  I do not know that all 2880s are same or not. But all 2880 that I
and my friends in Japan bought from Millicom, had a 2 small metal
loose parts inside of the waterploof case - just upside of the
RF-IF shield cover.
  I do not know the purpose or effect of these 2 metal parts. The
plastic shield cover of RF-IF stage was courted by some kind of
metal so it will have another purpose or effect than shield the
RF-IF stage. Stabilize or Reduce the standing wave at inside of
the case? or ground contact between the upper case and lower body?
I do not know.

  I am using all of my 2880 with these metals just same as when
I got it. But when I tried to replace it, my 2880 works fine.
