    Exclamation Overheating already

    ok so I just bought my ascend 2 two days ago and im already having issues with the phon overheating. I turned off the features that werent necessary (gps, backround, live wallpaper, sync, brightness i put at minimum, i even turned off wifi and data.) The phone still overheats. I had it on yesterday for 5 miniutes just looking thru the specs n files and the temp hit 58.. Im not sure what to do so any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You may have a defective phone since the A2 is clocked @399Mhz out of the box and I know of a few ppl running them @600hz with no issues.

    ^^ What PG said. Take it to a corp store and politely ask that they replace it under factory warranty. This close you your purchase date , they should swap it for free. They will of course need to duplicate the problem.
    Good luck.

    Hey at least it's not 299! and at least it can be rooted and stepped up. The phone is amazingly snappy for being set at 399mhz. That really surprises me.

    <--- always been happy with my Droid X

    <--- even happier with it now that I found MIUI. I've been packing this X around since last September and this rom makes it seem like I just got a brand new phone. It's too bad none of Cricket's phone will ever likely experience MIUI.

    Well the 399 was told to me by a A2 owner that used setcpu to set it at 600. My reply to him was 'really??' lol

    I have CM74DX on my DX, didnt like the iphonish feel of MIUI.

    I don't understand why people are complaining about the battery life if the speed is so low. I thought the lower the processor speed the better the battery life? Is it 399 Mhz even when the screen is on? Why was it advertised that it is 600 Mhz?

    I had the video... It runs at 600 mhz and as low as 245mhz. This was a stock Ascend 2. Come on guys...

    Please check the forum and post there before PMing me. I have over 674 unread PMs due to the fact that they are issues which should have been addressed here.

    If you need to buy something from (Ebay), please use this LINK every time and support the forum!
