    I have recently discovered that MTN has locked their iphones. Dont ask questions. I then took it to someone to have jailbroken. Now it works with my Vodacom sim. BTW I was told MTN had locked their iphones. Allthough illegal, and not commonly known, and apparantly the only phone to have been network locked. Anyhow my iphone is now functioning on Vodacom after I had tested 2 mini sims, and thought they were stuffed.

    You should ask them to unlock it on their side, so the unlock is permanent, even with OS upgrades and stuff. In fact, I didn't even know it was possible to unlock an iPhone 4 on OS 5.1.1, via the jailbreak method. How did he do that?

    Yes, it was sim swap.
    I'll contact MTN again to unlock my phone.
