Getting access to a BlackBerry Torch’s battery, SIM card or MicroSD card is as easy as taking off the back panel or cover. The trick is to know how to take the back panel out.
Based on my past experience with Blackberry smartphones, I tried sliding the panel down vertically at first but realized that getting leverage was a bit tough because of the sliding keyboard. Then I, um, saw the diagram on the back sticker with an illustration on how to hold the BlackBerry Torch when removing the back panel. The lesson as always is: I’m an idiot.
Anywho, now that I’ve rediscovered reading comprehension, what you need to do first is hold the BlackBerry Torch sideways (i.e. horizontally). If you’re right-handed, put your right thumb on the BlackBerry logo on the back and your left thumb parallel to it on the left side.
