This worked for me very quickly, too. I used a guitar pick instead of a knife though which might be a little friendlier to the materials.
It might actually be better for the phone to carefully loosen the screen with a pick before moving back and forth (as described by @Hamm325) . This way contacts aren’t stressed as much. What do you think?
Hi guys. i got a new fairphone 2 because of some troubles with the first one. so my problem. ow is that i can’t open the phone. the display won’t letit slide off. i opened the first fp2 easily. but this one’s tough. is there a special trick? the small description of fairphone just says to push and then let it slide.this is not really working. can somebody help? it reeaaaally annoys me. i was trying for half an hour…nothing.
While I don’t need to replace the screen or any other components yet, I’m a bit surprised that I can’t actually slide the display off to get at the components.
I feel like a bit of a plank trying to force the phone apart after unlocking with the blue switches, but has anyone else had this issue with not being able to release the screen?
Am I just being an idiot?

I pushed and pulled, massaged and tried to loosen, but nothing got me any further. I then pushed a guitar pick (got the idea from here and here and to me it seemed more gentle than a knife) into the crack you mentioned and “rolled” it (worked better than sliding) along the sides of the phone (by rotating it parallel to the phone’s screen, i.e. in the plane of the phone) from top left to bottom left and from top right to bottom right edge. Needed a bit pressure and slow rotation to avoid the pick jumping out (several attempts).[/quote]
Hello everyone! I just recieved my fairphone but I have some issues with the Camera.
At the support they told me to try to take off the display and put it back.
However, I can’t take it off!! I tried as strong as I could, but it doesn’t moove at all, not even a millimitre.
Can someone give me some support? maybe you had the same problem and you menaged to open it some how?
