    We don't have a cat but our 6 year old son did the same thing to my wife's phone. It continues to work as if nothing ever happended. I'm very impressed. If it were my BB Storm - it would be out for the count.

    Anyway, she continues to use it without sending it in.

    Okay - I'm only seeing one "red" thingamjig". It appears to have a sort of white cross emblem in it, with a red background. Under the battery cover, but not under the battery. It's in the corner closest to the camera eye. Is this what we are speaking of? And you mention it in the plural sense. Where are the others? I see only this one on my Motorola Droid.

    Lost my other Reds in Jersey - Cuskit

    If it still works hang onto it until something that causes to not work happens (hopefully it wont). The one you have now is probably better than a refurb.

    If it still works keep the money until you need to spend it. LOL and don't kill the cat everyone makes mistakes.

    Throw the cat out the window first, then figure out what to do with the droid.

    Beat cat with Droid, takes care of cat, and provides damage for a turn in. At least, unless asurion sprays said Droid with luminol... ;)

    Take the battery door off your droid, on the top left next to the little recycle bin logo, theres a circle with a WHITE piece of paper with little red x's. When water touches that it becomes a solid bright RED indicating it got wet. If you also look on your battery theres another indicator.

    I like all the posts on what to do with my stupid cat lol. For now i think im going to keep my droid as it is as of it works like nothing ever happened to it. What i did was i took it apart instantly, dried what i could with tissues and used a mini shop vac to suck out water and believe it or not it worked really well. After that i set it infront of the woodstove for 3 hours and worked like a charm. My droid was about 4 feet from the fire so it didnt get hot but my woodstove room is dry like a desert so worked great :)

    Cats are evil...well some are anyways...glad to here it still works and if it does it should continue to for a long time. Oh BTW did your cat become an "outdoor cat"?

    Urban legend. Rice is dry, so it will absorb water it comes in contact with. But it doesn't have magic in it that will cause water to seem out of nooks and crannies inside the phone. You'd be better off leaving the phone open and out of rice for better airflow. Dry air will remove moisture better than rice will.
