Not recommended - The shields need to be present to control EMI emissions (to meet FCC and other governmental emission rules) as well as protect other parts of the device from the Tx/Rx noise.

If you have physical problems preventing you from putting the phone back together you need to see why and fix the cause before you start redesigning the phone by pulling off parts like shields.
