    hey guys. So the other day i had some easter chocolate in my pocket and it melted and got on my iphone mic. it wasn't too bad, not much was on there, so i used a damp paper towel and q-tip to clean it up. however, now the mic doesn't work. What should I do? I'd take it to the apple store by my school is pretty remote and there isn't one less than 4.5 hrs away.

    PLEASE HELP!!!!!! I'M DESPERATE!

    thanks guys

    Check if any water sensors are tripped. Look in the headphone jack and the dock connector and make sure there is no red or pink. Hold it under light to get a better view. If it is, even if it isn't from the chocolate, Apple will refuse to repair it. Many people on MR have had it triggered by condensation and Apple won't fix some other completely unrelated issue. If they aren't tripped, take it in. Good luck! :)
