Hi loganmoya


Welcome to BlackBerry Support Forums



            Sometime BlackBerry 7 devices may feel warm say a long browsing session , playing games ,countinous download or while charging ,But just make sure that no apps are running in the background or close all application properly.If press and hold the Menu 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 ) 


            Avoid using the End key to close applications as this simply minimizes the application and leaves it running in the background. Instead, press the Menu key, select the Close or Exit option to exit the application.Don't leave your Browser open when not in use.If programs run in the background it will also lead to overheating and also quick battery drainage.Check those Knowledge Base for further help :
