Question liquid Indicator

Please Login to Remove!

Got a little bit of diet coke on my Pearl, and I am curious as to where the indicator is that shows whether the phone has gotten wet or not. Thanks in advance for the help!

It's a circular white sticker with either a red dot or a line. Look for it on the back of the phone near the battery.

Ok on the battery next to the gold pins there is a little something with red Xs. Is that the only one? Shouldn't there be one for the phone as well?

Liquid indicator: there should be a little white square box to the right of the SD card on the wall of the blackberry itself... in the little black box on top of the battery... you don't have to move the battery to see it...

That means that there is no water damage. I think it turns all red when water has come in contact with it.

Default two hidden ones

there is two liquid indicators that are hidden under thefront face plate. you have to pull apart the entier phone to see them. Not worth the effort to check I know but if you send it to get fix and they charge you thats why.
