I guess i should have asked can i use a paperclip to get into the case to get to the battery so i can remove the battery & put the battery back in & would this possibly fix my problem & allow me to get the phone to turn back on


two screws at the bottom of the case will not be removed with a paperclip don't even try or you could screw up the head and make it next to imposible to remove

No, you will puncture the battery and it'll be nasty.

Always use the plastic tab first. If the tab breaks, try using a credit card to pry up the battery FROM THE OTHER SIDE instead.

I would not recommend it. If you puncture the battery you will get a nice breath of toxic ammonia. Try a spudger or even a flat head screwdriver. There is a bunch of adhesive under the battery you need to fight against.
