Snapped Antenna Prong. Will It effect me?
Hi there guys, recently after droping my phone and replacing the battery I found that the bottom gold grounding prong is snapped at the wing and no longer touching the bezel. While I still have full signal using 3g I am worried if this will have any effect on me. Could somebody please explain what i could do in this situation and if i need to do it. Currently the iphone is charging and my signal seems to be fine. Will this be a problem as there is a few millimetres between the broken prong and the bezel.
If so what can i do to fix it and where can i get the prong if i need a new one.
Thanks for all your help.
It will most likely affect battery life..your phone works too hard to keep a good 3g signal so uses up battery. If that prong is attached to your board you can just try and push the tip under the bezel. (I give a light push on the board near sticker (do not remove) which gives a little more room to push tip across and under. It can easily be resoldered on if it comes off, just make sure both prong and board are clean for a good join.
