No pressure contact next to battery connector

Description:

While attempting to resurrect/troubleshoot a broken/damaged used iPhone 4 GSM I just purchased (screen is blank), I noticed after removing the back panel and removing the battery connector there is no pressure contact present in this phone. The owner prior to me did have the front and back pane replaced with a color scheme set. Whether or not there ever was a pressure contact in this phone I am unsure.

Question:

So, my question for you guys is this: should there be a pressure contact present in this iPhone 4 GSM (A1332), if so, where do I get one? Thanks in advance for any direction with my above concerns.

Respectfully,

Brian Davis

My iPhone 4 has a Pressure contact, but i never took mine off, so i dont know what issues it causes when its not attached.

its apart of the antennae system that receives GSM RF's (if your AT&T) and Bluetooth.

Don't think that just because you have great cell phone signal, you dont need that pressure contact. That piece also receives the Bluetooth radio frequency.

Hmm...ok, thanks for your comments! (:

$20! That seems awfully high so I did some prowling on my own. I found one at a much more inexpensive price...about 20 x's cheaper (: here you go, for anyone else in the future needing one:
