By Jon Stefansson
Motorola is an American brand of cellphones and electronics based in Schaumburg, Illinois. The company manufactures an entire range of cellphones, 2-way radios and other electronics for the consumer market. Motorola cellphones are widely available worldwide. Opening your Motorola cellphone--for such tasks as gaining access to the battery compartment or the Service Identity Module (SIM) card--is uncomplicated. The exact method used to open your Motorola cellphone varies by model.
Switch off your Motorola phone and disconnect the charger if it is attached.
Turn the phone over so the back of the phone is facing up.
Look for a small plastic button on the battery compartment door.
Hold the button down and slide the cover up or down, depending on your model of phone. The battery cover will detach.
Lift it off the phone and set it aside. Your Motorola cellphone is now open.
Slide a fingernail beneath an edge of the battery. Lift the battery up and out of the phone to access the SIM card.
