    Blackberry made a flop with all OS7 devices!!! They all overheats and I've loaded countless upgrades (OS) and nothing helps! I think only the 9900/9930 doesn't overheat, yet it too drains battery like .

    Update the os!
    @mzway, software is never perfect and always in motion.
    Os7 is smooth and never experienced overheating, maybe get it out of the sun?
    Battery life too is still 1,5 - 2 days so still acceptable

    I found out that switching to 2G network solves the battery draining problem... Now getting 10-14 hours! Can't find a solution for over heating though.

    Even the Leaked OS solves it. It's already released. Why wait for official.

    It's your usage not phone. Check your settings, use display at lower brightness, remove unwanted apps. Switch of features like wifi, bluetooth, etc. Use 2g when possible instead of 3g.

    Exactly, do these steps and you should gain substantial battery life. Also don't set applications to automatically refresh, there's no need for it and it wastes battery life, just manually refresh. Lastly, run as little apps as possible in the background. Open when necessary then just close. Not only does this save battery life but it also prevents
    unnecessary processor usage and avoids overheating.

    SIDE NOTE: After you do a reboot or battery pull, once the Bold 9790 Boots up it starts indexing all the "Universal Search" results automatically, so when you type anything it can find your results fast. During this process of indexing not only will it heat the phone up but will also take a little bit of a chunk of battery life (i guess depends on how much u got on ur phone/memcard) However it doesn't take too long to index, but i would recommend having a charger connected for a reboot and keep connected for sometime after it boots up. The phone should cool down and stay cool after as well.

    The heating issue is usually caused because of faster processors and very slim designed phones now days. My buddy has an iphone4S and i know when he starts playing games and stuff it gets pretty warm. I have an iPod touch 4 and it also gets pretty warm near the top portion.

    Well i don't get phenomenal battery life, probably because i use my phone a lottt, but with these tweaks and settings with moderate usage you could get 12 - 14 hours easily (i have before). It all depends on how much you use your phone. if you have OS 7.1 then make sure "battery saver" is Always On.

    Basically what you should do is backup your phone, then do a fresh install of OS 7.1 with AppLoader (it should backup and restore your data anyways), uninstall programs u really dont use. Then take it from there, its not as big a hassle as it may seem. I've had OS 7.1 installed for a while now and it runs prefect with great battery life.

    Seems I might be a victim of this problem as well, phone running warm to the touch today (usually quite cold), and the last quarter of charge went very quickly. After fully charging around an hour ago the battery level is already down below 50% & that's without even using the phone.

    Should add that my usage hasn't changed at all so there shouldn't be any reason for this sudden battery usage.

    Edit: After a full charge it's fully discharged itself in a couple of hours with minimal usage. Strange that it should suddenly start doing this.

    there are plenty of threads that describe this issue & the solution, the thread on this handset forum about the OS7.1 Telenor Norway also has the solution. Please delete the 2 vendor.xml files from your computer to begin with.

    I think OP was reporting some sudden heating up problem, which he did not experience before. I never experienced it but I did sense some warming up when rebooting etc.
    I do not think the battery is a cause but rather a consequence (of busy CPU).
    When the CPU at overwork, both CPU and battery heat up rather quickly and drain the battery real quick.
    Sounds like some app might be lurking or hanging behind the scene.
    I thought the battery pull would cure this, but check which apps are running. Are you using some exotic apps?
    Press the menu button (left to the trackpad) for a second or two to see what's running.

    I can confirm the 9790 does overheats from time to time, some people may not experience such issue not because of they have better devices but because they use different apps.

    Mostly overheat occurs when you have one or more of those newer game applications run in the background.

    Whenever you feel you phone is getting warm, check what is running in the background [hold the blackberry button for about 5 sec], and switch to the application and close them properly.

    Also close GOOGLE Maps if you see it runs in the background, it eats a lot of battery too.

    My experience with overheating:

    It happened to me twice since I had the phone (nearly two months ago). The device, specially the battery starts to overheat more and more, and then the battery starts to drain very very fast.

    My first time I shut down the device and take the battery off for a while (it was REALLY HOT ) and then put it again and seems that everything was OK.

    Next day, I wake up and unplug my bold from charger at 8 AM, went to office and when I realized (cause I didn't use the phone that morning) at 11 AM had just 5% of battery...

    Never happened to me again and I haven't done anything specially for not having the issue again. For me, is a strange mystery...

    I will report more info if it will happens to me again. Hopefully I'm very happy with the device and with the 7.1 official release and with no background actualization for FB nor Twitter it last me more than it use to be.

    Cheers!

    That crazy, I just got this phone today after upgrading from a Curve 3G, at it heated up like a volcano. Though I wasn't using at special applications, plus I had my settings altered like I normally do.

    It's odd, I will try some of the steps that have been mentioned here and see what happens.

    Thanks.

    Try the last leaked OS (7.1.0.402), after some battery pulls it works really good!

    Yesterday my battery lasts from 8AM till 10PM which was imposible with the 7.0 OS.

    Now, it just overheats when I use WiFi Hotspot for a long time (like one hour or more).

    Default Overheating!!!

    My9790 could be used to fry an egg only had it about 2 months, the first went back for the same reason. It only seems to happen when I try to put a memory card in. Bit useless really

    This also worked for me. It turned out that there was something wrong with my media card that the system had to work double. Hence, maximizing the device itself resulting to it overheating.
