Breathe in. Breathe out. Breathe in. Breathe out. You ready? Probably not as ready as you think you are.
So place your thumbnail on the side slot of the battery cover and get some leverage. Then say a prayer, ask for forgiveness for your sins and start pulling outward. If you’re lucky, the cover will pop out. If you’re unlucky, well, cheer up cause nails grow back in time. Seriously, this cover is just about as tightly stuck as a wedgie applied by Conan the Barbarian. And yes, I used both hands.
If you’re thinking about using a Swiss Army Knife attachment instead of your nails, then more power to you. Just remember that if you scratch your phone or hurt yourself, then it was all your idea, OK?
