Default 8530- no service?

Please Login to Remove!

I recently broke the screen on my curve 8530, took it apart, replaced the lcd and put it back together. The whole phone works great but does not get service. Is it possible that it needs a new antenna and if so where would I able to get one? thanks

I ran a connection diagnosis as well and the signal strength was -256 dBm. Not sure if this is important or not.

That's pretty much no signal.

Did you rip or damage the antenna?

According to ATT, you need to have about -90 or better. -256 is pretty bad.
