Do I need a new cellular antenna?

Hi, my 6 plus fell off the roof while I was working up there and bent the case backwards a bit. It worked without issue for awhile, but today I am not able to use any mobile data unless I am on wifi.

I couldn't remember if I had insurance so I brought it into the AT&T store and asked if I did have the insurance (which I don't) and he mentioned that it seems like the antenna snapped at the top of the phone which sounds quite plausible since that's where the bend is.

Luckily, I have no other issues with the screen or digitize, and the screen was not cracked. I'm hoping if I can replace the back case and the antenna I should be good to go again.

Hoping to get these (ifixit doesn't sell the cellular antenna for the 6plus? Just the 6s?)

And the cell phone repair tool kit from here.

How does that sound?

iFixit does sell the antenna, look here.

Third-party housings may not work as well as original housings, just something to keep in mind. iFixit sells that too but it's more expensive.

This part may also be damaged so inspect your phone properly before ordering parts. I would use this guide.

Keep track of your screws, always disconnect the battery first and be careful with the flex cables, they can tear very easily.
