    Milestone Worry

    After overclocking to 1.2ghz the milestone works like a wonder.. quick and more better..
    i overclocked in stages example 600mhz 1day couple days later 800mhz and 1ghz and then 1.2ghz.. but what im concerned about is the heat.. the more i use the apps and other stuff.. e.g youtube.. normal browsing.. texting so n so.. it gets hot and scares me.. lol i have Setcpu to see the temp.. it reads 37.0 c (98.6 f).. but it goes up to 105.6 F sometimes.. i'll put the phone down for like 10-20 mins it goes down to 86.0 F again.. could anyone tell me if this is normal..!

    any advice would help! thanks

    If you use it for longer periods it will get hot, especially when using WiFi or 3G.

    As for using it at 1.2GHz I think you could easily go down to 1GHz and work very smoothly too.

    ...ya, that's pretty much why I stay at 800MHz. I know we can overclock higher, but being in Canada and chained to a Telus 3 year contract I can't afford to take any chances bricking my phone. I still find it plenty fast and smooth...though perhaps I wouldn't be considered a power user by any stretch.

    What's the battery life at those screaming speeds?
