Hey ive had my sayno 7400 for over 2 years now and today I pulled it apart to change the keypad part. I was real careful pulling it apart n got it all back together sweet.. turned it on and it got reception for about 10 seconds then stopd and since it doesn't pick up any. I've called telecom and they said to try a couple of things which hasn't worked.
 
I can't really afford to get the phone sent away to get fixed. wondering if anyone has had any problems like this or anything i could try? any help would be great. thanks

being that the phone had reception before the problem must be related to your disassemble.  Pull the phone apart again, on the back plate of the phone is a peice of gold metal that contacts the antenna to the phones circiut board. Stretch that out again (so when the phone is reassemled there is additional tension on it) also using an eraser (pencil rubber) polish this atenna connector and where it contacts the circuit board. Hope this helps
