How do you open the Hero to remove/replace the SD card?

I see the old Hero model has an indentation to pry it open but the Sprint version doesn't have it. It's pretty much impossible to pry it open without doing any damage to it from what I can see if you're not doing correctly....

I've googled how to open it and only see tutorials for the "chin" models

Help?

Slide the back cove up to remove it and then check on the side. It says "MicroSD" right above the card slot. Press the card inward and it will pop out to remove it.

Press about a thumbs length above the HTC branding on the back and while pressing just slide your thumb up.

You also want to unmount the SD card before you remove it.

I turned the phone off and removed it then placed it back in while still off. I just wanted to know how... I didn't unmount. Did I mess it up? <_<

Not sure if that would mess it up. I just saw that there was a setting in the phone to unmount. So I`am sure it`s there for a reason.

Good Luck.

you probably didnt mess anything up but unmount next time. you always run the risk of losing data by just removing it, although its unlikely. Better to be safe then sorry.

No, that's perfectly fine. You just don't want to pop it out with the system on and it mounted.
