iPhone 6S no service after replacing the charging port

I replaced my iPhone 6S charging port and now it shows that it has no service. I have tried a couple different charging ports from different sources and I get the same thing. What could be causing this?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Did you connect the small black coax antenna cable that's attached to the charging port? I believe that's the wifi antenna, but you haven't specified which service you aren't able to use on it. Also, if you have attached said cable, is the connector on the board still completely attached? You may have dislodged the solder points if you ripped it off half-hazardly.

Other than that, I have seen only one time before when the antenna at the top left of the board came undone for no good reason. You'll have to the the entire board out to see if it's attached, but it's worth a shot if nothing else works.

One more dumb question, you haven't put it in the microwave recently, have you? I'm not trying to be a dumbass by asking that either. I had someone come to my store with reception issues on a 6S and we, eventually, figured out the him putting it in the microwave caused all of his issues.

If you have a microscope, or other means of magnification, check to make sure that there is no adhesive or other debris in the FPC connector on the board.

Recently I had the same issue after the same repair, and there was a little adhesive from the charge port we removed that went over two pins. These pins were part of the antenna circuit that integrated with the baseband. One of the pins was also on the power rail, so after clearing out the debris the gas gauge operated correctly and the battery life was restored to normal.

Hope this helps a little bit.
