    personally i would leave it out to dry on its own for a day or two then turn it on
    Trying is the first step to failure

    if you have an airing cupboard or something thats constantly warm and dry, leave it in there for a day or so.

    If you are going to get it repaired to Apple, it will cost you some big money, $150 to be exact. Look down your headphone jack, if it is red down there, then you have some big a-- water damage. Good luck.

    However, I am telling him ahead of time about the consequences of getting the iPod wet.

    Just give it time to dry. If it doesn't turn on the battery might be dead now. Wouldn't warranty protect against something like that? It's protected by accidental damage right? And it getting wet while a fire is being put out isn't really doing it on purpose I guess. I figure they would at least repair it as a courtesy or something because of all the other damage to the building and stuff.

    If it gets wet, no. I went to the Apple Store and I had to pay to get my iPod replaced. $150 man...
