How do you take the back cover off of the Motorola Droid Mini?

I need to take the back cover off of my wife's Droid Mini because she dropped it in water. Please help!

There are several videos on the internet that explain how to replace the battery.   Removing the back just takes some patient work with a small thin tool, like a screwdriver. 

I've seen other posts that say you can sometimes fix a phone that got wet by putting it in a bowl of uncooked rice for a few days.  

Hi Jeremy, sorry to hear that about your wife's phone. The thing wit hthe Motorola Droid Mini is that it has a non-removable battery, so the back cover is really sealed shut. The way to remove it would be with the use of special tools, for which you might need to visit a repair center or some kind of mobile phone repair professional. Have you tried looking into those yet?
