    I wish i woulda known the rice trick... It took my iPod a few weeks until it finally dried out, and a few months until I realized that it worked. .__.

    ), but never an iPod. I don't see why you need to remove all the air though.

    I already knew that. Too bad you can't take out the battery easily like other phones because you are supposed to take out the battery first.

    Hmmm...

    I am one of the people that never has my phone on me if I'm near water...

    I have yet to ever damage a device with water.
