    Usually the watermark is inside of a hole or not exposed so fully. However the watermark on the s4 is right behind the battery

    So couldn't someone just put a piece of tape on the watermark and protect it from getting wet. Then when it gets wet, remove the tape, the watermark should be good, and take it to verizon/att and cry broken phone???

    EDIT: alright so i tried this, i took off the tape, and part of the watermark came off. what i should have done was put paper in between the watermark and the tape, so the tape so does not directly contact the watermark. That way, everything would have been fine. lol

    Not to mention that there are other water marks in the phone itself. They will know if the device got damaged by water

    You didnt purchase insurance? That would protect you from water damage.

    To me it's an issue of honesty. One thing my dad taught me was do what's right, even if it costs you something.
