Top microphone waterproofing - can a sim tray pin break it?

Hi. I accidentally poked the top mic hole instead of the sim tray with the pin. What an idiot! Mic still works fine, but does anyone have any information on the waterproof setup of the mic. Might I have compromised it? Is the waterproof device directly in the hole? Thanks

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

[image|1016539] hi thanks again. I tried what you said but I can't see anything that says 'pressure' to test. Am I in the right place?

Hi thanks for your help. From the outside of the phone there is no noticeable damage at all. So sorry I can't help with that. Would you expect to see that broken if it has compromised the waterproof?

It it looks fine, then I wouldn't worry about it, test it by going into phone, type *#0*# and then click sensor. Find pressure and then press on the screen. If it goes up, it is waterproof. If not, then it probibly isn't waterproof anymore. If your confident, put it in some shallow water and see what happens.

Yes, it is the barometer. It says altitude and barometer, it is mainly used for weather but it should work for this too.

I think the only real way to test it is to put it in water, but it should be fine if it looks fine.
