No Service after lock button replacement!

My lock button stopped working so I replaced it and it works along with everything else on the phone except I HAVE NO SERVICE!! The mute button doesn't either button I never use it so I'm not concerned with it. I've checked the service antenna next to the battery connection, it's hooked up to the best of my ability. Everything seems to work but it says I have no service. I did try installing the motherboard before realizing the antenna was underneath it. Could I have damaged anything doing that?

I've already done a reset on my phone too.

Please help!!! I'm phone less right now!!!

Trapping the antenna under the motherboard could have damaged it!

Make sure time and date is also correct failing that I would in get a new dock connector and the antenna is located on that and take it from there..

Also make sure the interconnect cables are seeded correctly there the long black cables that run up the left side if the mother board..

Interconnect cables seem to be good. How hard is it to change the dock connector, and would that be a part that I would HAVE to order online?

I had to manually adjust the time, but after I set it, I set it to "Set automatically".

I'm really in over my head IMO. I'm pretty good at following instructions and I didn't want to pay someone $200 to fix it for me so thought I would try it myself.

Plug into iTunes it will set time and date for you..

If your not confident on the repair I would get a repair centre. But changing the dock is easier than changing the power flex..

Yes you will have to buy it online you can also buy it on ifixit
