    Mine fell in a swimming pool. Is there any hope? There is water in the screen. I tried carefully drying it with low heat with a hair dryer but its not even turning on.

I know it sounds ridiculous, but take the battery out and leave the rest of your phone to sit in a dry place for a few days. you can blow dry it as long as you dont heat it up too much - use a cool setting or jsut be really careful. ive dropped the exact phone in water before and this tip from a friend worked. also, if this does not work, you can go to verizon and they have some tool to retrieve your contacts. i think it costs like $25 or something, but they should be able to retrieve numbers without your phone working, atleast this has been my experience. good luck!

What are some popular wine terms and what do they mean?

There are quite a few terms used in the wine world. Here are a few of the more popular ones:

Balance - used to describe the stability between the tannins, acid and alcohol

Body - a way to describe the way a wine feels inside the tasters mouth

Legs - droplets that are formed and drape the sides of a wine glass after swirling; this can help indicate the amount of alcohol in the wine - a slower drip means more alcohol

Old World - this refers to certain wine regions in Europe; more specifically, France, Italy, Spain and Germany

My SCH-a930 won't charge. I still have battery life, and the phone works fine, but the phone won't charge. I have tried multiple wall outlets. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks!

Please, try using another charger with the phone.
If the problem continues, get a screw driver, unscrew the phone and bring the charging port out. The charging port is at the tail end of the phone.
Clean the surface of the panel where the charging port contact the panel with a spirit and allow it to dry for 30 minute. Couple back the phone and i am sure the charging phone will work fine.

It would be better to replace the camera.

But here are some things that couldn't hurt.

1.Remove battery get some rubbing alcohol 90pcnt if possible. (not the green stuff)
2.) Batteries may be shot
3.) Soak entire camera in rubbing alcohol
to disipate the water. soak for about 10 minutes

4.) remove from alcohol then let dry for a day or 2 blow dry first to get most of alcohol dry then pack in silica gel (stuff that comes in little packets in shoes and leather jackets

HOPE For the best.. or buy a new camera
