    Default [Antenna] Replaced the Metal Back Cover > now Poor signal

    A few days ago that I started to notice that in some places had a poor signal, Then I did a test with the iphone my girlfriend at the same place and under the same conditions, I note that her iphone has better signal than mine. Both has been unlocked by the same method (iLiberty+) and has the 1.1.4 firmware. Also I changed the sim's betewin iphones And got the same result.

    The only difference between it and mine is that I change the metal cover. I ain't broke anything inside. I just remove the cable antenna and put it again in it place.

    This is the better example:

    back cover is not your antenna but the metal around your LCD is the one that touch your antenna...
    and your picture is not best ex. because of unsame network who knows M&M has good signal on
    your place try the same network provider.

    try to replace the 2 white wires... They are so small they can be cut easely . Ive snapped mine when I closed the cover after h/w unlocking it and my signal was shit... Ive ordered 2 new and im about to change them today... When they were cut, i was almost unable to make a phone call inside (even inside my car) and outside, i didn't get 5 bars like you on this picture

    http://www.cnn.cn You can order them on this website and they cost about 16$ shipped so it's not expansive
