    So I got rain water into my ear piece and it turns on when I have it hooked up to the charger, computer, or any source of power. Yet once I leave it go into sleep mode it starts restarted itself constantly. I don't know what will help it exactly. It does still work apparently. Right now I have it in a ziplock container full with rice under a lamp. If this doesn't work what else could I try?

    Since it's in the ear piece, they will see the water damage sticker has gotten wet. Voiding his warranty.

    Iam paranoid about this. I keep it on my belt and if it is raining I always cover it with my hand when I run to the car. Does anyone make plugs that can cover the hole?

    Just get some old headphones cut the wires and plug it in. My advice..have a zip lock bag handy....when it starts to rain hang up all calls.

    Look down the headphone jack with a light -- is it pink/red down there?

    Well except for the new note on that product "This eject tool cannot put into your earphone slot."
