Can't remove micro sd card

pAnyone having problems with their micro sd card? I've got an 8gb one in my N97 and can't get the thing out. Can't get a decent grip on it, don't want to force it or I may break it or damage the phone. Tried using the spring thing but it won't flick it out far enough. So it's stuck in there for now. Maybe I'm missing a technic or something.

Anyone else having problems?

I use a Fujitsu 1 GB MicroSD card. It has a t-i-n-y little indentation on the top edge which you are supposed to fit a fingernail in to leverage it out.

I find that it takes a little finesse to coax it out. Forcing just doesn't do it.

Don't forget to use "Remove Memory Card" in the File Manager before taking the card out.

The man in the Nokia shop shoved a long thin pointy knife under it to lever it out of my old phone for the new one! Glad it was him not me!

I had some troubles as well, but the technique that helped me was to push the SD-card in, and quickly remove my finger so the SD-card would bounce further out than it did when I push it and slowly release it.

Try it, worked for me!
