Neo V heating up

Hi,

I bought a brand new Neo V last Friday.....

        I am getting a weird problem with the phone.... the back upper part of the phone is getting heated up even when the phone is on standby mode (not using the phone at all). I also tried by stopping all the sync services and most of the background services. But the phone gets heated up. Can anyone give me some solution for this.

     Any help is appreciated.

Mav.

Just remember that if you use your phone after a while it will get warm

Re: Neo V heating up

it should solve the issue, if you have a taskiller, battery/juice defender or antivirus it could be constantly running, thus heating up your phone, you do NOT need any of those apps at all
