    You might also want to try just putting duct tape on the back of the antena cover and then pulling hard. Heard that this works as long as the tape is really sticky. If you screw up the antena cover you can buy one on ebay for cheap.
    for sale stealthsim 60 dollars.

    located in hamilton ontario canada, will only ship to North America.

    Something that works really well for me is sliding a flat screwdriver in between the battery and the backplate, just to the side of the leftmost tab with the screwhole. Once it's inserted I just use it as a lever and pry upwards. If there's no glue it pops right open! Repeat for the other side.

    WARNING: If you slide the screwdriver in at a downward angle and it's sharp enough, you will pierce the battery!!! This can result in a fire/explosion. Try to keep it parallel to the backplate as you slide it in; you don't need to go too far.
