    I purchased a blue plastic opening tool(AKA: Spudge) like the one used in the above Step 1 rear cover pic and found the divot and was able to take off the rear cover as per the “Step 2 “ instructions.

    • Use the flat end of a spudger, or your fingernail, to press the microSD card slightly deeper into its slot until you hear a click.

    • After the click, release the card and it will pop out of its slot.

    • Remove the microSD card.

    • For reassembly, push the microSD card into the slot until it clicks in place.

    I was able to remove the MicroSD Card as per the Step 3 MicroSD instructions with no problems.

    • Remove the battery from your phone.

  5. Replacing Samsung Galaxy S4 SIM Card, SIM Card: step 5, image 1 of 3 Replacing Samsung Galaxy S4 SIM Card, SIM Card: step 5, image 2 of 3 Replacing Samsung Galaxy S4 SIM Card, SIM Card: step 5, image 3 of 3
    • Use a plastic opening tool, or your fingernail, to press the SIM card slightly deeper into its slot until you hear a click.

    • After the click, release the card and it will pop out of its slot.

    • Remove the SIM card.

    • During reassembly, push the SIM card into the slot until it clicks in place.

    Looks easy but doesn't work. No one has a plastic opening tool. Using fingernail, you can press SIM card into slot but it does not pop out so you can remove it.

    I agree with the comment above

    I also don't have a plastic tool and my finger nail won't pop the card out.
