Default No 3/4G after water damage

Hello,

Someone gived a nexus 5 to me, because it was dead (dropped in toilet)
I took it apart and cleaned all with alcohol, and olmost everything is working fine now..

But when i place a simcard like mine (T-Mobile NL) it will give an G icon above with full coverage.
And it will stay @ G only so seems that 3/4G is not working anymore.. i THINK that the black speaker box
is damaged (where the 3/4G antenna is in?) Can someone tell me if i can test this?

And yes APN stuff is all ok. tried factory reset but still not working.

I think its solved.. i tried an other carrier today (Telfort) that uses KPN network. it said R above @ signal, and i was able to download / internet very fast.

And i want to give the phone to someone that uses Vodafone. Going to check this tommorow.
