you guys are fantastic! this worked great for me. I just used a small section of that aggravating plastic that covers everything we buy now. It may have been a little thinner. it was packaging material for a case of compact fluorescents. at any rate, I inserted the cable, then the spacer on top of that. made the connection perfectly! problem solved. I need someone to think out of the box on another problem I have. While disassembling an iphone 4(verizon) I broke a small connector that seemed to be barely holding on. You can see that guy here iPhone 4 Verizon Upper Antenna Replacement on step 25. does anyone have a workaround? I would be really impressed.
