    Based on these articles, it does not look like sweat and excercise are compatible with the iphone and its water sensors. Living in the south where it's 100% humidity all the time, this seems to trigger the sensor of some iphones also. That is not fair for iphone users who truly never had their phone touch water. The last link is a video.

    If this has been posted already, I did a search and did not find it.

    I agree that this isn't fair. Hopefully the sensors in the next gen iPhone will be more "hardy."

    Then what happened? Did the sensors trip or not? How much was it exposed to the water?

    I wonder if Apple 'geniuses' are more lenient in states/regions that have high humidity levels. Seeing as some of them have iPhones I'd think they would be more understanding if a replacement situation came up.
