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. Thank you thank you! I’ve searched everywhere to see how to do this and NO one had this explanation with a simple pic. Thanks again!

  2. My fiance used to work for Sprint, and every time he would “show” me how to open it with his weird little finger voodoo magic that got the cover off, it would look so easy, but I could never do it. He is not here today and I was getting so mad I was about ready to throw it across the room, etc. but you saved me from breaking my phone!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
