[Official] Pink Water Sensor Thread
After being contacted by my local news for a story, they are collecting information on how the iPhone's water sensor sometimes goes off, but without being dropped in water, such as from being breathed on. Now, I am trying to help out by contacting people who have had this happen to them. So those who have, please post and i'll PM you

If this was anyone else....I would think this thread was a joke
I've been lucky not to have the problem.

I never checked mine before, But I did after reading this... still white
I'm interested to hear if anyone finds a pink sensor without dropping it into water, everyone should check and report if it's pink

I have heard of a certain level of humidity causing the paper to turn, even enough moisture built up from being in your pocket. But Ive never seen it.

i have NEVER dropped my iPhone in water, yet the water sense near the bottom dock connector is pink, whilst the sensor near the headphone jack remains fine. I think it was rubbish considering i have always been careful with my product, then to find out after a month i have lost my warranty after spending $800AU on my iPhone, i thought it was ridiculous.
The response from Telstra (iPhone dealer in Australia),
"You'll simply have to buy a new iPhone, the tests from apple indicate that a part in the iPhone has been Submerged in water, and there is nothing you can do to fix it."
-Make sure that when you are going to answer a phone call that there is no sweat on your head
-Make sure that your hands are completely dry and never moist
-Make sure you don't leave an iPhone in a car, Bathroom, Toilet, as humidity could cause damage
-Make sure that whenever you use your iPhone in an outdoor environment that at no point it may start raining, as a raindrop could fall onto your iPhone and cause damage
Maybe you should just keep it in a plastic container just to be safe
and also, if you're serious about this, ill give you information if needed, i think this is something that is rediculous and should be changed especially as we are paying so much for this product.

I just checked mine and 1/3 is pink. I have never got it wet. I do keep it in bathroom a lot while i shower. Phone works just fine and holds good charge.
Did my sensor go pink while in the bathroom???

I turned the thing pink when I added too much water when putting on a screen cover... or it might have been the relaxing 20 minute shower I took that one day. :P

I have this problem and I actually need to take my iPod in for repairs. I have never gotten it wet and I'm scared they're just going to refuse it. I've had the thing less than a month and it has died. I have my appointment at the Apple store on Friday, so any help before then would be INFINITELY appreciated.

Both my sensors are 100% white but when I sent my iphone into apple for repair they sent me thishttp://i156.photobucket.com/albums/t...525_081409.png and thishttp://i156.photobucket.com/albums/t...a22/letter.jpg

hi, im from singapore, my iphone never had any contact with water but the bottom part is red/pink . My home button is nt working and Apple is nt taking it in for repair as they said its submerged in water. I have to pay S$350 for a new replacement. Anybody knows whether the liquid indicator part could be bought as a spare part and changed? Help pls!
