To remove battery, slide a flat object under the battery and lift. The plastic opening tool will be the best tool for this. It is possible that the battery may be glued onto the phone. If this is the case, slightly heat the glue to allow removal without breaking the battery. To heat the glue,  use a simple hair dryer, but be very careful as not to overheat the phone and damage any components. It is possible that the battery may be glued onto the phone.
