Insert a SIM card eject tool or paper clip into the hole next to the headphone jack.
Press down on the paper clip until the SIM card tray pops out.
Insert a metal spudger into the slot between the dock connector and the antenna cover. Gently pry up near the two tabs to create a small gap between the antenna cover and the silver front bezel.
Insert an iPod opening tool in the gap between the antenna cover and the front bezel. The wedge of the tool should be pointing towards the antenna cover. Slide the tool around the corner and up until you reach the metal backing.
Repeat the same procedure on the other side of the dock connector.
