      1. Thank you. But let me tell you more about this heat. My sister who gave me this phone had no heating problem. Then I reset it, put my SIM card in, I found that it’s like burning my hand at the sim card slot and the battery just run out like 1% every minute. I discharge the SIM card and the phone works fine again. Do you think resetting may cause any changes of software? my sister’s SIM card worked normally.
        I don’t used cellular data. It’s always off. I hope you would help me.

        1. Yes you can perform a factory reset and see if it helps. But make sure you are creating a backup of your important data before that.

          1. I mean I did the reset that causes this problem. I’ll try it again or put another SIM card. Thank you for your help. Have a great day.
