Are you friggin' kidding me. Why would Motorola make a major project out of simply removing a battery. Definately needs to be simplified. It'seems like doing friggin' surgery on a phone.

I'd call this battery replacement requirement 'built in obsolescence'! There's no way I'd attempt this. I'd rather buy a new phone. Then again, that's probably why it's so complicated...

How do you repeat the steps in reverse such that you replace the adhesive holding the battery in place? Does a new battery come with the adhesive?
