Estou com calor - common

Sinto calor - less common

Tenho calor - even less, a bit odd.

They are all accepted.

@Armwood: Functionally, they are the same thing, but nobody really says "tenho calor." It's not grammatically incorrect, but it's not used.

Essa frase não faz sentido para o português (brasileiro, pelo menos). Nós falamos 'estou com calor'. Sinto calor e tenho calor é usado por pessoas mais antigas....

Yeah, I am a native english speaker and when people say "I am hot" it can mean they are attractive or desirable, but it can also refer to how they feel when it comes to temperature. All depends on context.

So, one of the mouseover options is 'warm', but 'I am warm' is rejected. Is 'warm' not a valid translation, then?
