Default Reassembled nexus one after replacing the digitizer having bad reception

I recently replaced my digitizer and the housing after letting my precious nexus one fall on some rocks. Everything went relatively smooth but since the replacement the phone has a really really bad reception. I asume i made a mistake during the reassembly but i have no idea where the antennas are. Can someone point me in the right direction?

Kind regards.

Seems like this connection is a little loose, if necessary place a small piece of tape over it if it won't click together. Did the job just fine on mine

I had the same problem. After I replaced the digitizer I could barley get a wireless signal but everything else worked perfect. I ending up selling it on ebay as a parts phone. Hope you find a solution.

The cell antenna should be at the bottom of the phone because I remember people complaining about how holding the bottom of the phone decreases the signal.

Ah sorry, as the above post said it's under the bottom part of the phone. Something could have been moved in the removal/replacing of the bottom part of the phone, it is awkward to get off.

I would assume it's all the copper colored metal inside the phone that acts as the antenna. mine is similarly plagued, it seems that after taking one apart, it doesn't quite work as well.
