    My phone is having an extremely tough time sliding up and nothing was done to it ( that i know of) but i have to use a good amount of force to push it open.

    any advice how to fix it ?

    open ur battery cover, remove the battery. and watch as you slide the phone open and see if there is anything visible that could be causing the extra force needed.

    don't do the wd-40. Its gonna gunk it up and you will constantly have to clean it and use more of it. I'd go in there with a q tip with a dab of alcohol and see if you can clean the tracks a little

    It is very hard to slide my phone up by placing my thumbs on the gesture area. If that's what you do, try placing your thumb in the middle of the screen or one thumb on each side of the screen and then sliding up.

    Mine is hard to slide open too.

    I've toyed with the idea of using some cycle Dry Lube, just have not got around to it yet.
    Thought of the day :
    No sense being pessimistic, it probably wouldn't work anyway

    100% right, I cant even open mine if i try and push from the gesture area but move the thumb up another 1/2inch and it glides open.
