    Ok well i just wanted to share my story with someone. So a few weeks ago i was jogging with my ipod touch in my pocket, about halfway through my jog it started pooring down rain and i was like OMFG. I thought for sure my ipod was broken. I sprinted home and tryed to turn it on, it turned on fine but i was still panicking, i didnt do the rice trick and just let it dry out normally. So about a day later i looked at it and it was fine. I plugged it in and it heated up really fast, hotter then normal, Also i had realized the wifi was not working it said "no wifi" under the settings. I knew for a fact that water damage was not covered under my basic warranty. But i took it in anyways today into my local apple store. The man looked at it and turned it on and fooled around with it for a minute. After that he said "hmm yeah we have had a few of these". At this time he still hadnt checked the water strip in the headphone jack. So then he says "let me run back and get a new one out for you, well just replace it." So yup they replaced it for free, Didnt even look to see if it had water damage. I lucked out.

    Thanks for reading if you did
