While device manufacturers should not have to make good on fraudulent warranty claims, they very much should and are legally required to honor legitimate warranty claims. Yet it is Apple’s unbending position that one triggered external liquid sensor meets the criterion for “submersion.” How can Apple say this with a straight face?
There has a bit of noise in the news lately about Apple’s policy towards iPhones with moisture damage. A lot of complaints have been surfacing on twitter, forums and blogs that iPhones are so sensitive to moisture damage that a sweaty hand at the gym or a few episodes of being in the same room as a steamy shower can trigger the moisture sensor and cause a manufacturer’s warranty claim to be rejected by Apple. Not good.

It's not just apple. I have seen this on a lot of Motorola's as well.

I wonder which phones out there are moisture-resistant? I live in snow country, so dropping a cell phone into snow does not appeal to me.
