Hello,

Could some one please point me to the location of antenna and its connector so I could visually observe it for damage.

I was taking out my motherboard today and after I put everything back together I lost reception. The max I get is 3g or edge signal with 0 bars. Then it goes to no service. I do have wifi though.

I believe I messed something up when putting it back together or taking it apart. Ive already tried removing and connecting back all the connectors, but no luck. Id like to check the connector to the antenna for rupture. Thanks so much!

First, it depends on what model you have. If it's the AT&T version, then the 3G antenna should be the left side of the frame with the screen facing you. It will be on the right side with the screen face-down on a table while working on it.
