How to remove the back cover on the Nexus S

Kind of silly but I was stumped when I went to open the back cover to insert the battery and sim card. I was used to sliding off back plates so didn't know how to pop this off. Anyway - all you do is stick your fingernail in the little gap on the top of the phone and then pry off the whole cover. It just snaps off and back on again - no sliding or secret latches etc.

Since it's made by Samsung, a harsh word should also be enough to make the lid fly off :p

Thats rubbish, my galaxy s, galaxy s2 and galaxy nexus have never had the back come off accidently.

I was obviously exaggerating. But if you're denying that their battery covers are pretty flimsy affairs for something attached to a high-end device, then you are exaggerating, also ;)

I can't speak for all Samsung phones but I know the S2 only has a flimsy battery cover when the cover is off the phone. You wouldn't have a clue it's so thin when it's on the phone, it simply becomes a good piece of design which allows: more heat to escape, the phone to weigh less and for the phone to be thinner.

No...it's not an HTC Incredible :p!!

EDIT: Oops, turns out it was an Evo 4G that saved the guy's life.
