    Arrow *** How to remove BSE skin from Iphone w/o DAMAGE***

    I have to return a bricked Iphone to Apple & claim it has never been activated so I need to take off this BSE skin I put on the phone but have heard it strips the chrome stuff off the back of the Iphone (not good) !!!!

    Any suggestions on how to get it off without screwing up the Iphones case.....Anyone else had to take one off? what were your results & how did you do it


    Regards

    i'd peel it off slowly, try using the same type of application solution (very slightly soapy water, or distilled water)... might work, loosening off the adhesive.
    I think it isn't the chrome but the iphone lettering and serial number etc on the back that gets pulled away with the skin

    When you take it out (slowly, most case you don't need water), you will expect the serial and IMEI numbers are imprinted on the case.

    Do not worry. It's not the paint from iPhone, it's from the engraved (grooved) letters and numbers that made an impression on the case.

    I have reapplied a lot of times without any problems of paint coming off.

    Good luck!

    i took mine off with no problem, i really see no way the engraving on the back could come off since its lasered in and the back plate is anodised aluminum not painted so that wont come off either.

    A bit heat wouldn't harm. I suggest use hair drier and warm it a bit if it helps
