This phone doesn't seem to get that hot to me. My old phone would get very hot, not warm, but HOT! It had pretty much the same location for the SD card slot, and it didn't cause any problem. I haven't put my card in this phone after reading all these posts. I think I'm going to put one of the cheap 2gb cards I have laying around in here and see what happens before I put my good card in. I really don't think the heat is the problem.
