Broke Off 1 Pin of Cell Antenna = Bad Reception. Fix?

Hey guys,

I snapped off one of the feet of the antenna bridge (the one on the right) in an iPhone 4 and now I only get pretty bad reception from the device. Is there any way to fix this or do I just have to get a new cellular antenna?

Any help is appreciated.

You can also get a replacement antenna for less than $10 and it should fix the low reception. On a level of 1-10 of difficulty to replace, 1 being easiest 10 being hardest, it is a 1.

Already ordered one, took mine out again to clean it today and it's fairly simple. Thanks again.

before to change the antenna try to clean its contact as the grease of the skin can cause poor signal.

Thanks for the tip, after cleaning the feet with windex the reception did improve but it's still not up to the original strength. I guess I will have to replace the antenna after all.

Thanks again!
