    Default Disassembling the iPhone

    I've been looking at these online videos and tutorials on disassembling the iPhone and I'm curious if you guys could give some input to how accurate they are.

    Particularly this one:
    http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/iPhone/Rear-Panel/105/4/

    Based on what everyone is saying, it's next to impossible to take apart the thing without damaging it. However, these guides make it seem like it is possible. Not only that, but there seems to be like 298374234 different ways to take it apart (some people pry the thing apart, others disconnect the "tabs" and slide it off, etc.).

    So what's the deal? =) Is the thing glued together, or just held on by tabs?

    What did you use to pry the case open? I'm thinking about using a razer (very carefully) to pry it just enough to slide a guitar pick in there to slide around...
