    I recently had my ipod touch get soaked by a water balloon and it wasn't responding for the whole day. However, i used the rice trick and regained its functionality and seemed like it was working fine. The only concern I have is that it is always shows a full charge and occasionally cuts out to the battery screen showing it needs to be plugged in to charge. And now like i tried to use the most out of it, such as turning up the back light and use apps to try to kill the battery but it's still at 100%. It's very odd but i'm afraid there is still something wrong with it.

    Try doing a full charge/discharge cycle to re-calibrate the battery.

    Alright that sounds good, i'll give that a try

    Sorry for the double post, but I was just wondering if for some reason my ipod doesn't work anymore and has the water damage indicator tripped, can i get a discount or a replacement instead of paying full retail price for a new one?

    Hmmm, i guess that is possible but to be safe, you had better contact the Apple Service Provider for clarification... There won't be any one-to-one exchange though, as the damage was due to water...

    It may not be completly dry, so turn it off and leave it in that bag of rice for another night. When you wake up the next morning, run the most battery intensive app you have until the battery dies. Recharge afterwards.

    Yeah, they check for water damage, but they're area few ways to cheat the system. *ehem*
