Your phone IMEI is in their database, so answer is no, you can't fool them on that way. Once the indicator become red it can't change back. Second, they will see oxidation inside your phone (corrosion). And this kind of questions are not welcome on xda because this is fraud.

We at XDA do not condone "Fraud" when it concerns manufacturers and other areas.

It's disheartening when you receive water damage to a device, whether by accident or otherwise.

However, we don't discuss these dealings, as it would concern legal issues with manufacturers, which of course XDA will avoid.

It's possible you can get some replacement parts on E-Bay, as I would advise that. Breakdown and repair instructions are posted everywhere.
