    Default [WTB] 1st Gen iPhone internal antenna cable

    I ripped mine while replacing the screen and now I have no GSM service, but wifi still works. Does anyone have one or know where I can get one? Its the white antenna cable in the phone. Thanks!

    Is anyone else having this problem and can advise on how/where to get the aerial at a cheap price and will it fix weak/no GSM coverage?

    Thanks in Advance

    In my experience, the two white cables are for wifi. I had to replace a broken one before. While the white cable was broken, the wifi signal was very bad. There was no difference to the cell phone signal with the white cable hooked up or not. By the way, I bought a pair of the wifi cable off ebay for $10 shipping included.
    Hope this helps

    So, myunderstanding is , for bad GSM signal, i should replace the antenna itself (the flat yellow bit) as opposed to the white cables?

    Thanks in Advance

    I damaged my wifi cable when trying to get my case open I just placed my order for the repair parts for 10 also. The signal is very weak now.

    I was trying to repair my vibrate but instead now have no wifi essentially. The worst part is that I removed the headphone jack assembly but trying to get it back together is proving extremely difficult. The screws are so tiny, maybe I don't have the right screw driver. Has anyone repaired the headphone jack assembly successfully?

    I ended up getting the assembly back together with the help of a magnetizing block. Vibrate works great now. I just wish I didn't have to wait 3 weeks to get a stupid cable. Just another disadvantage of living in Canada I suppose.
