Default Saving Sim Card from reader!

Basically, my sim card is trapped in my card reader which is internal.... it was placed into the wrong slot by my friend... grrrr....

its wedged in so poking out isnt the answer =[

Thing is i dont know how to get one of the sides off my case...heres the situation:

One side of my case off...


Card reader with only one sides screws un-done because i cant figure out how to take other side of case off...




any1 know how to get the otherside of an Dell XPS case off?

If the case is anything like my Dell Dimension. There is no way to get the other side of the case off. That is a solid piece.

Might just have to take out the card reader instead.

Well you might have to take it to a specialist. Cause Dell cases only have 1 side that comes off.
