What goes out after 15 minutes? You need to be more specific.

Also what does it say under Settings > General > About > Network (Hopefully Sim not provisioned or Phone not allowed.)

Also there's plenty of Antenna ribbon flex cables inside the phone. Which one?

The L shaped one is for 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz Wi-Fi + Bluetooth along with the small Wi-Fi antenna housing piece at the top left of the phone inside that has like 5 screws on it and two screws to top of housing side.

The antenna cable that plugs near the battery connector I think is for 3G cellular signal, could be 4G as well but I may be wrong as I'm not sure.

The gps is inaccurate, the Bluetooth is spotty and the 2.4 wifi is affected also...the ribbon I speak of is the L shaped antennae and under about/network, it says AT&T


Is the iPhone metal housing bent in any way as in like a full bend where it's not straight any more when you look from it at the sides?

My guess is it's an issue with the Bluetooth / Wi-Fi IC chip on the logic board, either from physical damage drops (especially bent housing) or liquid damage which would require micro soldering.


No bends.... no drops and no water damage
