can you make some photos too? because I don't really understand what points on motherboard need to be joined/soldered.


The wire is small but ifyou magnify the pictures you can see where to solder.

My phone has had terrible reception since a drop on the floor, given the delicate nature of this part of the PCB I'm not surprised...I'm itching to try this fix.
Did anyone actually get their Blade working properly?

I would like to confirm that is a hardware problem, and no software can solve the issue (other than applications such as "Signal Boost" by Orange, which uses a WiFi connection; but does not increase GSM reception).

I have followed the photos above, unfortunately I do not have a soldiering gun, therefore tried various different methods. I applied copper cables, and that seemed to work. But it wasn't too effective and came loose too often; so I put some staples in (I have not stapled anything). I have taken out a staple, bend it, and made the two items touch. I have placed 3 staples to increase connectivity, and I now recieve full signal [on O2/giffgaff] indoors.

I wouldn't recommend the staple idea, since it can come loose if the phone is dropped. What I would recommend is that you solder, or ask for a warranty (if you're out of warrenty, you can blag it to the CS). :)

And what if i insert a little wifi/rf antenne to that socket, next to the radioantenne ? Could that work, to improve the signal ?
