    SIM...card...? The one that goes in phones? Half the size of the SD slot? I hope you're joking. Dude, I'm not trying to make you feel bad, not even trying to make fun of you (because you're getting enough of both by this point), but I'm very curious as to why you think it'd work? (probably be better for PM since it'd probably result in more smartass comments) I heard of a micro SD card falling in, and now this?

    Anyway, I'd say your best bet is to call Nintendo for some support and maybe, if you're lucky, they'll provide a way for you to get it out (either have some sort of procedure for this sort of thing or send it back and they'll dissassemble it for you to retrieve the card).

    If you're feeling even luckier you can try shaking/air-canning that thing out of there, but I took a look at the SD card slot and the holes look too fine of a fit to manage to get something as small as a micro SD card or a SIM card out of that console. If you can live without the card, work around it, because it's not as if it's really going to damage the system. Otherwise, as suggested, just call nintendo.

    If you google something like 'Taking the wii apart' you should find some sites where people have... well.... taken the wii apart. Either study the pictures to see where the sd card slot opens up to or send a very nice, polite email to the people who took their wiis apart asking for advice.
    He could result to that if Nintendo doesn't help him, but it's best as a last resort. May wanna hold onto that warranty if there's another way around it. Then again, is there even a VOID sticker or device anywhere in the console?

    don't be a douche, he knows he made a mistake, we've all done things like this, like when I tried to put toast with cheese in my toaster.

    anyway, I"m sure you haven't ****ed up your wii, but obviously you want the SD card out. There is a YouTube video:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kihXP9WYhLc&eurl

    that shows someone dismantling the wii. It doesn't look too difficult, unlike a X360, PS3 or iBook, but I"m not sure what the warrently situation is. If you're careful, you may be able to do it without anyone being able to tell, but that would be difficult. it depends where the sim card is I guess, and how much you have to take apart to get to it. You may find once you take the first plate off you can get it out, but maybe not.

    is it inside the SD slot, or is it rattling around in the wii casing itself?

    sorry i'm not being very helpful.


    EDIT: just having a look at my wii to see where it could have gone. so, has it slipped between the front face of the wii and black "inner" casing? if so, removing just the front face may be enough, which shouldn't be tooooo difficut, though easier said than done I"m sure,.

    Your a dumb@ss. . .but the easiest way to get the sim card back would just be to take out the few screws that are necessary to open the Wii, similar to opening a PC case; shouldn't have to undo anything else.

    If the Xbox 360 console falls and hits someone, especially a small child, it could cause serious injury.

    Nice find on the video. I'm appauled at the people sputtering constant profanities in the comments section that they took it apart....it's not like they broke the console.

    But back on topic, by the looks of it you probably could get away with just taking off that front faceplate and lightly shaking the console to get the SIM card to drop out.

    Ok it is funny but you people dont have to be so rude or ignorant about it. You cant tell me you didnt do something stupid.

    P.S: I know how you must've felt when it fell in.
