...the call of the exposed Torx screws (#5) was just too much. I wanted to see if I could get to the antennae test pots, and improve reception, http://androidforums.com/motorola-droid/19985-homemade-antenna-breakthrough-3g-1x-switching.html ...since there are a few buildings in my town where signal has a hard time penetrating. Unfortunately, my results were not as good on the Defy as the Droid. I'll keep trying to connect to other antennae, as the (2) pots exposed by removing the plugs (see pic #4) did not seem to help. When attaching wire to the pot on the left, my wifi signal seemed to improve by about 10dBm, but results were sporadic. Ultimately, I'd like to sure up the GSM antenna with more internal "wire".
