesn't work:
    soft reset: hold down volume and off button until it gives a buzz (about 10 seconds)
    if that doesn't work do a hard reset:
    hold down volume, off, and camera button

    warning it might get stuck during the the hard reset, so before doing that download the nokia care suit and find out what your firm ware is and download that so you can recover.

    hopes this helps :)

    If phone is heating up, then something is using your phone!! Mine heats up quite alot if I whatsapp for an hour or something like that... Do check for background processes. Normal messaging(SMS) shouldnt do anything actually. So, it's something else :)
