    Your phone overheats whenever it's tethering. Battery charging would be next to impossible because the phone realizes how hot it is and wont do it.

    Your red blinking light has something to do with a notification of some kind. Usually it's an app such as your email, heytell, or whatsapp. (from my experience) But I do think it could alternatively be your phone saying it's getting too hot.

    Try limiting your tethering to just a couple hours at a time. Give the phone a chance to cool off. If not then don't put it down on the couch or something where there's no air flow.

    Yeah I can vouch for this. I only got the red blinking light one time and it was because my battery got hot. I could feel it threw the case even. I downloaded an app that had a battery temp. as part of it and when I tether I disconnect it from my PC when it gets over 100 degrees. I've read that android phones over heat around 110 to 120 degrees. I don't chance it because it could probably screw up your phone by continualy overheating it. I also read DO NOT take your battery out if it overheats and try to cool it off manualy with a fan, freezer/fridge because it will destroy your battery. I did alot of research on this when I got my first overheating issue.
