    I just purchased a screwdriver so that I can remove the back plate to see if I can fix the sunken down power button.

    I was curious when I saw the battery, so I did a search for the steps to remove the battery in case I need to do it in the future.

    Every article that I've read stated that there are two screws to be removed. However, mine doesn't have any screws at all!

    1. This is the first time I've removed the back plate.
    2. This phone was purchased from a major local telco about 18 months ago.
    3. It is not a refurbished set; the phone was never sent to the telco for replacement.
    4. The phone was not sent to any third party services for repairment.

    Here's an image to explain what I'm talking about:

    Here's an image of where the screws were supposed to be:

    What's going on?

    If its the concerning, you can buy a screw set from eBay and replace them. The back plate should push down on the battery connections enough to keep it down, but for safety buy the $2 screw sets from eBay

    Your phone was made on Monday and the guy that makes 25¢ a hour putting them together was still hung over from the weekend. :D

    Looks like either human error, or someone on the assembly line got lazy lol

    Here's a set I bought a while ago. Shipped from the US and took around 5 days to get from California to Pennsylvania. Only $3.69 http://bit.ly/13jySKp
