Default [Q] How is this part called

Hi!

I noticed my earpiece is not working at all and decided to disassembly my Relay. It was a shock for me, when I saw, that the part marked on red here: http://i.epvpimg.com/A6xZd.jpg
looks like that in my phone:

(I am even wondering how is my phone working now...).

Could somebody give me a name of this part? And can it be a reason for not working earpiece, or should I disassembly my Relay "deeper"?
I found this: https://www.gounlock.com/details.php?itemId=8555
I was looking only on the length of this cable, so I'm still not sure if it's what I'm searching for.

Thank you for your answer demkantor.
The second post which I didn't read before helped me mostly: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...33&postcount=2

Could you confirm if the part I put with a link in 1st post is what am I searching for? I couldn't find anything for "main flex cable" in Google and also I don't think it's the same part.
And is it possible to change it without replacing the whole screen-part of the phone? The disassembly manual ended with same step I did.

Unfortunately I can't say for sure as I haven't yet torn this phone apart myself
I would recommend to pull out the broken cable and try to match it physically to the one you linked
Otherwise search out a thread that someone here has done this and ask if they can confirm
Best of luck!
