I used a paper plate cut a hole out the size of the rear lense and used the tip of a regular iron and kept the body of the iron away from the phone! Once it was on for about 5 seconds I used a single edge razor blade to remove small bits of glass from the ring. I immediately vacuumed any debris from the phone or the paper plate i had below the phone!

2 paper plates, iron ( no steam ) alcohol to clean camera, vacuum cleaner, jewelers glasses, white light!

The glass is stuck on there really good and just heat will not help much. The glass will just keep breaking while you remove it and some will get inside. The best way to do this is by taking apart the phone and removing the camera to be able to prevent it from getting damage. You can also try using a small tip vacuum cleaner right at the camera while prying out the glass bit by bit while keeping it warm so it doesn’t end up falling in the camera.

I replaced the lens without taking the phone apart.

Somewhere someone recommended using a utility knife and carefully breaking the lens out piece by piece.

I did that with a utility knife and finished up with an X-acto knife. It worked fine for me.
