I was working out with my iPhone when the headphones cut out. I noticed that there was a slight amount of sweat on the end of the jack I blew into the headphone jack on the phone and the button on the top stopped working. I took the iPhone to the local Apple store and they looked into the jack and said I submerged the phone into water, there for the warranty was now void. I assured the so called geniuses that I did not submerge the phone and a slight amount of sweat got into the jack. They insisted that one or two drops of water will not set the sensor off per the Apple engineered. At this point I felt as if they were calling me a lier. I called Apples customer relations and they told me a different story. they said if any amount of moisture gets into the headphone jack it can trigger the sensor, there for my warranty was now Void! I pleaded my case to the manager of the Apple store and customer relations. to no avail. I had to pay $250 for a new phone. It is my mission to tell as many people about this experience as possibly. If I find enough people that this has happened to I want to start a class action lawsuit against Apple. Every iPhone owner should beware, Apple will void your warranty if the sensor is triggered. It is the stupidest engineering ever to put that sensor exposed to the outside environment. Or maybe not! This way Apple can get out of warrantying your phone if the sensor is ever trigged. You be the judge.
