    The white bit on the back of a cell phone is the water damage indicator correct? If it has seen moisture it gets red X's?

    My droid is a bit over a week old and has never even been close to water, and its got red X on the little white thing under the battery cover. Whats up with that?

    And you've got red X too? Is the humidity from a hot shower enough to do that?

    That is a tricky question. I would think not but if it can fog up your mirror...

    That would make sense because thinking on it, I don't think I've ever had a phone that didn't have the red x. Maybe I should go throw my old BB in the sink and find out! lol

    Yes if it is bright red then threw is water if there are Red x's on a white background then you're OK. Mine has the red x's and been no where near water.

    I too have red x's, but mine has been in the bathroom during a hot shower.
    Maybe someone whose gotten there's wet will respond.

    I think the red X's are supposed to bleed into the white background making the entire indicator pink, at least that's how it used to work.
