    Default how can you tell if your 3gs has water damage?
    I bought a used 3gs, and was wondering if there's any good test I can do to make there hasn't been any water damage. I took a lamp, and looked into the usb port, but I didn't see any red strip, or even a white strip inside.

    The reason I ask is because idk if its me, but the 3gs sounds distorted listening to music when you turn it to a high level on the ext. speaker. Listening through the headphone jack sounds clean as a whistle. I Dont know if this is because a soft. issue in the works, but this is one the 1st 3gs phones to come out around June.

    iPhone and iPod: Water damage is not covered by warranty

    There are also two additional water indicators on the inside on the logic board.
