    Where I live we get a lot of mist and fog. My case didn't include anything to cover the ear bud jack and I'm concerned the mist might activate the moisture indicator. What are you using (if anything) to plug the jack to keep light moisture out? Since it's in a case I'm thinking a low tech piece of tape...

    switcheasy colors come with head phone jack plug. I don't use it since I'm always plugging in and out my headphone but i am quite scared of water getting down there.

    iSkin Revo 2 (they make one for the first gen phone 2) is a really good option

    I also found some make shift stuff but i want the plug to look as flush with the phone as possible. Post if you find anything better.

    If you're that worried, Otterbox makes great cases that will probably protect your iphone and the moisture indicator. They're not cheap but they are worth it!

    Try the iZipLock bag, available at the Apple Store for $39.99. It works great and the package comes with three zip lock bags. The Apple employees at the Genius Bar will even help you install them. :)

    The OP should just put his entire body in the bag. Don't bother with the air holes. It may let moisture in.


    Oh my, that put you in the FAIL hall of fame! :eek:

    The Apple ones (ZipLock) are better then the one at the super market as those are specially designed for iPhones.
