Issue: Can not remove battery cover

i dyed my battery cover, and it was perfect...now i can not remove the back cover, no matter how hard i try. i really want to be able to put my storage card in there, but cant get the bloody thing off...

i dont have a spare cover, otherwise i would gently "cut" it off...anybody have any ideas as to how to remove it?

It sounds like the dye is acting like a glue and holding your cover on tight. Have you tried taking an thin blade razor knife around the outer edge of your cover to maybe cut through the dye?

Re: Issue: Can not remove battery cover

put the phone in the microwave... easiest way... .. i'm joking... please DON'T do that... lol..
i had the same prob with one of my covers, i left it in the pot tooo long (forgot about it and went on a date), anywho, i learned that if you press down a little harder on the bottom of the battery case (where the lanyard hole is) while pushing towards the top of the phone, it'll pop off.
this is a result of the battery case being somewhat deformed from the heat...

You did remove the cover to dye it and let it dry did you not?

Re: Issue: Can not remove battery cover

Put the phone in the bathroom with the shower running at it's hottest for like 15-20 minutes. If the ink is acting like a glue, the steam might help to loosen it up temporarily.

(put the phone face down on a paper towel, not just on the toilet's porcelain or something, otherwise the condensation might collect.)
