Default Unique Gen 2 FOB problem...really need help

Just purchased a 2006 Prius with SKS and a single FOB which was the non-SKS type (black logo). The key only worked in the dash and the lock/unlock buttons on it didn't work (new battery and little LED on FOB blinks when pressed). Also, the red car icon with the key kept flashing when key was plugged in (2 blinks, pause, repeat...over and over).

I had a veteran locksmith come in and he programmed a second non-SKS FOB (though I wanted an SKS one...I'll leave that aside for the moment). He also reprogrammed the original. The light is now off when plugged in the dash, but the buttons on neither FOB still don't work. He said the computer and FOBs are sync'd according to all his software and that the issue must by a wire, antenna, or fuse. I checked all the fuses and even swapped some to be sure. I do not know how to check antenna or wires. What can I do? Could what I hear called a "coil" antenna be disconnected and so the car is not getting the signal? Thanks. Note: I could assume the guy tricked me, but before I chase that possibility, I want to ask folks here for ideas and figure out how to check the antenna (where is it?) I have access to techstream software if that can provide insight.
