I was recently attempting to boost my iPhone 4 antenna connection by adding a solder to a contact point near where the iPhone antenna connects to the motherboard. Come to find out, i didn't have the right tools, nor do i have the necessary experience. So while doing so, i soldered off the raised ring on the motherboard that the antenna wire fastens on to. Does anyone have any possible suggestions or ideas on how to work around this problem? I basically have a big iPod touch now, and it sucks!

The point i am talking about is the connection point right in the middle of the photo below.

A legit repair would probably cost as much as a replacement phone. I'd say just bin it, or part it out and eBay stuff like the screen, housing, etc.
