    Im truly devastated!
    Im sure you would all be if you sat on your toilet and heard a noise and instantly got up to see your ipod in the toilet, no i do not use it in the washroom i just had it in my pocket and soon as i heard it fall i grabbed it and yes the water was fine. I've had my ipod (2G) for about 2-3 years now greatest device ive ever owned, im going to place it in a bag of rice to make sure its not totally dead.
    im positive its not function able any more, but when i hold power the screens white?
    so anyways if i was to sell it on kijiji, or craigslist maybe ebay if i really have to how much would it be worth? 50$?
    Thanks for reading .. . : (

    This is a 1G iPod Touch that you just dropped in toilet?

    First off yo should not have turn on your ipod once it hits the water. Second of all turn off the iDevice and leave it in a bag of rice for a week or two in a dry environment. Third of all I am not even sure how much they are gonna buy it. Water damage IS damaged.

    But yes 50 would do.

    Was this a 1g? If it was, you might actually get more then 50$ since 1gs can be worth quite a bit, I'm not sure of this, but it might be since 1g ipod touches can use iAndriod

    That's right. Turning on iPod after water contact will cause short circuit.

    50$ should do, but make sure not to write that it drowned in your toilette. Just write "water damage"

    I would just sell it and say Water damage.$50 may be enough.Though you could use it and get a 10% discount on a new iPod Touch at the apple store by trading it in.

    I had the same problem. BUT DO NOT SELL IT! THERE IS STILL HOPE!
    I put mine in a bag of rice for 2 WEEKS! BE PATIENT!
    Well (DId u turn it off) turn it off immediately. if u didnt already, ur screwed.
    Alright so after 2 weeks, try turning it on, if nothing happens, leave it in the rice for another 3 days or so. then try turning it on.
    Mine started working after 2 and a half weeks. Good Luck!
    (I sold it off ebay for 120 $ after it started working. got the 4th one

    After nothing works, then u either sell it or trade it in.
