    Yea, I've tried to pull on it but the battery on mine doesn't wanna budge. Anyone wanna explain how to take it out? lol. I am afraid of ripping the thing right off.

    I had the same fear; I gave it a firm tug though and the battery came out and the tab didn't pull off.

    Don't pull to the sides. Pull up at an angle towards you.

    Yea, saw the video before and still couldn't manage. It would just pop up about a mm and not move anymore. Just grabbed it with a dish cloth and yanked it hard toward me and it flew right out lol. Kinda warped the tab a little but nothing too bad.

    i ripped mine right off. it tore about an inch away from the ESN info. i just wrapped a piece of strong clear packing tape very thin at top of battery and gonna use that, otherwise it was a ***** getting it out without the tab. I felt like an ***** but i guess its pretty common.

    Lol, even says dont cut you guys. I guess this is why there are warnings to not drink battery acid, etc.

    Don't worry about it breaking off.

    When I first seen Pull <~ I pulled, and realized it wasn't supposed to come up that far. Once I put my battery back in, it doesn't even move. Your not going to break it, I can almost guarantee that!

    mine didnt even come with one!!...i watched the video first then i open my battery cover and there's no yellow tab anywhere. I had to use a credit card to pop it out which was a real ***** to do while simultaneously being gentle. I guess mine slipped through QA without one.
