    Default Question about Water Damge Indicator Stickers

    Hey guys, I'm new to this forum and just had a quick question about the 9700's water damage indicator stickers.

    So, I dropped my phone outside my work and found it ~30mins later, in the rain. The phone was still running when I found it and I quickly turned it off and removed the battery. After it dried I turned it on and kept getting this "JUM 102 Error". I do have extended warranty but it does not cover water damage, I checked the stickers on the battery and the one on the phone, they are completely white.

    I am just wondering if there is another water damage sticker within the phone or is there just those 2? Thanks

    Hi Folks,
    I'm a little confused about the water damage stickers. The only two things that I can find that even vaguely resemble a sticker on the battery and phone are shown in the two pictures. They are both as white as it possible for them to be. Am I correct in understanding that white is the "failure" mode? This phone has never been near water, never been wet, never even been in a sweaty pocket and it is working perfectly. If I have some problem in the future, are they gonna deny my replacement request because these stickers are white?
    Or do I have this backwards and white is the "OK" color and they change when wet?
    TIA.....

    Yes those are the water damage stickers, they are supposed to be white, when they get wet, they turn red.

    Then there the matter of knowing it's water damaged, regardless of the color of the LDIs, and exchanging it anyway.

    Also - did you get your extended warranty from your carrier? Typically that is bundled with device insurance. Worth looking into for sure.

    Yes those are the two on the outside BUT rumor is that there is 1 additional water damage sticker inside the phone.

    Can anyone confirm this?

    And they turn pink when wet, as far as i know.

    When I took my phone apart, once I removed the bottom black piece below the keyboard, I found a very small circle sticker on top of one of the holes for the screws that keep the keyboard in. On the bottom left just under the "alt" button.

    that's a tamper sticker. there was one on my 9300 as well, to the right of the battery covering the Torx T6 screw. if it is punctured it voids warranty.
