How to remove the battery cover on the HTC Hero

I struggled with the instructions, push with thumb just was not cutting it. This might be a little tough to pop the first few times.

What I had to do was this;

  • Place phone in face down in the palm of your left hand with the USB jack pointing towards you.
  • Place your right palm on the back side of the phone just above the USB jack.
  • Press your hands together and try to push the back away from the USB jack.

The first time it popped off with almost a click feel. Seems like it will get easier over time as well, once you know how to actually get the damn thing off.

  1. These are great instructions. I’ve struggled so much trying to open this back cover.

  3. I didn’t work… yet if you accidentally drop it on the carpet the back flies off!
    I hate this phone… 

  4. I’ve got strong dry hands and I still can’t get the cover off using your clearly correct instructions. Waiting for sons to get home to try it. One way or another, Hero will not beat me. Its little things like this that is slowly turning me off Chinese made products. They know there is a problem, but won’t fix it.

  5. Very helpful advice, I was about to bust the back cover off while trying to “Remove the cover by pushing it upward with your thumb.” as the instructions stated.

  6. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! I couldn’t get it off the way the htc people say to do it…your way worked first time!!! 🙂

  7. omg…wow thanks so much! i struggled with the “push with your thumb” method for over an hour. ur method worked on the first try!! contact htc and tell them plz lol.

  8. This may be a smart phone but I couldn’t figure it out. I had to get my son to get on here and find you for my help. Much thanks. It seems so easy now that I have done it. Thank you again!
