I think football coaches should be exempt from Gatorade damage or the alumni association should replace their lost electronic articles just for the win.

Corey, here is my answer to a similar question "as with any iPhone, I strongly recommend that you clean it. Disassemble it by using these guides. Clean it properly using this guide. It was written for a 3G but all the points still apply to your phone as well. Once it is properly cleaned '''replace the battery" reassemble and re-evaluate. With a new battery and properly cleaned, you will have a good starting point should any further trouble shooting be necessary." It does not matter what fluid the phone got exposed to, it will have to be cleaned properly. Hope this helps, good luck.
