    • Starting at the top of the phone near the antenna, use a screwdriver or other small tool, maybe even fingernails, to pry the rear panel off.

    • There are 4 places where the panel snaps together to the main part of the phone.

    • By systematically prying up the edges of the back panel, moving about a quarter of an inch, and prying again, the panel will begin to lift off.

    • Don't be afraid to damage anything, the panel requires a bit of force to detach.

    • The logic board is only held on with 4 tabs and a data cable in the top right. Simply pry from one side using a screwdriver, popping out the board, before lifting the display data cable.

    • Lift the keypad up from beneath the logic board.

    • It is not glued or secured in any way, so it should come away easily.
