To remove a silicone or rubber case you need to pry one of the corners of the case, and then take the phone out. Follow these steps:

1. It is better to take a cover from a phone above the table. If the phone slips out, it will fall on the table. For added safety, lay a soft towel over it.

An impact shell is typically made of several materials: plastic, rubber, or silicone. Because of this, a shock-proof case is not as flexible as a silicone or rubber-only case. You will need to use more force to remove the cover. Follow these steps:

  1. Lay a soft towel on the table.
  2. Remove the hinged parts of the cover, if any.
  3. Place the phone on the towel, or hold it with one hand and try to lift the cover with the other.

  5. When you get the corner of the phone free, pull the cover to the side and pull the phone out.
