    My brothers RAZR fell in the lake with him Sunday night, it has been in rice since then. It will now power on. But some keys don't work, and it doesn't get service very well. I'm hopeful because it does power on, any other suggestions of what we should do?

    you have done the most you could.. i know if you dont have a factory cable for that thing . you will need to keep it charged as well. once it dies it hard to recover from that . 2 days on rice then charge and hope is about all you can do .. hope it works out for ya

    Believe it or not it actually died once and came back. I was not consulted until a day later so i wasn't able to keep it from dying.

    So as it turns out, my sisters ipood fell in the lake the same say as my brothers RAZR. I'm happy to report that the RAZR had come back to life and is being used again while the apple remains dead.

    Factory data cables.... i think we need to start recommending them lol. As part of a "recovering your razr after its been wet" kit.

    What kind of iPod?
    If it's a classic, it's dead. iPod classic has a HD inside.
