Last night, I was testing an external antenna with my Tilt. After I unplugged it the internal antenna is no longer functional. After searching google I found out that I broke something in the phone when connecting the antenna. Out of my frustration I experimented with a few things to use as an antenna. First I tried the inside wire in a twist tie. It worked just like the internal antenna was functioning. Next I tried a piece of copper phone line. The results were great, solid 2 bars 3G around the house and 3-4 bars in my tethering spot. Before it would constantly change to gsm around the house and 2 bars in my tethering spot. Any one have any good ideas for an homemade internal antenna?
