Sure. First some background. For nearly one year i was quite happily using
shapeways printed case. Like month ago suddenly i found the phone discharged
and couldnt charge it (the trickle charging didnt work). After inserting
charged battery from GTA02 it booted but did not register to network. So i
opened the case and found out that the metal antenna strip is broken.
Fortunately i have spare one, so i replaced it. But the problems didnt go
away. And while replacing antenna i also broke off the external GPS connector.
Later i have found out that i can register to GSM network at places with
strong gsm signal (at work). Another symptom is that the phone eats a lot of
current (~100mA in suspend ~500mA when on).
So i wonder what all is wrong. I seems that GSM antenna is not working, but
that does not explain why the phone wont trickle charge and eats so much
current - because GSM should be by default off.
Now i can use the phone just for development...
