    For the last few days my phone has been rebooting randomly. Some of the reboots have gone into the reboot loop where a battery pull is needed. I've owned the phone since launch and it has been great. The only thing that has changed the last few days was my installation of the Slingplayer app. When I watch the slingplayer, the phone does get very hot. I'm thinking this was the culprit. But I also had a reboot with the phone on the car charger and the Radiotime app running. The battery widget I have running shows the temp near 108F right before reboot. Verizon is sending me a replacement. Has this happened to anyone else?

    Yeah both those apps are serious battery and maybe cpu users.
    Others , while using heat producers in car have directed ac vent toward phone, they say it helps. They also noted in some app combo's, car charger cannot keep phone charged.

    heat is evil
