THANK YOU. You have saved my phone.
I bought an HD2 second hand about two months ago and have been really enjoying it since. The other day I was showing a friend the screen and passed it to him for a minute. When I got it back I had little to no reception. Ever since I have been getting one bar, or even none, in places where I previously had excellent service. I am so glad I found this thread.
The fix itself takes a Torx T5 screwdriver and about 5 minutes. I did it wrong so I want to make so sure noone does what I did... you remove the screws and then you have to insert something, I used a credit card, as deep as it can go up at the top to remove the chassis. I initially pryed away the screen by going to shallow which was a huge mistake, but which so far has not had any repercussions I can notice.
When I got the chassis off, I noticed right away that the bottom most contact was bent all the way down to the motherboard. I very gently pryed this up so that it was level with the other one, put the chassis back on, booted up, and immediately reception was back to normal.
Again I really cannot thank you enough, without your help my brand new phone would be collecting dust in my electronics graveyard and I'd be shopping for a new phone.
