I have had the iphone 4 32g two weeks yesterday. Today I get the "Iphone needs to cool down before you can use it" warning.

It was not hot to the touch, I had not been using it, but just picked it up to check my emails. after about 15 seconds I could use it again. talk about my heart stopping!!!

anyone else had this warning with the iphone 4?

No, but it happens if it's been left in the sun or somehow got too hot - over 35 degrees I believe.

it was resting on my laptop number keys, which was not hot at all, and in the lounge again not hot.
very worrying some people talking about bad battery if this continues for no reason, some say its a bug and apple will get around to fixing it.

I do kinda miss my 3gs

I just turned it on and it said emergency calls only, then it connected and is working perfectly.
This got me thinking, I have seen it do this several times before.

Is it dropping the network connection ?

I believe it means, for some reason, your iphone decided to go connect to another carriers network (ie: Telecom).... in which case you can only make emergency calls.

I've seen my crappy sharp phone do this also.. put it down to a funny sim card until recently.

The phone picked a strong signal from another carrier such as XT or 2degrees rather that your own provider. As you can only make emergency calls (Like 111) on somebody else's network , that's why "emergency calls only" came up. Phone then found your own network and you are back in business again.
