I'm about to return my third iPhone 4 to Verizon for the same problem. They work just great for about 3 or 4 months and then seemingly overnight the battery life goes to pot and the phone gets so hot I can't keep it in my shirt pocket.

Am I just unlucky or is this happening to anyone else?

I assume you've tried power-cycling the phone? Sometimes removing / re-inserting the battery is in order, as a power cycle won't necessarily cure all ills.

Also, are you using the original charger? For the first time ever, this current crop of devices is very sensitive to getting proper charging current. Standard USB spec is 500mA, which isn't enough to charge your device. If you aren't using the original, manufacturer-supplied charger, that's fine -- just make sure you're using a name-brand charger like Cellet, Griffin, or one of the other phone manufacturers, rated for at least 1 amp (1000mA).

You might look over on the howardforums or macrumors. To have three separate iphones start to get hot after 3-4 months seems strange.

I don't have the problem with my iPhone, but then I've used only the provided charger. Quick chargers can kill batteries rather quickly. As for the heating issue, never experienced that either.

Whenever I notice my phone or ipod touch getting warm in my pocket, I check for an app I may have left running, such as navigation, Angry Birds, or a web browser. If I don't find anything obvious, I reboot. Works every time for me.

No, I've actually have had zero problems with my iPhone. Not sure why yours keep acting up though.
