    water damage sticker question - would like to see pics

    I was going to add this to my earlier post about the power button, but it's really a separate issue - hence it's own post.

    I'm in a bit of an argument with Asurion about whether they will warrantee my 6 month old Gnex - their phone menu system asked me if my sticker was 'red' and I answered 'yes', since it has red x's on it...

    then the customer service rep told me that 'red indicated water damage' and so they wouldn't cover the warrantee (see my 'power button' post). this phone has NEVER been in water or even in contact with water (besides being in my pocket on rainy day).

    but after googling it a bit it seems that red x's might be NORMAL and that water damage is indicated by purple or smeared x's or some other indication that no one can seem to agree on...

    I have tried googling for an image of 'galaxy nexus water damage sticker' and all variants but can't get an image that shows 'before and after' - so I have no idea whether mine shows water damage or not.

    I would include a pic of my sticker here but due to my power button problem I'm not willing to shut my phone down right now - could someone please post a pic of what a healthy sticker looks like?

    and if possible an unhealthy one would be great too.

    it'd make a big difference to me!

    thanks.

    Here are pics of the water indicator on the battery from my Fascinate (with & without flash). There is no water damage and the color is more like a magenta.

    Thanks everyone, from the pictures you guys posted it definitely looks like my phone has NOT been water damaged... So maybe I can get it warranted after all.
