    is there a water damage marker on the 3g?

    I know there is one on the first gen in the headphone jack, but i don't see it on the 3g. Just curious...

    c'mon man/woman. Do you really think you are the first person to ask this question? Hit the search button.

    And yes, there's two. Headphone and dock connector.

    The location for the bottom marker is slightly different from the 1st Gen. It's located under the dock connector pins and you need a little flashlight to be able to see it. If you have a hard time finding it, thats good cos its white and that means it aint damaged yet.

    As stated, much info available in earlier threads. Go look around.

    I love how your complaint about her not searching is actually longer than the answer to her very simple question. Why bother even taking the time to complain about something so pointless?

    A droplet of bleach should turn it white again :)

    I'd avoid engaging in warranty fraud. Especially after questions asked how to do it were asked on a public forum.

    I own an iPod shuffle (3rd generation) and the sensor in the headphone jack turned pink/red without ever being in contact with water, so it was a false positive, anyways, several weeks back I tried this method that I found on Google and in less than a minute it turned white again.

    Its been 4 weeks and it has not turned red again.

    Yup, almost as pointless as chastising someone in an 18 month old thread. You're both winners.
