    Has anybody tried waterproofing the sensors with hot wax? Is this even possible?

    Anybody want to try? :D

    It would void the warranty and probably destroy some internal stuff. It's cheating too.

    people have gotten away with applying a drop of white nail polish on the tripped sensors before they went in before

    if you really want to try thats most likely more safe, plus you only have to attempt it if you actually get your phone wet

    Since this was your idea, I only see fit that you be the first to try it and let us know the outcome...

    I'll wait for your reply.

    I've thought about a plug that would go into the headphone jack and iPod connector. What do you guys think of that? I mean, they are two pretty big gaping holes in the device that could collect water and who knows what else. Does anyone make anything like that?

    Are you referring to plugs that cover up these ports? Because, I haven't seen any on eBay.
