    So as some of you might know, it snowed here in Indianapolis. Well I was out side talking in the snow on the new Storm and some snow has seemed to have gotten into it. Now my screen looks all cloudy. I'm assuming moisture has gotten into it, it works fine, but looks awful. Here's a pic. Any suggestions?

    LOL..."Seems to have gotten into it" Looks like you droped it in the snow to me! Thats more than a few flakes! Give it time to dry out. What does the moisture indicator on the battery look like?

    Suggestions? Hope it dries out and keep an eye on your moisture indicator.

    Do you have a friend at your local VZW store? You might need some help with a replacement.

    If the liquid damage indicator hasnt been ruined then you may be able to do a replacement.. just wait for the screen to evaporate before you try.

    The moisture indicator is still intact (thank God), so I might head on down to the local VZW and see what they can do... Honestly it looks like the screen is dirty from behind because all the buttons stand off of the cloud. Doesn't make sense I know, but honestly I feel like if I could pop the screen off and wipe it, it would be good as new.

    Try giving it a few good puffs of canned air around the seam of the screen. I did this with an old phone I had with the same problem.

    So went to Verizon today, talked with a sales rep (who posed as a tech rep) and was promptly told I would need to file a claim, although my indicators are dry as a bone. I argued why, he went to the tech rep who was busy w/ a customer said "What's your opinon?" response "Water". Funny seeing how it is freakin dry. Anyway, gonna try canned air when I get home... doubt it will work, but I've already filed a claim... There goes my $50 rebate.

    Is your factory screen film off? Could be the water got under there and its a big bubble?

    Last night I swore up and down that I had a series of 3 dead pixels that I couldn't wipe off, but I [finally] took that film off and it was something somehow caught in/under that.
