    I can't figure out why.

    Well I can guess and say the antenna is located on the middle piece. It's a piece of copper paper like material. When you buy housings it may come with a middle piece but its bare. Meaning you have to switch everything over, including the copper paper like pieces. I did this with my Tour before sending it to Coveroo. I had no idea that the antenna was this tiny piece of copper paper what needed to be pulled off and then carefully put back on the new housing.

    Well the housing I have has no midplate, it comes with (Bezel, Top cover, Bottom cover and Battery cover) I noticed that problem happens when I install the bezel and top cover, the battery cover alone causes no problem, next i will install the bezel without the top cover, process of elimination.

    I tried to search for schematics the other day, but there are only a handful out there.
    Process of elimination is probably the best bet...
