    *edit* Just practiced several times on my broken D3.

    Its VERY easy. Instead of pulling it by the top part, slide your finger from the top middle of the phone, to the top right, and then down the right side until you get near the charging port.

    After that, it will just pull right off.

    It is a little tough getting off sometimes but I don't find it hard. I just use a finger nail and pry at the top then go around the side a little bit and it pops off pretty easy. I'd rather have it like this than have it coming off too easily and like a lot of others mine hardly comes off anyways.

    I don't have nails due to schizophrenia causing me to bite them off (I know it's sad, but it's true) so I have to have a tool to get my back cover off. Luckily for me, I always keep coins in my back pocket.

    Mine was hard when I first got it. I hated it. But now it's really easy to do.

    For people without nails, you can use a tool for opening electronic equipment like this:

    they cost pennies and can be found anywhere. Or a simple guitar pick would do too. There is little risk to scratch the plastic unlike if metal object is used.

    great suggestion with regards to guitar pick.

    and I thought the battery cover for the D1 was great. I do like it better than the one for my D3. But it's not all that bad. Just tryin to minimize the number of times it gets taken off.
