    I have a nexus 5. The battery was shot. I watched a youtube video, bought a new battery, replaced it, the battery works fine, but now I have no cellular service.

    I tried putting in a different sim card... no dice. Not the sim card.

    I put back in the old battery... no dice. Not the battery.

    I figured, 'dang, i must have broke an antenna' so I bought new antennas and replaced them... no dice. Not the antennas.

    What else could it be? And, can i replace that myself?

    Welcome to the Nexus 5 forum.

    Perhaps there is no hardware damage. Have you considered a Cache Partition wipe, and if no go, a Factory Reset?

    go to setting, About phone, status, SIM status, check the signal strength, normally is -89 dBm 10 asu, if you have much different numbers maybe the antenna is disconnected....

    Signal strength = 109dbm 2 asu
    Service state = in service
    but the cellular network state = disconnected

    I'm assuming this is the problem. How do I reconnect cellular network state?
