Hi, i have a otterbox defender (http://www.otterbox.com/iPhone-4-Defender-Series-Case/APL2-I4XXX,default,pd.html?dwvar_APL2-I4XXX_color=20&start=1&cgid=apple-iphone-4-cases) for a case for my iphone 4s. it covers the headphone jack and the connector. I recently took out the screen protector that came glued onto the otterbox case and put a ishieldz screen protector and im wondering if snow could damage my iphone even though the headphone jack, connector is covered. The sensors are still white so i know it's not water damaged but i turned it off when i found my phone in not even an inch of snow with the screen down and little snowflakes on the speaker. Once i cleaned it off i put it in a bag of rice and im wondering if the snow could damage the screen and the internals through the screen and speakers, it was only in the snow for max of 5 minutes.

I would say, from what you've wrote, that your phone is fine.

Thank you for your input :)
i would still like to know what other people think of my situation
I've left my past iphones face up in the rain and they worked fine afterwards. I would think a little time in the snow is much less likely to damage the phone than rain.

Get a waterproof case such as Lifeproof and stop worrying. :) I love mine. Wet is no longer a problem.
