Data connection is inconsistent after replacing a cracked screen


After replacing my screen, my antenna for data is not working very well indoors and is generally not as consistent. I get the No Service - Emergency Calls Only mode often when I'm indoors or if I move around. I've done the following things to try and fix it:

* hard reset of my phone

* taken it into a cell phone repair place

  • starting up in recovery mode
  • restarting my phone
  • turning the data on and off

The data works, it's just not as strong/consistent as before the screen was replaced. The repair place said that they couldn't find anything wrong with what they performed and didn't see any connection issues when looking at it again. Wifi seems to work ok. Thanks,


Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

So far I've had this happen twice with customer repairs. I'm still trying to figure out what the issue is but my suspicion is that it's similar to what happened with a few LG G4 repairs--that the new frame itself is causing the poor signal. On the G4 I was able to swap between screen+frame assemblies and go from good to a poor signal, even though I could spot not difference between them, at least as far as the spots on the frame where the motherboard made contact with the frame are concerned--the frame with the poor signal was noticeably thicker.
