    Possibly. I wouldn't risk it. I think those water damage sensors turn very easily.

    If you have a fan/vent you should be fine. I listen to music from my droid all the time when I hop in the shower.

    I also sing, but that's a totally different story :p

    I think it will be fine depending on where you place it at. The further from the shower the better, and as said above, make sure the fan is on.

    I can see using an iPod, but would you bring your laptop into the bathroom while in the shower?
    I wouldn't.

    My first phones water indicators turned eventually just from sweat steam from being in my pocket.

    I think that if u keep it away from the shower and maybe have a vent to put it under or something u should be fine. so I would just be careful where I put it.

    I have put a shirt or towel over the phone while showering and it seems to be OK. Just turn the volume up a little louder!

    to flat out answer the question YES steam can damage it and set the sensors off not likely tho... ive set the sensors off just by taking my phone on a run with me tho

    Lots of T.M.I. in this thread - but yes steam can cause your water indicators to smear, therefore voiding the warranty. As has been pointed out, sweat from being in your pocket can cause moisture to get in the phone too.

    I'd be very cautious about not having a fan running or window open. Or, take a cold shower, or keep the phone out of the bathroom and sing like I do...oh wait, TMI.
