Be careful out there. I tried to do this like I had done with every other iPhone I owned, and this battery just happened to be the one that got me. If you hear a hissing sound, or if the battery you are removing breaks from prying it, get away from it! As we speak I am trying to air out my house from all the smoke, I have burns on four fingers, and my neck, and I have to buy a massive new rug for my living room. It was very close to becoming a full-blown fire. So take the OP's advice and heat up the adhesive on the battery before you try to pry it out. and do it in an area where if something goes wrong, you don't risk burning your house down.
