    Default [Unexpected Event] Water Stain under the screen.

    Please take a look at this pic and give you opinion if the circle on the bottom right of the screen is from "water" damage or something else.

    An explanation of what happened can be found here:

    The spot has been there since yesterday morning and has yet to diminish.

    Many thanks in advance!

    moisture under the screen cover would not look like that, thats probably screen damage

    your other post says that the water damage sticker is pink, so replacement is not an option

    my recommendation: dont bother trying to fix it using replacement parts as there is a good chance that more than just the screen needs replacing. wait for the 3g iphone then either upgrade or get a great deal on an edge phone.

    damn, are acid burns covered under warranty?!?! jk i could be dishonest can cover the water mark under the jack and on the inside w/ blotting paper ...but thats a lil too dishonest!

    worse case, doesnt apple give you an option to replace w/ a refurb for $250 when your phone isnt covered under warranty? or do they make you buy a new phone?

    i could wait til 3g, but i would wait to see if they can unlock it as well since i'm w/ tmobile and not willing to switch have been since 98 or 99.

    the 3G iphone isnt going to work with tmobiles 3g anyway, so i guess there's no point in waiting for you

    yeah, i was actually thinking about the compatiability just yesterday. then i read the article somewhere on this forum just a bit ago about the different bands.

    so now i guess the question is ...make the switch after almost a decade, buy a new one or try for a refurb.

    does anyone know the the validity of being able to buy a refurb for $250 if your's is out of warranty ...and if you still have to turn in your f'ed up one to get it? just wondering cuz i guess i would sell whatever is left for parts and let someone else deal w/ it.
