    I bought my friend's broken iPhone 4 from him after he got a 4S. The only problem with it was a broken dock connector, which I replaced using this iFixit guide.

    Since I replaced that part, everything works fine except the cellular connection. I did a complete restore of the phone but still nothing.

    Can anyone tell me what I might have done wrong during the process that would have messed up the cell connection but nothing else?

    Thanks in advance for your help. :)

    Did you make sure to reconnect the cell antenna? It seems like it's all very close together. If I were you, I'd double check inside the phone. You've already ruled software, so it has to be hardware.
