I think my original post was mis-leading... My phone is not water damaged. I am/was paranoid however, that my inexplicably bricked 8830 would be denied warranty replacement (it's 20 days old) due to the moisture/water indicators having been activated. I have, as I mentioned in the OP, read about people's indicator strips going off from humid cars, showers, etc... So I wanted to make sure I wasn't SOL, so to speak, when I go take my phone in
So, with my original post cleared up, does it look like either strip has been activated? The one on the phone is pure white, and as we've beat to death, the battery's strip has a red line through it - Personally, I think it might be pregnant...Isn't that what the red stripe on the test means?
