I encountered the same problem.
My 4s never touched water but somehow both of my sensor are pink... And I know I have to pay a great deal of money to get a new one cuz they wont fix this one or replace it.

I had the same thing happen today - woke up and the 4S wouldn't charge / turn on / etc. walked into verizon and was told "you dropped it in water, not our problem." Now waiting until next week w/o a phone until a new one arrives by mail.
haven't dropped the phone in water. At least I had the insurance on the phone so the total cost will be half that of a new 4S...
not impressed with Verizon. Definitely checking the moisture indicators when the new phone arrives

After spending $850 today I hadn't planned on...
What did you spend $850 on? An out of warranty replacement for an iPhone 5 is $229 from Apple. $199 for a 4S, and $149 for a 4, 3Gs, or earlier...
You didn't actually buy a brand new phone for full price, did you?
If you still have the old phone, take it to the Apple Store nearest you (make an appointment at the genius bar) and get a replacement for it. Then take the new phone back to Verizon and return it for a refund. You got ripped off by someone who is either ignorant, or more concerned with their commission than they are with customer service.

The water damage indicators are very sensitive, if you have the phone in the bathroom with a hot steamy shower running it'll trip the indicator. Good way to tell is it'll usually turn a light pink rather than a dark red.
