Repair loose blue coil without soldering?

I had done a home button repair on my iPhone and now, I have a really poor cellular signal. I suspect it is the blue coil loose since it looks misaligned and I tried checking the antenna cable. WiFi and Bluetooth is strong though. I have no soldering skills so I won't bother something like jumpering it. Is there any other way?

Also, if soldering is the only way, what is the difference between soldering back the inductor and bypassing it besides the difficulty in repair?

Patrick Brooks soldering it would be the only proper way of repairing it. Some people use a circuitwriter pen like this . I find it can get to messy and is not a good repair, but some people report success with it. The difference for the DIY'er is the size of the component as well as obtaining it. It does take a lot of skill and the right tools for this repair. Hope this helps, good luck.
