All the little tabs and latches appear to be intact but recently, when the phone is open, the top of the "camera" depresses the cover release button. I can't figure out why. No trauma, no dropping or anything.

Back cover is obviously very easy. Front cover has 4 clips one each side
at top and bottom, just need to gently pull the casing away from the
body in each corner until the clips pop out. The piece over the camera
at the back is a little more tricky, it's got two clips, one each side
at the bottom, check your back shutter it connected with a camera switch. Remove the back of your phone & then set it again.
Remove the battery and set it on a table so the camera eye is at the top left. There is 6 little star (torque bit) bolts. I used a small flat head for eye glasses and you take out the top 2 screws on the left and bottom 2 screws on the left only. Slide open the screen and there is 2 black stickers covering 2 hidden screws, unscrew them and 2 more that will release the front cover. from there the screen it pop out with a flat head and also use it to pop out the electrical
There are 6 latches all in all. 2 in the bottom part, 2 about 1/4 for
the top (in line with the top of your screen) then 2 in the top part.
First remove the bottom 2 latches. I would suggest to use a jeweller's
flat head screw driver or similar. Then slide the screw driver up one
side to the latch that is about 1/4 from the top - it is in line with
the top of your screen, this latch should pop off. The cover is fairly
strong but do be be a little careful about breaking it.
Then the other do the same on the other side, after that every thing
else is easy, pull the front cover carefully from the middle latches
then slide the cover upward. If you do all this carefully then you will have successfully removed the front cover.vote me if this works.thanks!
The Intensity has a slot for a MicroSD card -- is that the kind of removable memory you bought? (Anything bigger won't fit.)
Turn your phone off, and then pry off the back cover by using the little slot at the top of the phone (near the camera). There's a little groove where you can slip your finger in and pop the back cover off.
When the cover is off and you're looking at the phone's battery, the MicroSD slot is to the left, just above the camera button on the side of the phone. Stick the memory card in the slot (it should only fit in one way) and then reattach the back cover and turn the phone on.
Ok..#1.take the battery out.. then youll have to remove the 2 screws that hold the modem part of the phone in.gently pryup on the modem ,on the side with out the usb charger port..slip a thin flat tipp screw driver in there and slide it towards the bottom of the phone. there are littler plastic clips carefull not to break them.then youll see where the bottom of the flex cable plugs in.unplug it.then flip the phone over,in the 4 cornors of the screen side of the flip there are tiny little rubber plugs. pop them out and undo the screws in there.near the top of the screen there is a little slot on the right side of the screen ..gently pop the cover off the screen..unplug the flex cable from the screen.and carefully remove the screen.be careful not to damage the buttons on the sides of the screen.then close the flip and turn the phone over..looking into the battery part of the phone,on the top right hand side of the hindge there is another little screw,remove that.then again turn the phone over and stick a flat tip screw driver into the open hole and pop the chrome roller out.then very carefully youll be able to seperate the 2 halfs. look on the back side of the keyboard youll see little metal tabs folded over that holds the key board in place..the keyboard and the flex cable are one piece, just revers the procedure to replace.."

Hi,the problem you are experiencing with your phone is as a result of a weak flex connector cable.it has to be replaced,here's a detailed solution on how to replace the cable.
Tools required: Phillips screwdriver, plastic tool such as a guitar plectrum or credit card.
Remove your back cover, battery, sim and memory card.
Run something like a credit card under the metal plate at the top of the phone. It is stuck down tight with double sided tape but it will come away with a little force.
Starting near the top of the phone, run your credit card along the join of the front cover. When you have released the cover as much as shown below, slide the cover down to remove it (clips hold the cover on at the bottom which will be bent if you don't slide the cover off).
You should now have the front cover removed. Remove the small screw you can see.
With the slide open halfway, lift the up the part you've just removed the screw from to reveal three ribbon connectors. Each connector has a black latch which you need to flick over the release the ribbon
You now have the LCD screen removed. You don't need to go any further if you only want to replace the LCD.
Remove the speaker and connecting ribbon etc. It's just stuck down lightly. Remove the two screws you can see at the top of the phone.
You now need to lift the keypad up. It's stuck down lightly with double sided tape. Remove the two screws you can see.
Run your credit card around the join of the grey part of the phone to release a number of clips. Turn the phone over and release a few more clips in the battery compartment.
Your phone should now look like below. Two small bezels (shown in the picture) will pop off when you remove the back part of the phone. Now remove the two silver screws you can see.
You can now remove the battery compartment. A ribbon is stuck to the side of this and will peel away quite easily. Remove the two screws you can see.
The circuit board will now be loose but still connected by a ribbon. Again, flick the black latch over to release the ribbon.
Disassembly is complete. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.
Water + Phone = BAD !
Your phone is most likely damaged beyond repair if its been out for a swim.
It sounds like its got some corrosion inside, when its turning off by itself.
Most water-hazards is to costly to repair in comparison to getting a new phone, so your phone might work for now, but it wont get any better with time.
The switch on the back-cover can be repaired with som super-glue and a little handy-work.
Allthough if its the switch on the phone itself you've got a problem, since its soldered in.
Then you need to take the phone in for repairs by a pro.
