I have tried drying it by Hair Dryer and on reading some forum , i kept it in the Fridge to clear the condensation. Nothing helps till now.
But it clears itself day by day automatically.
The iPhone 4 is out of warranty and I have been using it since last 2 years.
I am unable to get some solution for this on googling. if anyone has had any idea to clear the Grey Smudges, Please let me know.
Put it in uncooked rice for a couple of hours. Should get rid of any moisture.

I tried that too. Missed this detail in my last post.
Here the fluid is not water and it's Nail Enamel Remover.

I must say that it was a bit foolish to use Nail polish remover on the phone. Afraid that the coloration could be due to the chemical. Why don’t you call up Apple support and ask for any possible options? Don’t mention that you used the remover to clean the phone (maybe mention as an accidental spill).

hmmm. I know it
But on using a small amount can clear the debris around the home button for sure and done it multiple times in 2 years.
But this time, i have used some more amount which turned to awkward situation.
A lot of same issue can be identified on googling, But no proper solution.

Came across this new ecommerce site: Kaunsa.com selling 32gb white iphone 5 for 37999. Could this be true? Any feedback on this website?

Hello Sudhir,

Really cheap to be believed!! Have shaved off almost 10k from what other shops/ sites are quoting (45.5k for 16GB)

They have mentioned their help line number as well? Did your try calling up on the same?

UPDATE - a quick Google search only threw back -ve feedbacks. :(

Unless someone here has had an actual experience is when we should proceed with running a risk ourselves

End note - The price is really too tempting to resist..

Could be an import, so might not get warranty and stuff.
iPhone 5 32 gb @ 38K is definitely worth a shot.

I think its a import from europe that's the reason this price. 32gb 4s import from Europe is selling @ around 33k in eBay

And the 4s listed in the site could be a India product with warranty and stuff.

Just downloaded the app. It's iPhone sized only, so iPad usage will be limited. Seems to have turn by turn navigation also. Such a relief to get the 'proper' maps back!
