Is "water damage" a scam? Is it really possible to get water damage when the phone has never been dropped in water, ever? Are these phones/BBs so cheaply made that humidity or a few rain drops causes water damage?
If you leave the phone in the bathroom while you take a shower, it will also trip the water indicators.
