We did not have an actual back cover or battery for the phone we were given. Therefore, the first couple of steps will be without pictures.
Hold the phone with the back side facing you.
Press down on the silver tab towards the bottom end of the phone.
Carefully lift up the back casing to reveal the battery.
Use a plastic opening tool to pry between the front and back cover.
Start prying from wherever it is easiest to separate the silver and black plastic of the covers.
There are 5 securing clips on the front panel to disconnect.
Pry gently to prevent breaking the plastic clips when removing the front panel.
Once all the clips have been freed, the front cover will lift away from the phone.
