    It shorted out because there was still water in it-- you should have left it alone for a longer period of time to dry out. You can try applecare, but I'm sure if you tell them that you dropped it into a sink full of water they won't cover it. I'm sure the "immersion in water" isn't considered normal usage.

    Your call, you can call them and just say it quit working, but they might find evidence of water in it and want to charge you for repair.

    I dropped my cell phone in the toilet last year (don't ask) and took it in to Verizon to be looked at. The phone (Motorola v710) has a little chip inside of it that changes from white to red when it gets wet; that way they can tell right off the bat if it has incurred water damage. Luckily my wife had convinced me to buy the $6/mo insurance for it and they covered any water damage
