Antenna problem possibly?
« on: September 01, 2014, 01:08:43 PM »
I have a G2 that is semi functional at this point. I can get 4g LTE and send text messages most of the time, but I can not send or receive calls whatsoever. Every once in a while a random call will come through, but I've had people call me stand right next to me and it goes right to voicemail. I did replace the LCD screen and digitalizer, since then I've had this problem. I don't know if it's worth it to try and repair it again or just get rid of it. Any help someone can offer?

How many "bars" are you typically getting?  Ensure wi-fi is off when looking at the signal bars, and keep in mind that voice calls use 4G (HSPA/HSPA+), 3G (UMTS), or GSM and that LTE and EDGE are data only and not voice.  You didn't mention who your carrier was, so I don't know if this applies (above example is for GSM carriers).

It may be that one of the ribbon cables that hooks to your antenna got damaged; that is, the connectors are seated properly but maybe there is a hairline break in the ribbon cable.  It's probably worth a look to take off the cover and examine the cables with a magnifying glass.

That said, I have never taken apart a G2, so I have no useful advice to give but there are breakdown videos out there.  I would also remove and reseat the SIM card just in case if your G2 is a GSM model, can't hurt.

You say that you cannot make calls in addition to not being able to receive calls.  What happens when you dial a number?
