    Hi everybody,

    I'm new to Crackberry (big thanks to this incredible site about BB). Santa Claus (Pre Nol in french) brang me a wonderful Z30. The device is incredible. It's my very 1st smartphone. I tested all OS and BB10 was immediatly and by far my favorite. So i took the Z30.
    I red all the remarks (here and in France too) about the cover. I began to open it as Simon suggested too in his special post, i mean by sides. But, it always stayed locked at the bottom. I tried with my nail at the bottom (softly - taking all the precautions) but it didn't worked too. I was quite impressed by some people posting "exploded" back because they pried strongly. Finally i decided to pry with a guitar pick (a soft solution to me to replace a nail). I finally succeded in open it (but not softly, it needs to be done with quite force).
    All is fine, but i'm just a little upset as i noticed i slightly crushed/pushed the edge of the little black mesh recovering the speaker (not the cover one, the device one). Well, it's very tiny. It's about 1 or 2 mm. To me, it's nothing, and the mesh is not tapped.
    I just wanted to know advices of specialists here : it's just a kind of sticker that prevent dust to enter the speakers, isn't it ?
    I mean, it's nothing more (it really seems to be just a sticker) ? No need to be upset for such thing ?
    I really don't think so, but i prefered to ask though.

    Except this little thing, the device IS wonderful !!!

    Thanks from France

    I dunno if it's mesh but the intent is the same, just there to protect it. If it's crushed a bit, good. It did it's job. As long as everything sounds fine and the speaker works, enjoy your device.

    I have had my back cover off many times - it gets easier with practice. I also followed Simon's instructions. Thx Simon.

    The Z30 back can be opened easily if you slide a finger nail in the opening below the volume keys =)

    So yes your nails are the best weapons

    Rather than my fingernails I used the corner of my debit card.

    Finger nail - working both directions - works for me.

    Incidentally my Z30 forgot it had SIM card in it last night - for some reason. Had to remove the rear cover, push in and eject the SIM card - then turn on the unit. Good as new

    I always started at bottom. I'll try from there next time..... if ever needs be open again. lol

    Exit: one of my screens got pushed in too. Still works fine. So I wouldn't worry about it.

    This is a weird topic lol
    The backdoor has an opening at the bottomp so you can take it off from there, then you're supposed to slide you're nails around the left side (the side that has the volume bottoms), since the right side gets stuck with the USB and hdmi port

    Great tip to use a card, I was using a Biro lid.

    BlackBerry have made it too difficult to open the rear cover and too easy to press the side buttons. It needs to be evened out a bit.
