Does your Torch 9800 heat up and drain battery fast while talking?
I had about 70% battery when I talked on a call for about 37 minutes. When it ended, I checked on the battery and damn, it's on RED with almost dying.
Only for 37 minutes talk time, it reduces 70% of the battery?
My OS is 188.8.131.526 (Bundle 3049). The second version of the latest version which I think it's stable enough so I don't upgrade the OS.

I have just noticed a similar situation with my 9800 Torch. It has about 70% battery and the back of the phone gets very hot (not the battery, mind you) and the battery meter just drops to red in a matter of minutes. I have tried switching batteries, but it still happens. Is my phone pooched? It is a little over 2 years old. Any ideas would be appreciated.

This is definitely a battery issue. It used to happen to me all the time especially when taking pictures, it would drop from about 70 to 10.
I would replace the battery.
Have you tried resetting and updating the OS @BioDave 1955
