Water dropped phone with non water problems?
Hey guys I'm wondering, if a phone is dropped in water but the sensors don't go off, is the warranty still void for all problems? Or does a water drop void all warranty, whether its related or not?

It actually depends. If you dropped the phone in non-saltwater, there will be little to no residue left inside of the phone. However, if it took in salt water, there may be white residue on the inside that would indicate the phone was exposed to water. If there is residue, a quick cover up is to use some 99.9% isopropyl alcohol, and clean the visible parts of the phone's internals with a cotton swab.
Even if the phone is water damaged, you can easily find replacement stickers that you can put in, and no one would be able to tell the difference.

And although I do recommend being honest about an iPhone being water damaged, your statement that the Apple tech could still find out is wrong.
The reason they have the water damage indicators inside of the phone is so they can see if the indicators have been exposed to liquid (thereby changing color.) If the stickers do not change color, or are replaced with new water damage stickers, there is no indication of water damage.
