since new update, phone turns it's self off

Since the new update the phone will just turn it's self off when I'm using the camera sometimes. Also, when I tried to play a video on youtube and browsed facebook. anyone else having this problem? Also, when I get a mass text, it takes forever for it to come through. When it does, it doesn't show it on the individual's thread it was trying to download from. It shows in a completely different thread that had everyone on it. Any suggestions?

I've seen the same thing. 

While I'm on battery, read the news on the internet or Facebook for about 15 minutes or more - get this "Android warning message" that briefly appears on the screen and then it shuts off.

When I get the phone back on the charger cable, my battery app (Battery Solo Widget 4.0) history tab shows the temp has gone up (sometimes over 110 degrees or more) and a sudden, precipitous drop in battery charge to zero (from 100 % to about 80% then a straight, red line to zero) - thank goodness for screenshots in ICS, guys. It's the only way I can prove I'm not nuts when I see these things happening!!!
