Singal drop / loss. Hardware problem? Where is the cell antenna?
I have a i337 from AT&T but my display broke some months ago. So I ordered a new one but I think the display was for the i9505. Because when I opened it and looked on it from the back, on the right up corner, there was not enough space for the i337 motherboard. The i337 motherboard has an (additional?) piece, which didn't fit into the display case.
So I cut of the plastic from the display case and then it fitted and went well for a while with great signal.

But now for some days, I have a lot of singal loss and can hardly get more than 2 bars.
I try to find out where the problem is. I was originally on MF3 when everything went well. But then I updated to MK2. And then some time later..the issues startet. So my conclusion was that it must be a software problem..I tried all modems..nothing helped. I updated from MK2 to NB1. Nothing changed. Problem is still there.
So i assume that it must be a hardware issue and it was just a coincident that the issues appeared some days after the update. And now I try to understand how the galaxy antennas work. I think it can be fixed, because I didn't loose the whole signal..it's jut a lot weaker.
So I have some questions..
1) Is it normal, that these 2 contacts don't touch the motherboard on the left side and are flexible? The problem might be there..because this was the part of the phone..which didn't fit well.
2) For what is the long blue patch cable for that connects the bottom and top of the phone? http://www.etradesupply.com/blog/wp-.../IMG_69401.jpg
3) The main cell antenna is at the bottom, right? http://stellatech.com/pubs/uploads/g...e268826f6e.JPG
