    Just tossing in my two cents here.
    Are the parts you're describing here, painted? MANY paints are metallic based and this might be your problem (just another guess of a potential source of your problem). At the frequencies these devices operate, many paints could cause a problem...for the phone, the bluetooth and the GPS. For example, those of us with aftermarket GPS devices installed in our cars with external antennas are warned to NOT paint the antenna mounted on the vehicle. The reason is the metal based paints which many (most) mistankingly use for this purpose.
    Hope you figure this one out and please let us know the answer.

    Edit: See Post #23 for more info!!!!

    Pretty sure you hit the nail right on the head.

    According to the FCC acceptance submission, the antenna is located in the back bottom center area...I'm guessing it's actually "printed" right onto the circuit board but it's not clear from the pictures I've seen.
    Try this link (doesn't seem to always work though)... https://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/oetcf/eas/...#39;L6ARCN70UW (see the RF Exposure Report for the 9700). The location of the antenna is staed as above. Unfortuantely, it isn't specifically identified on any of the pictures in the FCC submission

    Thanks for the info, I just tried the link you provided, but it doesn't work.

    I changed that link. try this: https://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/oetcf/eas/...#39;L6ARCN70UW However, not much there that I haven't already mentioned (unfortunately). Also, see my earlier post regarding paints. Good luck.

    The antenna is hidden in the back under the battery cover, only problem is it's surrounded in plastic. If you changed housing, AND you changed the middle that holds the metal shield, then you needed to remove this part that is almost impossible to tell that it is actually removable. Take off battery cover, you will notice that below(not under) the battery of your original case that you have almost like a spiral design, thats your antenna. You need to remove that. I'll upload pics. Glad to be of service .

    My advice : Stop trying it yourself and go to a shop!
    Maybe you moved something while replacing the housing.

    here is what l know,9700 is a 3 piece ciriut,on the back you take the cover off,around the battery is a plastic bessil,at the bottom is a small metal insert,that is the start of anttenia,it goes through the metal housing to a sticker attennia,havent found it yet but l will,then it travel through housong to end at middle housing,you will notice looking at phone on left side at bottom there is a littl chrome piece ,that comletes anttenia,hoe it helps,l do believe once you change your chrome cover some how you are causing ciruit to not be complete,l have done same thing and am stil tryin to figure it out,good luck
