Disconnecting the Wi-Fi antenna.

For enough room to disconnect the Wi-Fi antenna on this phone, the ground finger must first be removed. Apple moved this finger out from beneath the battery connector, making battery replacement that much easier.

The Wi-Fi antenna and chip are perhaps the only RF components of the phone that did not receive a revamp. The board utilizes a Broadcom BCM4329 - the same chip found on the GSM iPhone 4. This antenna is nearly identical to the unit found in the GSM iPhone 4.

The speaker chamber and cellular antenna assembly come out easily enough.
