    Wow, I had tethering on for say, an half an hour or so. THEN, I touched my phone and it felt hot so I did that phone trick,
    *#*#4636#*#* and check battery temperature.

    It was at 47.3 C or 117F

    Seriously, I had no idea phone could get so hot. It was like the screen and everything.

    I was using PDANet free. Any ideas on how to keep it cool?

    117 is high but not bad. Worry if you get over 130-140

    Incredible's battery is rated up to 140F. If mine goes over 44.7C, I pull my case off and my back cover and leave it screen down to exhaust some heat.

    Put it on something metal to act like a heatsink

    Just download the HTC battery widget... it will tell you if you click on it.

    To the OP, my battery was up to 145F or so after sitting in a hot car all day (in the center console, mind you). 117F is nothing.
