This is just a guess after looking at the tear down on Ifixit. I would be looking at the flat antenna connections and making sure they didn't come loose. It looks like you could easily catch the antenna cable with the adhesive strip you pull out from under the battery.

Hi,

Here is a link to the Ifixit teardown for your phone.

In Step 7. of the teardown it mentions flat antenna cables, just after removing the battery. Perhaps you loosened their connections when you removed the battery.

Hopefully this is of some help.

Haha. I was just commenting about the antenna cables. I must have clicked on the question just before you answered, and my screen hadn't refreshed.
