    • Try opening picks if the case is not flexing enough, or if it is already cracked to prevent further damage.

    • You can use your hands to push against the corners of the device to attempt to make the gap larger for your plastic opening tool to fit in.

    • Insert the corners of your plastic opening tool into the slots that are on the very outside edge of your device to start disconnecting the panel.

    • On some models, there is a vertical strip of adhesive between the battery and the back cover on the left side of the Verizon logo. Be careful not to damage the battery when separating the adhesive!
