    So I finally finished installing a new lcd and audio jack into my iphone 3g, everything works fine cept I always get "No Service" I've tried defaulting my network settings, different sim cards, and restores but nothing seems to work. The only thing is that when I was installing the parts i cracked/bent the main board at a certain part, but after inspection it seems that i didnt break any connections. Heres a picture of where it is bent and a little cracked...



    After some research and looking around my iphone I figured out that the part that is bent seems to be near the port that the antenna plugs into, i looked at my antenna and its kinda weird, its somewhat purplish(somewhat hard to see though).

    What do you guys think? Any feedback is greatly appreciated, thanks.

    Yup that is the antenna that you bent. So I would assume the mainboard is damaged.
