    apple products and cheap to fix do not belong in the same paragraph

    Hi, not sure how much to repair, but have you tried to let it dry? My niece left phone in a pair of trousers that went for a full wash in washing machine and wasn't working. They were letting it dry by letting in the sun....Mind you they are in Italy and it was summer.....Maybe worth a try if we get any sunny days.

    you need dry heat, airing cupboard for example for a few nights to a week. in a bag of rice (uncooked of course) lol, then in the airing cupboard. unfortunately, if you tried to turn it on when it was wet it will have shorted out. Ive brought back to life a few things that way.

    i was wearing a gap hoodie with big loose pockets on front which is where the ipod was
    as i was unzipping myself it slipped out
    was only in the "clean" water for a couple of secs
