    The liquid indicator is not on the battery. It's on the phone.

    are you new to blackberrys or new to life?
    Liquid = "existing as or having characteristics of a liquid; especially tending to flow; "water and milk and blood are liquid substances"

    Also keep in mind that high humidity areas can play with indicators

    usually until they spill out of their respective containers - glass, cardboard and humans. then they curdle, freeze, boil and evaporate. blood starts to smell real bad in a 100+F apartment, when it curdles after a few days....

    but i digress.

    thanks guys and gals.
    you all rock!!!

    off to Bon Jovi in Central Park!!!

    Lol, this made me laugh.

    This poster probably just thought that "liquid" referred to some Blackberry term, not the literal definition of liquid.. Don't be hard on 'em. We were all newbies at one point, too.

    Anyhow, the yes the indicator is indeed on the battery. Mine has been a light pink with red x's since day one, and my phone hasn't incurred severe water damage. So, OP, you should be fine.

    Exactly what i was thinking Jen, the guy obviously thought liquid was some term that we all use. The harshness was a bit over the top after that..

    If you want to see what happens to the indicator, just run your BB though the dishwasher to get the dust out.

    J/K DO NOT try this at home or anywhere. Water very bad for phones.

    now a commercial break from our sponser.

    Mine is a red stripe, and I've had this phone for a week. I think that's normal
