iPhone 3GS White has overheating problem

In the past there have been reports of iPhone handset overheating, and the problem doesn’t seem to have been fixed with the new iPhone 3GS.

An article on nowhereelse states white iPhone 3GS owners are now reporting overheating during a period of using GPS and 3G which results in decolourisation of the handset.

Obviously no one wants to walk round with an iPhone 3GS that looks scorched, so this problem does need looking into quickly. Anyone with a white iPhone 3GS experienced the same problem? If so feel free to drop us a line.

    Bottom line it comes off with a little bit of alcohol. Granted technology today especially Apple should have dealt with this problem by now, it should not happen but its not permanent, mine cleans right off with no problem. It only over heats if people are careless with it. You don’t use the ipod, then the video camera, then call someone, then surf the net, and then play games. I usually use it for one thing at a time. No technology should be built to be used carelessly.

    has the problem been fixed and is it only when the phone is being over used or just with GPS?
    I’m getting an iPhone this Saturday and I really would appreciate some feedback.
