    There are automatic sinks at school and my ipod touch fell in one, the sink turned on and it took me a second to realize what happened, I dried it and it turns on and looks normal, but it just doesn't detect my touch anymore
    :( What do I do? I'm wondering if I can get it fixed and how much it's gooing to cost...

    Put it in a resealable bag with uncooked rice, and leave it for a few days. The rice should absorb the moisture.

    If that doesn't work then there's probably no hope for it. Apple might be able to fix it for a cost.

    Like others said, try to put it in a bowl of rice.

    Apple will replace it for $129.

    Don't forget to turn it off completely before doing this.

    I dropped mine in the toilet as it was refilling after flushing the day I was moving out of my house. Literally it was the last thing before walking out. Everything was packed, including rice.

    I knew enough not to try and turn it back on. I wedged it bottom first in to the airconditioner vent in my car and blasted it for a 3 hour ride. I let it sit for 2 days before I could move in to my new place.

    I finally tried to start it and it wouldn't turn on. As a last resort, I plugged it in to my computer and it fired up with the Apple logo and started charging. The weird thing was that it was about 75% when I dropped it.

    A couple of days later, the screen would get dim right in the middle of using it. See here. A few more days passed and I was about to give up, it started working.

    Good luck to you.

    I thought your username sounded familiar.
