    I bought the iPhone 4 about a year ago and recently I purchased apple care. Yesterday my phone's Sleep/Wake Button got stuck and won't work. I requested a replacement that is coming to me on Monday. Now after cleaning it and checking it out I find that the liquid contact indicator in the headphone jack is pink/red. I have not dropped it in any water or liquid and I know that the stuck wake button is not related to water damage. Wondering if my applecare will be voided and I will be charged $200 for the out of warranty repair? Any suggestions on what I should do?:confused: Thanks..I would greatly appreciate any response. :apple:

    A quick google search shows Apple is relaxing their policy. YMMV

    No problem, I usually don't use too many acronyms. I usually am the one using Google to find the translation :D

    Was not charged!!

    I checked my mail a while ago and got a letter from apple with the invoice for the apple care replacement. iPhone 4 was replaced at no cost!!!:D:apple:
