    I am considering making my own business fixing iPhones. I have already fixed an original iPhone (Blooming hard lol).

    However, I have a question. Most of the faulty iPhone 4's I see on eBay seem to have a 'no service' issue. If I were to buy one to try and fix this, what part would I need? A new antenna? Logic board?

    Thanks for any help!

    I know it might sound foolish, but I saw somewhere that putting a peice of duct tape on the corners of your iPhone 4 might make it work :p.

    I'm not talking about stupid antenna gate....i'm talking about iPhone 4's that have actual signal issues, you know, where the signal doesn't work AT ALL

    So, the question is your iPhone 4 or your service provider. Try another phone. If that other phone have signal than consider switching phone. If the other phone also have no signal than switch carrier or move.

    Your guess is as good as anyone's.
    Buying something like that is a gamble.
