    Thanks

    I was also running into the same issue... the best way I found to do it (still not that easy, but also not very hard) was to on the left side of the phone (on the opposite side of the volume buttons) it should be fairly easy to pop the bottom corner out, then (with the bottom corner still out) try and do same to corner above (top), then you should be able to work your way through it. Hope this helps!

    Very easy way. Use bottom of case. place both index fingers on bottom corners. Both thumbs on back about 1/3rd down backside. Use thumbs to push back of case, while holding on to corners of case. Phone will pop out with ease.

    Yep, I second that. The bottom left of the case is the best place to start.

    Having changed 3 cases till i settled on the colour i want :) i found that starting from the bottom where the headphone jack is and then Working the case of the phone from there is the way to go :)

    I start in the bottom corner, screen facing away and easily push out the phone in 1 corner, then the next corner bit by bit until your phone easily pops out. :)

    EDIT: Also anyone noticing the case collects and traps bits of dust between it and the metal band around the phone? Worry this will cause scratches..
