Hello everyone, I really need some advice. There is not an Apple Store here in my city, so yesterday I drove 2 hours to another city with an Apple Store to try on and then buy the link bracelet. I was so excited about getting my dream band. I get it home and start trying to remove the links to resize it and I just wasn't able to remove them after 10-15 mins of pushing the button and pulling as per the directions. I finally got one or two apart, but not the ones I needed to remove! I looked at YouTube videos, tried to find posts from others with this same issue, etc. but still nothing told me I was doing it incorrectly. My thumbs and fingernails are extremely sore after trying for over an hour to resize my dream band. I have three other Apple bands and can change them out very easily, so I feel that I understand how the whole button mechanism works. Do you think I got a dud and just need to drive back 2 hours to exchange it? Has anyone else had this problem? Thanks in advance for any help!
