iPhone 4 reception loss due to loss of copper clip?

Hi guys, below is an image of the iPhone 4 logic board. Recently while taking the logic board out the copper part circled fell off and now the iPhone has no signal. I was just wondering how much that would effect the overall gsm signal?

A lot!

Wireless and GPS too will have less and less Signal.

I lost that too due to a non authorized service point (the guys who think that the producer has put that part for fun there) and I ended up taking the phone to Apple for exchange!

Find the clip and put it in it's place if you want to have an operating phone!

I just broke something on the main board... I can't get the signal ! Or when I get it, it's only for a few seconds, than it drops down to no signal... I broke the tip just beside at the right the little pointed thing on the image... tryed to glue it but it seems worst... it's still on guarantee but I played with it, I changed the frame for a new one because it was folded due to a truck passing on it, well, do you thing they would echange it anyway ? When they exchange it, do they tear it down before exchanging ?

Thanks !

It's all up to the discretion of the genius that you are dealing with. Sometimes they will take off the rear cover to make sure all of the LSI's are still intact and that there is no evidence of tampering and sometimes they will take on look at it and put a replacement in your hand within 10 minutes. I have taken my phone in for a replacement (iPhone 4) twice, both times i had tampered with it and both times i got a replacement no questions asked. Some people say differently, its all up to the luck of the draw.

I just lost the clip. Is there a way to purchase a new one?

I looked all over for it and could not find a way to buy it? Doe it have a special name to look for?

Thanks

Signal problems can also be related to damage to the blue inductors on the board. They are near the antenna connector. Check here
