Turn your phone over. At the bottome of the cover (opposite end to the camera) is an embossed triangle (near the 2 horizontal slits in th case back, pointing towards the top of the case.
Put the phone (back uppermost) into the palm of your hand (either will do). Now, put your thumb of that hand onto the center of the back of the case and push down (gently) and slid the case toward the top of the case.
After about 1/8th of an inch of movement, you will hear a "clisk".
You have just opened the case..
If it is your intention to remove the fromt cover next, ther are 6 tiny phillips- scews areound the perimeter. Before you remove those, seek more advice.
At the back of the phaone at the top you`ll find 2 rubber circles flick them out and there is 2 screws there on the front of the phone at bottom where it say`s contract name ie:vodafone peel that back and there are 2 more screws under there then prize case open
very common fault with cell phones - they don't behave well in water. If it has damaged the phone inside not much can be done in way of fixing but it's worth trying to take it apart and leaving it in an airing cupboard. This means covers battery sim case, take off as much as you can. The more the better. This willl allow as much moisture as possible to dry out. (this may well take a few days though so be paitent) If this doesn't work you make have caused the boards to short out - if this is the case it'll be more expensive to get it repairded physically than buying a new one.
hi is it the outer case of the phone that has the crack or is it actually the lense of camera as often it is the cover over the lense that gets broken as the lense on the camera itself is tiny. If this is the case and it is just the case that needs replacing you can either take it to phone shop and they will replace for a small fee the only problem with doing it yourself is the screws need to be undone in a certain order and the same putting them back getting this wrong can warp the board and destroy the phone. The only sites i have found that shows you how to strip phones down only covers nokias. You could try using ask.com and typing in what you are looking for as sometimes you will come across a site containing the info you need. If the problem is with the camera itself this will require unsoldering and a new camera soldering back onto the board but you problem is probably just the case. They are difficult to take off as once you have undone the screws their are clips holding the case onto the board itself and if you damage these you wont be able to get the phone back together again. Ill have a look now for you and see if their are any sites with instruction on for you and will post back if i find any but try using ask to search for you you might be lucky let me know how you get on ok
I don't know if the problem is already solved but let me drop a solution. You have to remove (pull out) the two round rubber pieces on the upper side of the BACK cover. Now you can see two torx screws (size T6). remove the two screws from the back cover. Now you have carefully to remove the label on the front side (provider label or orgiginal Sony Ericsson Walkman logo). I would use a knife to lift up the label without damaging it. There are two additional screws underneath you have to remove as well. Now you're done. You can remove the front cover from the phone.
