Right now I'm in the middle of swapping the housing on the Iphone and I'm at the part where I'm supposed to remove the adhesive. I'm using goo gone but I'm still having trouble removing the parts. I already snapped one of the side rails trying to remove it. Can anyone give me suggestions as to how to remove the parts?

Is there a specfic tool I am supposed to be using? I'm using a flat head, but I can't seem to wedge it under the parts to lift it out.

Stupid question, but when you say razor, do you literally mean the razor blade used to shave?

Alright I basically removed everything but the side rails and the sim card portion. I'm having a real hard time with this because I can't get my razor at a good angle.

Wait but one of the rails is part of the volume, vibrator part. Unless I'm confusing the rail for some other part. I'm talking about the 2 pieces that on the side with screwholes at the very end (Part of the 3 screws you remove after taking off the antenna cover)
I have a 2g btw.

Ok now I am getting desperate, I can't seem to get the side pieces/sim card piece out no matter how much I try.(I can't wedge my razor/flat head in) I submerged the case in goo gone for now, I hope it works.
