My phone stuck it it's cell case and I cant get it out. What do I do??
LOL what phone is it? Try at one corner then work your way around :beer:
its the stellar. You cant even get into the corner.
Can you post a pic of the phone in said case? Or are you like 90% and only have the one camera on your phone?
Im part of that 90%
Mirror pic :thumbup:
like a case you bought for it?
cut it off.
LOL!! OMG!! Try This, Power down the phone, turn it OFF. Heat causes expansion. Wait a while , maybe put it in the fridge for a few, while it is powered OFF. Then try.
LMAO i was trying to not laugh and then a MODERATOR makes it more funny!!!
Sorry Tiffany but it is pretty funny to sad nerds like us. is it a one-piece case?
And anyway LilBit, if it cools down, the case will also shrink... we need to know what the phone body material is AND what the case is made of
Tiffany, were not laughing AT you!!! We will help you get this problem solved. K? It will be funny to you later though. Try my cool down method,
DONT try LilBits semi-logikal crap lol have you ever taken it off before?
I recently got an excellent UAG case and part of what i love about it is it fits so tight. My technique is to start at a bottom corner (opposite end from where the battery cover comes off.
It all depends what typa case it is though. If its a two piece one, take the outer part off first :beer:
Hi Tiffany, which cell phone do you have, getting the right section of the forums may help, I can move this for you if you like
Let us know whats happening, when you can. My method is Logical though.
If you choose to place it in the fridge, don't leave it in there for long - or you run the risk of condensation. One trick is to place it in a sealed plastic bag before you place it in there. But, either way, leave it in there for no more than an hour or so.
Id love to photoshop that so spock has a stuck phone in his hand
But.... i duno how
I don't see anything in the thread describing the type of case. If it's a silicone style of tight case, then it can be worked out gradually by massaging along the sides, back and front.. take your time, it'll come partially out after a while of doing that.
If it's a hard two piece you can push through the camera orifice until it pops out, carefully and slowly, but steadily (you don't want to damage the lens). Use a soft cloth on your finger or thumb, or a soft clean glove.
Definately push through the orifice :thumbup:
Hope you get it off. But, until then.....:hahaha::hahaha::hahaha:, too funny.
I'm not advocating the use of sharp objects, but I would think that in many instances, just knicking a corner would allow you to remove the whole case.
Honestly, if we could get a pic or just the name of the case - we would have 3-4 great suggestions, 4-5 good suggestions and, below those, one from funky.
Lmao. Below that, LilBit suggesting you fry it!
And be careful with sharp objects near the orifice!
On the same idea as sticking it in the fridge (I'd use the freezer, actually), you could also try gently warming it with a hair dryer. Differing rates of expansion among different materials respond differently, making it hard to guess whether cooling or heating will do the trick, so it could go either way. Also, heating can make materials (like the case) softer and make adhesives (even inadvertent ones like a dried drink spill) release their grip. Be careful not to damage anything!
Another option, if you get desperate, would be to shave/carve the case off gradually with a sharp razor knife or file/sand it off.
I definately condone the heating more than the freezing so the heat can be directed at the case itself but i think carving it off would be far more therapeutic. I remember bad girls painted my nails and since i didnt know about nail varnish remover and bleach failed.. i spent some wonderful hours scraping it off with a carpet knife.. ahh nostalgia.
Do you have a dog? A dog would probably be glad to help! :thumbup:
This dog's good to go. And is pre-equipped with google glass
Maaan even dogs get to be explorers and stupid google give me nuttin
If it's like an Otter Box it is a two-piece snap-together clamshell and is a royal pain to take apart if one needs to clean the screen later on
Grab some soap,and lube it up!
