    i have had this problem with my eris a few times and have found something that gets the battery back into a normal charging mode. yesterday was the second time i saw this problem i was using wireless tether and my phone got to about 47C and there after the battery drained and died within an hour even with it plugged into the wall. i tried a battery pull and a reboot (i was trying to stay away from a factory reset) and neither helped, it took an hour to go from 0% battery to 3% which is just crazy. then i got into my ROM Manger (paid version so it has all the extra stuff too) and fixed all my promissions i then powered down my phone did a battery pull for a minute or two to make sure it was fully off and then restarted it. it then started to charge normally. i know i have to way to fix the overheating issue but i know once the battery starts draining it doesnt really wanna charge again or stay charged. last time i had this problem it took two days to get my phone to 97% battery and then after being unplugged it died within 6 hours. so if your phone is rooted and you have ROM Manger or some other program that allows you to fix all the permissions on your phone then you should give it a try next time you get an overheating and battery drain problem to see if it will help anyone other then me. i dont know how many people this will help or who will find it helpful but i figured its a step in some direction for this issue that seems to be becoming more wide spread.

    The battery is naturally suppose to heat up when charging. I'm thinking you have a bad battery. On my G1 my battery lasted for about 10 mins then it would go dead.

    I'm not rooted, I'm a sorry loser running 2.1v3 leak. My phone will also overheat when USB tethering using PDAnet and downloading a lot of data.

    if your phone is rooted and and you have ROM Manger then you can have it fix all your permissions. it helps get the phone a little less buggy. and then isnt an issue with the phone charging it happens when its unplugged or not and yes i know batterys are made to get hot well charging but not 50c..... thats crazy and no where near a safe area for the battery.

    You are right JohnnyBoy and thanks for your useful suggestion. For the others above, your phone absolutely will overheat when doing heavy tethering or for a long period of time. I hit 50 degrees yesterday.

    Paul Kpolek (sp?) gave a suggestion in the OC/Cooling thread. Flip the phone over, take the battery cover off, and place a cola or beer bottle/can on top of your battery. Make sure you wipe down the bottle so that it doesn't sweat on your battery. I haven't tried it, but he says that he keeps his phone down into the mid 20's to 30 degrees. Take a look at that thread.
