First, get a proper screwdriver, not like the toy I received.
Also, it's hard to get a good grip without turning on the device. I Launched 2 factory mode trying to remove the sim cover.

I find shaking it works pretty good for getting it out. Just make sure you don't loose it

Also make sure you replace the sim cover the right way, its not symmetric.
