ZIP!

Soak the iPod in 90% Isopropyl alcohol BEFORE putting it in the bag of rice. The alcohol will displace any leftover water and also clean it out a bit. Most water has minerals and other such shit that is what makes it so damaging to electronics, they are the culprits that make the water conductive across the circuit boards and in essence shorting them out. If you dropped it in pure distilled water it would have no real problems. Problem is distilled water usually isn't what you're dropping electronics in.

And if you don't believe me, do it anyways. Since it won't turn on its not as if you have anything to lose by trying. But I've done this with every phone/iPod/even a digital camera that got wet and it always has worked like a charm.

I would try anything 90%+, I think we have some 95% stuff at work that is GREAT for stuff like this and it WILL displace and help remove water.

As for the rice, my wife dropped her iphone in the toilet. Left it in rice for a day or two and it worked fine afterwards. The only thing that it effected was the battery life, which blew ass afterwards. She ended up getting a new phone anyway.

If you have to tell them anything tell them you were working out and sweat must have got in it and that its not really fair to you to buy something so expensive for portable music then when you actually use it its gets ruined.

Of coarse this is if they say it has water damage.

Think it's worth trying 14 hours later?

Thanks NT. If this rice deal doesn't work, I'm going to look into the extended warranty we bought. If that doesn't work, I'll drop you a pm and see if anything can be done.

lol I hear ya... unfortunately they have a way of telling if it got wet.

And tbh, I'm not big on ripping companies off, even big huge ones... I'm just an honest guy. Now, when I've paid (or in this case my daughter has paid) good money for that extra fantabulous splendiferous super extra warranty that covers everything short of hitting it with a sledgehammer, I don't mind stretching the truth a bit. Should I be dropping my iPod in water? Fuck no, that's all me. Should I be spraying it with a garden hose? Of course, still no. But it was hardly what I'd consider soaked when I picked it up, and I'd like to think that a device they know people are going to use 24/7, in all kinds of environments, would be a little more... resistant?

Gray area for me, in this specific case. If I'd flat out washed it, or dropped it in the shitter, different story. But trashed from overspray? Damn. I've gotten pos cheap cell phones soaking wet that kept working.

i believe in karma myself, but if a company is screwing you its only fair to return the favor. iv had apple be very understanding in the past. i typically throw a small fit and explain that my last 3 iphones, 2 itouches and my ipad purchases should warrent a lil special treatment, as none of them were cheap. i hope it works out for the better.
