    Hi all,

    Last weekend I was involved in a collision that sent some iced tea from an open can in the cup holder of my car onto my iPhone 4. Due to the way I place my phone in my car, only the side with the volume buttons and silent switch got any liquid on it.

    I was able to clean it off and haven't noticed any damage to the software operation of the phone, but I have noticed a rather annoying physical problem. It seems some of the iced tea got into the switch and it's now extremely difficult to switch the phone from silent to ring and back.

    I've done everything I could think of short of taking the phone apart to clean it; damp cloth, toothpick, etc. The switch appears clean but it's still sticking. Is there anything I can do to fix this?

    Thanks in advance.
