    I recently dropped my new G2x (used, but new to me and expensive- but no warranty) after only having it one week and it was just a short drop from my pants pocket to a cussioned laminate floor, but it hit right on the bottom right corner and while the case is completly undamaged, the screen shattered. So much for gorilla glass.[​IMG]

    So I ordered a $70.00 OEM original digitizer glass and spent the better part of a night watching a youtube video on the removal of the glass (but no reinstall info) and replacing the digitizer screen. Long story short, the glass replacement went great, but in reconnecting all the flex cables and antenna cable to the motherboard, of all the connectors, the micro miniature antenna coax conector just wouldn't align and go in. I tried to pull on it to get a tad more slack and I inadvertently pulled off the connector end. There's no repairing the connector as the inner wire is hair thin, and no way to work with that micro connector end. Consequently I have a perfectly functioning smartphone with no ability to connect to a network without that antenna connector. I need either the inner plastic case or just the antenna jumper that connects the antenna from the base of the phone to the motherboard. I could have shown what I need in a photo, but I can't post an ouside link as a newbie...[​IMG]
    I'm out enough money now to have bought a new G2x so price is a big consideration. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
