Have they clarified why it's not covered under the 24 Month Manufacturing Warranty @Dixie ?


This may not help but I'd back up the phone and give a Factory Reset a try. 


If this was my phone I definitely would visit my local Samsung Experience Store or Samsung Service Location.  They'll know their Hardware and Software better than a Network. 


Look to see if there is a Liquid Damage Indicators (LDI) water sensor visible just to make sure it's not tripped. There maybe one in the SIM card tray. Threse can be tripped by moisture caused by hot conditions etc. It's not always by immersing it in water or being caught in the rain etc. 



Let them look at it. I wouldn't even mention Giff Gaffs advice.
