    Anytime you connect via wifi it will increase in heat. It will also heat up when watching video and playing games.

    Interesting fact -- WiFi runs on the unregulated international-standard 2.4GHz radio frequency spectrum. Know what else runs on the same frequency spectrum? Microwave ovens.

    Now you know why your phone is getting warmer.

    Popcorn anyone?

    Yeah I get aggravated when someone runs microwave when I'm on wifi. Nothing like waiting for them to get done nuking a potato.
