Yikes, that sucks.... I assume it's pushed in and "locked" into place, so you'll need something to both push it in, to unlock it, and then pull it out...
My only thought is a something like taking a paperclip, straightening it out, putting a tiny tiny dab of like chewing gum on the end... and then pushing it in, and pulling out - hopefully the gum is both sticky enough to hold the card, but also won't adhere to anything inside the phone.
After thinking about it for a minute, I think I'd try this first:
Take just the straight paperclip, hold the phone "vertical" so that the SD card opens to the ground, use the clip to push in.. and hope that gravity will cause it to fall out. If that didn't work, then I'd try it with something sticky on the end, like gum.
OR... go to your local phone store.. I'm sure this isn't all that uncommon. Those folks may know a better solution.
Note: a paperclip may be too thick, but I'm sure you get the idea.. something skinny/strong/straight to try and manipulate the card that's stuck inside.
