I'll phone the centre up on Monday and ask whether they fitted a sponge, because by the sounds of it, it was just a new backplate.
I agree with buzxx777, my experience was that fitting the sponge is the repair which improves signal quality and strength drastically and reduces electronic interference.
If the shop only changed the backplate, they only did half the job. As the sponge is free under warranty, I would go back and ask about it.
