No phone calls can be made, unless speaker is used.

Hi There,

Today I have replaced an display of the iphone 4S. When testing I discovered that (when placing a call) the other end can't hear me. Only weird beeping cracking sounds are heard. Putting the phone on the speaker, everything is fine. No recording can be made by the dictaphone.

I think that by assembling the phone again, the ribbon cable of the noise cancelation mic is damaged.

Which ribbon cable do I need to order, and (of course) is there a guide for this?



Appologies for my bad English.... :-)
