Take note of the two seams on the phone:

Screen seam: This seam separates the screen from the rest of the phone. This is where you should pry.

Frame seam: This is where the plastic frame meets the back cover. It is held in place by screws. Do not pry at this seam.

Before you begin prying, note the following areas on the screen:

Screen flex cable: Do not pry deeper than instructed, or you risk damaging this cable.

Adhesive perimeter: Prying beyond the narrow perimeter without angling the pick will damage the display panel.
