Perhaps. The rapid temperature change from the hot bathroom to let's say out side in the winter or a cold air conditioned room would concern me more. The potential for condensstion inside the phone would be present. So is he right, probably.

- Stock for now
Now I don't think it is a very coming thing as I have never kept up to date with the issue but I can see it happening.

ok.. yes.. it is possible.. true. moisture in air ..
can get in the phone.. and condense back to water...
and fry the phone. or the least, it can damage the water mark stickers!
but this is highly ... hard to do.
because of normal use in all weathers around the globe.
from cold rooms to hot areas
from humid hot to cold areas
from rainy days to warm fires
from rainy days to cold areas
these phones and all phones... have to be designed to work in all major cities.
and a lot of them are way more moisture hostile to your phone than being in a bathroom!
if you love to take long showers with extremely hot water in the middle of winter... then you might not want to take the phone in there with you.

Hook up your phone via 3.5mm jacks to some speakers in there and set your evo close to the cool, dry floor as the steam/heat will stay at the top.
Just a thought if your worried about it, yet want some shock jock at the same timeSome say the glass is half empty. Some say its half full. I say, "Are you going to drink that?"

I think what is more likely to happen (not saying actual water damage is not going to occur, depending on your ventilation and humidity in the air) is that the water damage sticker inside the phone will display water damage from the humidity condensing on the device, thus your warranty is void for future claims.NS4G

I actually finally convinced my roommate to stop doing that because of the water damage markers. I just hate seeing any of our little guys being put into a potentially harmful situation. :-)

Just like going to the beach.
This is when a zip-lock bag will save you. I have iHome mini rechargeable speakers that work great and the phone stays in the bag, safe and sound. One little wire comes out at the top of the bag and the rest is zipped tight.

Here is something to think about when in a humid to wet environments. Unless your phone is qualified to at least Mil Standard C, like some Nextels especially the i355, you can throw that phone at a wall and it will be fine, but the wall if sheet rock might have a impression on it. Should not be introduced in that environment meaning, keep it away from moisture.

My bathroom is ventilated, so I bring phone in sometimes....never had an issue. Door open is a great idea.
