Default Sim stuck in the sim tray of my Omate

Hey I put the sim correctly, I can use the sim to call and browse the web (Data - 3G),
but one problem.. I can't get the sim out! It's stuck way inside

Does anyone know how I get it out??

Sim recovered! it seems like the screwdriver that came with the omate is total junk, since it almost destroyed the head of the screws... had to go to a watchmaker to help out taking those screws out.

So, you had to take the back off to get the sim out ?
I hope you replaced the screws with the spares, as they are a little better quality.

Yup, i had to remove the back plate and the underline back plate (disconnect camera, battery...etc) just to get to the sim tray and push out with a small screw drive the sim out...

I'll replace the screws later, had to save the sim first

The screwdriver is a piece of crap. Destroyed itself on the sim screws. I had to use a different one.

The sim installation is not clear, I agree. It is on a push button spring - click it in with a screw driver and it will release, then use tweezers to pull it out
