How To Replace Cell Phone Battery

Sony Ericsson........model (don't see any ID)....this flips open
I can see 2 little "curved notches".......1 on each side of the part that flips open and if I stick my thumbnail in the notch I can pry open one side of tht cover but it doesn't seem to want to come off further. Google suggest it might want to slide open but I can't seem to get it to do that either and not ready to use brute force yet. Any suggestions?

A hammer.....


OK, for real... I would be surprised if the way to the battery is in the middle of a flip phone... I would look at pics and see what you find...

Once you find the door to the battery... it might be hard to open... my mom had a phone and we had to use brute force... even though nobody did, it seemed like it was glued together....
