Are you friggin' kidding me. Why would Motorola make a major project out of simply removing a battery. Definately needs to be simplified. It'seems like doing friggin' surgery on a phone.

How do you repeat the steps in reverse such that you replace the adhesive holding the battery in place? Does a new battery come with the adhesive?
