This guide shows how to remove the power button and volume buttons. You can use this guide to replace either or both.

Some guide images will show the battery and rear-facing camera module already removed from the phone. You do not need to remove them for this procedure.

  1. Insert a SIM card eject tool, bit, or a straightened paperclip into the small hole below the SIM card tray, located near the rear cameras on the edge of the phone. Press firmly to eject the tray. When reinserting the SIM card tray, ensure that it is in the proper orientation as shown.

    • The following four steps show how to pry the rear case from the plastic frame. Read through the steps first before attempting the procedure.

    • There are two different seams between the body and the screen of the phone:

    • Display panel seam: This seam is part of the display assembly. Do not pry at this seam, or you will separate and damage the display panel.

    • Frame seam: This is where the plastic frame meets the back cover. Only pry at this seam.

    • There are twelve clips that hold the frame against the rear case. Be aware of their location as you pry the back cover off in the following steps.

  4. As you work, try not to accidentally power on the phone. If you do, turn the phone off before resuming disassembly. Place a suction cup near the bottom edge of the display.

    • Place a suction cup near the bottom edge of the display.

    • Pull on the suction cup with strong steady force.

    • Press the edge of an opening tool straight into the frame seam near the suction cup until the edge wedges between the plastic frame and the back cover's lip.

    • Due to tight tolerances, this will take substantial force. Using a new opening tool with an unmarred edge will help with this step.

  5. Once the opening tool's edge is wedged in position, carefully slide the tool along the bottom edge of the phone. Carefully guide the opening tool around the left corner of the phone while keeping the tool's edge within the seam.
