I had to take the battery out, let it cool off then put it back together before it'll turn on and when it does turn on.. my battery is down to 64% from only 20 minutes of talking.

Means it's definitely the battery, then, right? I can't believe I didn't notice that it was doing that when it got warm.
I can't say it's definitely the battery, but it sounds like a good possibility. Something isn't right, that's for sure. I've talked on mine for a couple of hours without it getting that hot. Hopefully it's just the battery and not anything more serious.
