So do you have no service issues, or even wifi issues? Although this may not be the root cause, sometimes it can actually help to have a proper, secure connection to these antenna grounding points. The dreaded #6 and #7 (3GS) connections are radio antenna points. Many of times people put their phones back together and they rush things, don't have proper lighting, have poor eyesight, or even just being careless, they can damage this little, fragile connector.
Before panic and throw your phone out the window, read on. THIS CAN BE FIXED! I found someone selling the connectors and I bought a few. I have done a few of these repairs, and they are pretty straight forward with the right equipment and expertise. Below are the pictures of the surgery!
|Old connector removed|
At the top of the post, you see the original connector in pretty bad shape. No longer did it accept the ribbon side, it can also damage a new ribbon as well. Be careful trying to force anything, these things shouldn't be forced. Onto the next step!
|Tada! The new one on, secure and pristine!|
There you go folks, another happy customer!
