4S - SIM tray comes out with no SIM card

Just took my SIM tray out to grab the SIM card and prepare my iPhone 4S to be sold. The tray came out fine but the SIM card wasn't in the tray! I guess it's stuck inside the phone somehow...

Is there a way to get the card out?

Are you using verizon?
You're sure its stuck inside?
Bring it to Apple or a repair place to open it up and get it out.

Yes, it's on Verizon. I'd be happy to take it to the Apple store provided they don't try to charge me anything. My only guess to do it myself would be to use tweezers, but that's risky.

Maybe it never had a sim inside
The verizon 4S doesnt need the sim inside, its only used if you roam outside the US to other networks.

Verizon sometimes does not put on in the 4s. I just took mine out and it is a blank sim card in mine just for the place holder. There is 100% no way for it to "get stuck" inside. When you insert the card holder back into the phone, it is in a cage that does not let it move. It is crunched between the metal frame of the phone, and the mother board.
