IPhone 3G – Take the Heat Or Not ?

Perhaps after receiving several complaints from iPhone users living in areas with sweltering climates, Apple decided to make the iPhone 3G a little proactive in this department. To prevent the iPhone from being used constantly in high temperature areas, which might lead to it not working at all, Apple has put in place measures that kick in when the phone starts becoming too hot for its own good.

The iPhone 3G includes a temperature warning screen (detailed in an Apple support article) and once it appears, the iPhone can only be used for emergency calls and is otherwise completely disabled until it is allowed to cool down. Apple recommends turning it off and moving it to a cooler environment for a while before turning it on again. Luckily, many residents of places such as the U.S. and Canada will never see this screen at all.
