    DON'T TURN IT ON!!! Pack it in a bowl of dry rice so it is fully covered and wait 3 days. Then try.

    Actually when you drop it in water your not supposed to turn it on as it could short the circuits. Putting in a bowl or bag of rice for a week works. It happened to an old iPod and it's still works.

    They wouldn't replace it due to water damage and especially if its jailbroken. Both void the warranty instantly.

    Are you serious? Why would you turn it on if you dropped it in water?
