Hi moizali


Welcome to BlackBerry Support Forums



Remove your Media Card and see if it reboots . If problem persists then try to Boot your device on Safe Mode and notice if it reboot or heats up :


KB17877How to start a BlackBerry smartphone in Safe Mode


If those problem does not appear on safe mode then you have to look at your application list , a 3rd party application may be responsible for the issue , Uninstalling that may help.


Regarding device heating up,  are you closing all application correctly, are you sure that no apps are running in the background , If we press the menu key for a few seconds  it will pop up a screen which will show all running programs in the background ,generally five will always there ( Home, BBM, Message,Phone , Browser ) you can always look if any other apps. are running in the background.


If above doesn't help then you can always perform a OS Reload , which is indeed a good step. It will remove any software glitch . To do that first do a backup of your device using Desktop Software then follow this Knowledge Base :

KB03621 : How to Reload BlackBerry Device Software and application using BlackBerry Desktop Software


After reload don't import any applications from your backup , you can install a fresh copy by visiting BlackBerry World . Restore only your Contacts and calender entries. Try it and let us know of your progress.
