    I was in the bathroom, while babysitting my little cousin. we were listening to music while i was doing my hair, and she bumped my ipod dock and my itouch fell into the toilet. i got it out like a second later, and now, a week later, after putting it in rice, it works! woohoo!
    ---only, my problem is, it keeps losing my wifi connection no matter how many times i reset it, I'll have connection for like five minutes and then it will grey out and say "no wifi". its getting ridiculous. and sometimes my music wont play out loud, which i kind of expected. i didnt expect it to work perfectly again. and sometimes the keyboard thing doesnt work in certain areas either. what should i do? is there anything i should do to try and make it like normal again, or should i get a new one?
    they wont replace it at Apple because of the water damage.

    I would buy a new one, apple can detect these things, water damage has this sort of expectancy, faulty screen,faulty physical buttons, rattling, that kinda thing.

    Sell it "as is" for about $130-$90, depending on the generation.

    OH, and there is a stupid crack in the screen. but it doesnt mess up any of the viewing of the screen at all. you can still see everything perfectly, unless you turn it to the side, but idk who would look at the screen like a weirdo. lol.

    does anybody know how much i should sell it for? if at all.
