You can try a couple of things to try and save it. Phones do not like water. If you are mechanically inclined, take the phones rear cover and front covers off. Take the internal parts and put them on the dash of your car all afternoon. If you cant take apart try this or you can put the phone in the oven (no joke) at a real low setting for a while. You don't have much time to dry it out before it gets corroded so do this right away. If it doesn't work you can always trade it in for another phone.
Offline mode is an indicator of water damage or moisture damage. This is considered physical damage to the phone, and one would have to pay the deductible if you had insurance in order to get a replacement. If you don't have insurance, check for upgrade eligibility.
Has the phone been dropped or gotten wet? If you look at the antenna area are there any cracks in the housing? If any of these are true you may have a bad connection between the antenna and the main board of the phone. If you can see any cracks in the housing i would recommend taking it to the shop for repair. Its not too expensive a repair usually around 30 to 40 dollars. If you need any help let me know!
