Check the top screw on the logic board and the contact of the logic board underneath the screw. This is another antenna for cell reception. Usually they don't break at the same time.

The top screw press the logic board into the housing, ensuring top antenna connection. Usually the primary antenna is connected next to the battery but this secondary one can solve some issues as well. Especially when the bottom one is broken.
