iPhone 4 Contact Clip what for?

History

Today I 'played' with my iPhone, removed the back and lost the contact clip. Now when I connect my iPhone to the charger the charging shows up, but actually my phone is not charging at all. Does the contact clip take part on charging the device?

Pls, help me!

Could you take a photo of this "clip" so we can see what exactly you are talking about? Cheers ;)

martin,

This clip should not play a role in charging (I might be wrong). I would try reseating the battery connecter and check if its connected properly.

As well it is a possibility the ribbon from the connector to the battery might be damaged.

hope this helped.

This pin connects the GSM antenna on the back plate to the phone. Without it you would get a very weak signal.

hello ! sometimes when you disconnect the battery is necesary to restore your iphone.if not, your gsm signal is weak,phone app has 1st hardware error aka you can call but nobody answer and you cannot close the call even if you press the home/lock button and the list may continue.that clip is seems has a important purpose in gsm signal because thru it, the back cover which works like a antena gives you more signal. i hope it was helpful !
