The easiest way to take your Samsung Galaxy S3's SIM card is to push with your fingernail toward the battery compartment. This will slide the SIM card out enough so that you can grab its sides and pull it out the rest of the way. You can also use tools like small screwdrivers, nail clippers, or tweezers to aid in pulling the card out of its slot. If you are unable to pull the card out of its slot even when using tools, you may need to go to your carrier's nearest store and see if the slot that holds your Samsung Galaxy S3's SIM card was damaged. There's a possibility that the metal strap that secures the SIM card was bent, which would prevent you from being able to slide the card out.
