Will just massive FTP'ing cause a phone to burn up?

    Some guy on reddit is claiming that he burned though a phone every so many weeks due to heavy usage. If I use it just to FTP for a 5-6 a day everyday of the month should I be okay? I have the Galaxy Note 3 phone btw.

    I'm considering upgrading to the unlimited plan with t-mobile($30/month) since I've been researching it and found that people have been able to get as high 300GB/month using it without getting throttled. So far its the only cost effective way I've found to backup some more files from my computer which only gets about 4Mb/s upload.
