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.

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 actually posted this a few days ago.

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 idiot but i guess its pretty common. :D

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.

I know I shouldn't laugh, but the way you worded that made me laugh out loud for real :p
