Step 7 seems wrong to me. I almost broke my phone following the instructions.

To remove the antenna, you remove the two black plastic/rubber stoppers by prying them out. Then you have access to the two tabs underneath the stoppers. There are also tabs on the clear housing than hook into the bottom of the tabs on the main casing used to hold the two parts of the case together. I started on one side and gently went across, prying the tabs up.
