    Temperature (overheating) may adversely affect your BB's internals, thus affecting performance. As far as cell reception, I think that may be a different situation based on your carrier and coverage. It would be a first to hear of temperature affecting reception...at least for me.

    Extreme temperatures affect the operation of electronics, so yes, it would affect the unit's ability to get a good signal, until it returns to with "operational temperatures". According to the Blackberry website, the operational temperatures are betweem 14 and 122 F(-10 and 50 C).

    I have carried my BB in my outside jacket pocket in 20F temps, and I have noticed it is slows down a lot and the signal strength is reduced. I have been told that it is best to keep electronic devices in an inside jacket pocket, closer to the body for warmth.
