Hey there, my silly missus recently tried to pry the back off of her Nexus 5, upon doing so the phone is no longer able to connect to any mobile networks, make calls, SMS etc. Does anyone have any advice?

I had this problem with nfc and wireless charging, turned out the back panel just wasn't set properly. I believe there are antennas that need to contact components on the motherboard. Try pushing a little harder all over the back until you hear it snap.

ARENT YOU THE GUY FROM GBATEMP?! Try properly snapping on the back cover. There are various antennas and perhaps they weren't properly lined up. Don't really think removing a back cover will cause this, my 2 cents is that it just isn't properly snap shut.

EDIT: pretty sure you are. You owned an Xperia Play and we discussed it in a GBATemp thread before saying that android 4.1 was rolling out to Nexus devices. We also met in the Gin2JB thread.

Yeah, that's me! Been a while since I've been over there, and I've since moved from an Xperia Play to an Xperia Z1, and a Z2 in the next few weeks.
