    • Using your fingernail, push the SIM card slightly deeper into its slot, until you hear a click.

    • After the click, release the card and it will pop out of its slot.

    • For reassembly, push the SIM card into the slot until it clicks in place.

    Forgot about the step to remove the back casing...pretty simple though, just several screws then pop it off.

    • Remove the ten 4.0 mm Phillips screws securing the midframe to the front panel assembly.

    What would you use to remove the screws

    I used both P#000 and J#00 precision bits to good effect. I tend to prefer the Japanese Standard bits in place of Philips, as the JIS bits seem not to cam out and strip screws as easily.

    • Grasp the left side of the plastic midframe with your thumb and forefinger and lift it away from the phone.

    • The midframe lightly snaps in place, and can be removed with very little force.

    There's another piece of the frame that needs to be taken out, but it doens't come out as nicely... unless I did something wrong. It's the part that covers the speaker. I couldn't find a nice way of taking it out.

    I had to use a guitar-pick to pry that section off of the frame. Start at the front-facing camera edge and run the pick underneath the plastic cover. The catches should release.

    I used a pointed prying too to get it started, then the flat one. It took some fiddling but finally came off nicely.

    READ ME!

    For a guide that takes you step by step on how to remove the SIM and microSD, I'm surprised they didn't mention the top part of this midframe (still attached, in the pictures). This top part of the midframe also needs to be removed before you can take out the motherboard.

    You need to disconnect a ribbon not listed in these directions first, then pry that midframe up with the help of a guitar pick. This ribbon is located by the back-camera, next to the digitizer ribbon. This ribbon is connected to the midframe so it is essential you disconnect this before lifting the frame up.

    The frame is really snapped in there so don't be afraid to use a little force - for reference, you will use more force to pull this frame off than you did to pull off the back-cover of the phone. Once this piece is off, your phone should look like the picture in step 14.
