Unhappy [Q] Stuck on Flight Mode ON - No Wifi, No Bluetooth, No Cellnetwork

I dropped my phone in the water. Got the battery out quickly and opened up the phone from A to Z (except the circuitry under the screen) and got it dry, left it to dry for 48 hours on top.
Now, my phone is back together and it boots, screen works, sound works, OS works.

But the phone is always in Airplane mode when I boot it. If I try to change the Airplane Mode to Off from the menu shown while pressing Power, it says it turned it Off, but it's then greyed out (can't turn it On and says its off). If I go in the Settings in Wireless settings, Flight mode is still on. If I try to turn it Off from there, it says, turning on wireless things.. but stays there.. If i go <-back and go back into Wireless settings, flight mode is still On. If I go in Wifi settings, the wifi is off, if I select it to be on, it starts scanning and eventually says: Unable to scan networks.

So, I'm wondering, what part is busted ? Anyone know ? My connections seem to be OK, I've put it back as it was. I'm basically bummed.
Also, in settings-status my IMEI is unknown and pretty much everything relating to connectivity. USB works though.

Any ideas? tricks ? anything ? other than buying a new phone to replace this one.

Cheers.
