please explain wires on mobo

Help!! I am attempting to transfer all on the innards of a s4 to a new display assembly and realized that one of my wires that latch onto the mobo has broken off its connector. Its the grey wire running down the right edge of the phone screen facing down.. What wire is that? Is it important how can I put it back on?

I'm talking about the wire that goes connected next to the sim card on its lower right side as you look at the pic. That grey wire that's loose... How do I reattach that connector?

This is the main cellular RF cable, you will lose signal if you don't connect it.

To connect this cable, you need to solder the broken connector socket back onto the logic board first

Rafael Paredes, add some images of your wire, connector etc. That way we can see what you see. You should not have a whole bunch of wires in there, but there is one for sure which is the antenna cable.
