I am on my second BB Curve and am having the same problem. It gets very hot and drains the battery. The first one was replaced because US Cellular said it appeared to be a problem with some of the Curves. However, it is happening again with my new one. Anyone else having this problem? I don't have any unusual apps running in the background so that can't be it.

Press the Menu key > Switch Applications... what do you have running in the background?
Is the browser closed or open to an active website?

I do tech support and warranty for a major US provider (which will remain unnamed for neutrality reason), and can tell you its one of 3 things, charger, phone, or battery. Typically witha warranty replacement, you are still using the same battery or charger. in this case, i would lean more towards battery... unless it gets really hot while charging aswell. let us all know!

Both my wife and I had the same problem. Phone got dangerously hot, and wouldn't respond to the charger cable anymore when plugged in. The phone was just dead. Mind did it 33 days after I got the phone and her about 62 days after. Verizon replaced both phones free of charge with no question. Needless to say I was annoyed...and am just wondering when the replacement will have the problem.

I got a Curve 8530 in February from US Cellular and only recently started having similar issues. Would you recommend trying to get a new phone, or just a new battery?

as was previously asked press menu key>switch applications.
the only time my Curve gets hot is when I have 2 large group chats going while doing other things.
Havent had a problem and I have had it almost 2 years

My BB Curve 8530 overheated this week. Charged the battery, unplugged the charger, left it over night, next morning phone very warm, took battery out, too hot too touch. Let it cool off, recharged it, died in about an hour. US Cellular replaced the battery, phone still warm, did an upgrade that is suppose to fix the problem (apparently this is an issue they are aware of) If that didn't work they told me they would replace my phone. It hasn't worked so I will be getting a new phone. All under warranty, but a pain none-the-less.

I just got my first BB and it overheated while it was OFF . It also drained the battery. Are these things junk or what ? Whats the deal ? This thing could burn someone ! I AM NOT HAPPY.

I would definitely go back to your cell phone provider. They know that these phones have problems and should replace it with no problem. They went good on a replacement and my new one so far is not having any issues. Good luck.
