    I too have the same problem but it works in my white one but not my black one and tried the results above, pushing harde and using a knife but nothing works, Could it be a manufacturer defect? Any one else have the same problem too and had to bring it in fro service. I seems that the spring is not working.

Where is the sim card in my sph-m500 phone?

I might be wrong, but, as far as I know, the SPH-M500 is a CDMA phone, and, as such, it lacks a SIM card. To either confirm or deny my point, please, download its user guide from this location.

How do I remove my phone number from a Samsung SPH-M500 phone?

When the new person takes over the phone, they put their new sim card in which contains the new phone number. That will then change any phone number currently in the device.
