Doing that, I scratched the metal area (the antenna?) that is at the bottom of the phone.

I filed down the length of the catch a little so it releases better.

Same experience here. I tried on the door first because I wanted to see how it fit. Really poor design.

I did not scratch anything (I think) but did have to pry the back up a bit while pushing on the release catch, and then I pulled it out to free it.

You would think for an item like this that probably cost a small fraction of the purchase price that they would do a better job.

The better battery is worth the effort, though....
