Hi Bee Ring! If you’re not having any luck shaking the phone to get it out, try inserting a piece of tape in to the slot, double-sided if possible, to try to grab the card, you can also try long thin tweezers. You might also take it down to your provider and see if they have any tricks. If it’s absolutely not coming out, you may need to open the phone, you can follow this SIM eject lever guide, you should need to remove the screen, just open it and look at step 21. You can try to push the SIM card out of the slot with a toothpick, you may need to remove that eject lever. Best of luck!
