    had my Evo in Stand-by mode. It turned itself on (unknowingly to me) and my battery became extremely hot. Had to remove battery. Thought it was going to burst in flames. Waited awhile, replaced battery and so far no problem. What should I do?

    Any issue with the battery is a serious issue. If there is a problem with the battery getting too hot, there could be a short inside, and worst case it could explode or catch fire. I would definitely take it to a sprint store to get a new battery and/or phone.

    If you root it and install the android-wifi-tether app (the new one 2.14pre which actually works properly) - it will show you the temperature of the battery. There may be other apps which also do this but I'm not aware of any.

    Yea, LiPo batteries can be quite "explosive" if incorrectly charged.

    Oh, yeah - I'm going root a brand new phone just for that singular purpose. :rolleyes:

    Bypass the root suggestion and drive post haste to the nearest Sprint store for service!!

    you don't have to root your evo to know the battery temperature, watchdog is a free app and you dont need to root the phone to get it. But till I haven't hear of a real solution to the battery getting hot, good somebody stop making comments and come up with a solution other than taking it back to Sprint, anybody can think of that.

    If the battery is hot enough that is is uncomfortable to touch, I am of the opinion that finding out exactly how hot it is is a moot point. Too hot to touch means it is too hot, PERIOD.

    Did you leave the phone in a car or sitting on the dashboard? If the phone starts to overheat you will get a series of LED lights blinking at you. Were you able to see the temperature of your battery before pulling the battery? The app Battery Indicator gives you the temperature of the battery.

    Just my opinion, if your phone was too hot in order to touch then the phone could have been damaged internally due to the heat.
