    • Be Careful! Do not insert the spudger in between the keyboard and screen. This could break the keyboard off the phone.

    • If your phone contains a memory card, you may want to remove it before proceeding with this step.

    • Insert spudger in the bottom corner as seen in the picture. Carefully slide the spudger from the bottom towards the top as seen in the second picture.

    • Lift the back case off completely.

    • The speakers might be dangling and unsecured.
