    Hello,

    I just bought an OEM replacement faceplate for my T610, and I'm having
    problems getting the original antenna cover off of the phone. I'm
    working with the instructions on howardsforums.com and also on
    uselessinfo.co.uk, but the cover doesn't want to budge. I tried lifting
    the edge of the cover with picture hanger, per the HF recommendation, as
    well as a jeweler's flathead screwdriver and the clip from a BIC pen
    cover (which someone on HF also recommended).

    I bought the phone from T-Mobile less than a month ago - has SE modified
    the design at all to make the cover more difficult to remove?

    Anyone have any other suggestions, or can someone point me to anywhere
    in the Washington DC area that will change the faceplate for me if I
    can't figure out how to do it myself?

    Here are the URLs I'm working from:

    You really need to release both of the clips at the base of the aerial cover
    at the same time, whilst applying pressure to slide the cover up towards the
    top of the phone - fiddly, but it does work. Take another look at the
    dismantle on my site for the location of the securing clips, and try
    releasing them both.

    Not as far as I know, every one I've seen is exactly the same to dismantle,
    but the aerial cover can be stiff, and is the most awkward part of the whole
    dismantle.
