Yup. Its just silly to expect a company to keep replacing phones because of water damage. Yet, lots of people think the whole wet sticker thing is excessive. Without it, they would be taken advantage of left and right. The alternative would be to increase prices overall to make up for all the money lost in wet devices, so these stickers keep the prices low.
