Antenna wire removal broke the connectors from the module

Community Manager

First off I am very firmilliar with electronics, and I have worked with similar boards. I was going to remove the antenna wires from my Joule 570x, so I can move the module to another carrier board. When I applied very little pressure to remove the wire, the whole connector pulled off of the module! It looks like it wasn't attached very securely, I then attempted to remove the other one being the most careful you possibly can, and the same thing happened. Is there a chance it is a defect? Or are there just no warnings and you are not supposed to remove the antenna wires? Am I able to file a exchange? Thanks!
