Antenna went bad slowly 3 times

My antenna has slowly gone out on my iPhone 6. It started by going to roam in places where I used to get service, then it just went to searching. Resetting network settings worked a couple times, but only for an hour or so. Replaced SIM, nothing. Had the internal antenna replaced and it worked for a day or two and then went to roam and then searching. I replaced the internal antenna and WiFi antenna and the same thing again, roam and then searching. What could be the cause of my issues? Rear case “actual” antenna issues?

Would a typical repair shop be able to perform this if it needs it. Slide my SIM card back in and it worked for a second, then checked the “flatness” of the phone and gave it a good press seems to be work long for the time being.


@wmyoungiv If the repair shop does microsoldering it should be able to fix it in most cases by removing the chip and reworking it, disposing of the oxide and/or most fragile solder joints. If the board inside lays flat contacts might work longer but it's usually a matter of time that signals/power will stop flowing completely if not taken care of.

It’s probably not an antenna related problem, iPhone 6 are known to develop this issue especially if they’ve been dropped or got bent. When you get the no service/searching try dialling *#06#, that should give in return the IMEI number..if you get nothing it’s a typical baseband fault that needs a microsoldering repair.
