    I spilled tea into my ipod touch and mytouch cell phone and both were on at the time!! I need to know if salvage is possible--should I try anything before I try sending it in for repair?

    you could also try silica gel..like the stuff in beef jerky. if you're desperate, try a hairdryer on LOW, but only as a last resort.
