Hahahaha for real? I never knew that could happen!! What happens when you try to take it out? Use a knife or something to pry it out. Can you take a picture of it?

You have the blue battery? I used to have a 8520 and I never knew it would fit the wrong way.

Usually with the blue battery you pull it out from the bottom and it should come out.

I cant see anything to stop sim going in (or coming out) in any direction - upside down or back to front

dont damage your phone - try gripping the sim with some those tiny thin nose pliers - maybe ask a neighbor if they have some

The 8700 battery/SIM configuration are different than the 8520 configuration.
