Where did you get the Philips screwdriver required to take out the screws? I bought a Philips #0, still to big.

Does the white housing sold by rb-sale-s on ebay come with water stickers? Aka you don't have to pull the old ones out to stick them onto the new housing?

Thanks
Why would you want to do that? If you do damage the phone and have to warranty it they will most likely care about the housing being replaced and not the lack of a water damage indicator sticker.

You do realize that the lack of water damage indicators implies that you fiddled with your phone and, therefore, voided your warranty, right?

why would you remove the water indicator sticker from the grey shell to the white shell, when you return the phone for repair, the serial number and imei number registered will inform the service center the colour of the unit, and a switch for grey to white means waranty voided.

Really???

I'm pretty sure that the white housing is a dead giveaway...

They will know what you did and at that point the least of their concerns will be the moisture indicator.

how is everyone getting these white housing from ebay.co.uk/ebay.de?

I can't even login with my ebay.ca account or ebay.com account

Any suggestions?

The white housing would be a giveaway if i was interested in buying that from rb-sale-s.

I am interested in buying the titanium one because mine has been scratched. Seing MOST of the people here bought from this specific seller from ebay, and since in the photos it seemed like it it did have water indicators, i thought i'd ask.

I really don't understand why i have to explain myself for a simple question like that. It's a yes or no answer, if you know it, please share it with me, else don't bother.

Dude, you wrote: "Does the white housing sold by rb-sale-s on ebay come with water stickers?"

That is what prompted all of this. Don't be upset with me because you asked the wrong question.

The seller also sells titanium ones. Coming to this thread, where most people buy white housings from this specific seller i was interested in buying from, what was i supposed to ask?

"Does the titanium housing come with water damage stickers?"

I'd have gotten an even larger list of complaints for my question then.

IF the white housing comes with water damage stickers, chances are the titanium one I'm interested in also comes with water damage stickers. I sent a question to the seller on ebay but he probably doesn't speak English so I have gotten no reply. So I thought i'd ask here. Simple as. Anyway, let's put an end to this.

If someone could verify if the white housings come with water damage shields, I'd appreciate the confirmation.
