After a visit to the apple store my i6 as been deemed damaged. the back-plate took a bad hit and the i6 now as a bend to it causing a slack between the screen and back-plate. Apple tech says this could cause antenna (he says attached to backplate) to loose contact with sim card causing the phone to search or short(fried) the sim card. Not sure if that is possible.
I'm looking to replace only the bent back-plate with any AS-IS A1549 Verizon iPhone 6 from eBay or such. I'm confident in my skills to take apart my phone and rebuild with know good parts.
Is the antenna attached to back-plate? or am I wasting my time.
