Yep, it's tight, but secure!

Lift up from that bottom lip with your finger nail.

Re: Bold 9900 REMOVE BACK (to get to battery)

Oh, I know it's tight, but it does work.

Do you have a friend with tougher nails?

 

I wouldn't recommend anything like using some metal like a letter opener, but of course you could try that although I certainly won't recommend it.
