Okay so my brother got a brand new iPod Touch 4th gen a couple months ago. This morning we took the clothes out of the washer and sitting at the bottom was his iPod. It is not physicaly damaged or dented (it actually looks like some of the scratches are gone) but its soaked. You can see the water behind the front camera (and soap bubbles). Since last year he dropped his old one in the toilet (we should really stop buying him nice things) I knew what to do. I put it in a bag of rice and no one has tried to power it up. So I have a couple questions: 1. How long should I leave it in the rice? 2. What are the chances it will work again? 3. It had a screen protector on it at the time should I remove it? 4. If it is dead is there any way that apple may replace it or something (I haven't checked the liquid sensors yet but i'm sure they have been set)? 5. If it's completely dead or non-operable will I be able to recover the photos and data like notes etc. (The last backup was about 2 weeks ago and he takes alot of pics) All of your help is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance! Update: I just checked the water sensor in the earphone jack and it is still white! Couldn't find the one in the dock though. If it dies does this mean I can get it replaced for free since there is no indication of damage?
