No Service after a tear down. What is the problem?

Yuhao Min - Reply

it is hard to define which part causes such problem. Make sure the signal antenna connects with logic board perfectly.

Would the water proof go out because of the removal/teardown ?

Tam Alden - Reply

Most likely. The back is glued on so unless you can make that seal perfect again, the phone wont be water proof.

Discalimer: I don't own a z5 and have never taken one apart but I have dissasembled my z3 to replace the screen and they look very similar.

Hi Lenka,

short question was that a normal xperia z5 or the dual SIM Version because it looks like the SIM reader is long enough to Support two SIM cards. It would be nice if you could check if there are two SIM ports here.
