    Unhappy water damaged 3G--Help Please--
    I really need some help here, please. I fell into the pool today with my beloved 3G and I am trying to decide if I should wait and see what happens (if it'll work again), ship to a 3rd party repair shop (any suggestions would be much appreciated), or take it to Apple ( what do I tell them?)... I have looked into the headphone jack and it appears to be about 1/3 to 1/2 reddish color. I am heartbroken and sick about this. I really need your help. Thanks in advance.

    Keep it OFF and put it in a bag of rice for a week or so.

    You MIGHT get really lucky and it will work again.

    But there is no repair shop that would be able to fix it....and Apple wont touch it.

    And it would have to be opened, probed and checked to see what all is shorted and what has to be replaced, and may be totally fried and useless.

    Paint the sticker that turned red in the headphone jack with liquid paper and take it to the apple store. Worked for a friend of mine.
