For as awesome and technologically advanced as the iPhone is, it seems funny that water is its Cryptonite. Inside every iPhone is a water-sensing tab that lets Apple's employees know if a customer's claim that his phone "just stopped working" is code for "got wet." If the phone has been damaged by water, Apple will offer a replacement for $199. While this sounds pretty (really) steep, it is a welcome change from their previous policy: "Too bad your phone got wet, I hope you have enough money to buy a brand new one."
So, iPhone users, let us all be mindful of where we put our phones when we go to the restroom. And word to the wise: my friend Eric found out that sweat is equally as detrimental to the iPhone, so to all those who suffer from Hyperhidrosis, put a water proof case on your phone when you go to the gym.
