Can't open SIM card tray on Thinkpad T460s



I have a brand new thinkpad t460s and I have tried to use a paper clip as the manual says to open the SIM card tray but I can't get it out.

I can feel that I'm hitting something but the SIM card tray don't get out.

Any tips?

How hard are you pressing? Sometimes it needs a good push to pop open.

Also are you sure you're using a thin enough paper clip? Sometimes it will be thin enough to fit in the hole, but not thin enough to go all the way through.


I'm pushing hard, I don't want to push harder. If I'll do it harder I'll broke it.
