Need help with logic board repair

While I was replacing my screen I believe I damaged my logic board. The component circled in the picture is what broke. Does anyone know what it was? I imagine I can't just jumper the leads as my phone would could not find verizon's network after turning it back on.

James Greenberg, the missing part is reference designator U21_RF. It is a MURATA 824-2170MHZ 0402 package and appears to be one of Murata's "Chip Multilayer LC Filters (BPF)". Something like this most likely. Hope this helps, good luck.

Fantastic! Thank you for the fast and helpful reply. It makes sense that it is a filter for the antenna circuit and totally explains my cell service problem. Where by chance did you find the schematic for the pcb? Is it a personal project or something you mind sharing?
