    Here's a tip that I learned from my days in owning the D3. To remove the back cover of the S4, instead of destroying your fingernails, use a credit card. Put the edge of the CC in the notch where the manual says to use your fingernail. Slip it in then slide it all the way around the phone. The back cover will come off rather easily.

    Or buy a spudger.

    Lol I just had to bring up the option since they gave that tool such a funny name. It's very handy though.

    I got mine from Amazon.

    Wow, the "spudger" is $7 on Amazon. The CC method is free. ;) Anyway, whateve works, but the fingernail method is the worst method it seems. After destroying my fingernails on the D3('s back cover), I figured there has to be a better way. Rinse and repeat on the S4. :)
