    I'm thinking about jailbreaking my iPhone 4 (full up-to-date software)
    What are the consequences with my AppleCare (yes, I bought the 2-year extension)

    Also, should I even worry about my AppleCare since one of my water sensors is tripped? Thanks.

    When you jailbreak, you'll void your warranty. However, if you restore the device before coming into the Apple Store to have it checked, you'll be fine.

    AppleCare doesn't cover water damage, and since the water sensor is tripped, they probably won't cover anything.

    I hear they only serve cold soup in apple prison. That's at least one consequence. :D

    Apparently both sensors have to be tripped to void warranty

    It depends. If they're nice enough and tell them the outer sensor was tripped because of humidity or something, they MIGHT not void the warranty(like some people at MacRumors said)

    Apple changed their policy earlier this year, right around the iPhone 4 release. ( http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-19512_7-20016613-233.html?part=rss&tag=feed&subj=MacFixIt ). Several other users have reported the Genius bar employees taking their moisture sensor activated iPhones in the back to open them up and checks for actual moisture damage. Several have reported their iPhones being repaired or replaced even with one, or both sensors tripped.
