[* black] Flip the iPhone back over and insert a plastic card between the left side of the battery and the rear case.
[* icon_caution] Don't pry under the topmost section of the battery, near the volume up button and mute switch, or you may damage the volume controls ribbon cable, which is adhered to the rear case just beneath the battery.
[* icon_caution] Be careful to keep the card as flat as possible to avoid bending the battery, which may damage it and cause it to release dangerous chemicals.
[* black] Press the card in farther to break up the adhesive behind the battery.
