    Ok... little surprised but to remove the battery on the Bionic, you need a tool like a screwdriver to pop it out. That really sucks. If you want to do a quick battery pull in the car or in a situation when you are not near a screwdriver, you cannot.

    Really Motorola?

    There is a no tool icon right there on the battery. You can get it out without a tool. I did and I'm a chick, put some muscle into it. It might help that I have slightly longer nails than most guys. definitely not as easy to get out as the og Droid.

    It's not about having muscles! I'm not a chick with nails either.

    If anybody comes up with any tricks (other than getting Lee Press-on nails), let me know.

    I am not a chick and I actual cut my finger nails yesterday. I tried again just now and was able to get mine out just with my fingers. It is a little bit hard but if you get your finger under the battery by the SD card you can pull it out.

    it's entirely too hard to pull the cover off. plus because it's plastic and the start point is near the opening for the camera there is a very good chance that sooner or later that plastic cover will snap under the pressure. Worst battery case design I've ever seen. On the bright side I think everyone is assuming they will be yanking the battery a lot like with the older droids................here's to hoping that daily opening is a thing of the past!

    I totally agree. this phone is sweet but the case and battery design suck balls. i bought the extra battery and battery charger because I am a heavy phone user. so I am quite annoyed about the process to take this thing apart to put in the spare battery. on a side note, to answer the op's question, in my experience after you have taken the battery out a few times it gets easier.

    Yup it sucks I agree... no nails and chubby fingers will make battery swaps quite an event... looks like ill be jamming a key or something to pry it open.. the case doesn't look very flush at the top but its on tight.. they should've taken the battery design from the dx so we can pull the battery super easy

    I tried to get the battery off for 15 minutes until a verizon rep told me to use a quarter. It popped right out with the quarter.

    I had a very hard time getting the case off. Then I was astounded how it was impossible to get the battery out. I used a key...

    I'm a dude and bite the hell out of my nails and I had no problems getting it out without using anything. Hell, use a key or something. THINK!:p
