Did they advertise it as dual sim? because I highly doubt it MTN and Vodacom don't supply dual sim phones.
I asked Vodacom and they stated (categorically) that they don't supply or support dual SIM handsets

Vodacom and MTN don't. They block the second sim port. Telkom allows this. Not sure about cell C
They don’t necessarily block the second sim slot, Huawei produce both dual and single sim versions of most of their phones.

It's just a software thing you can change a single SIM to a dual sim

Not if it’s a manufactured single sim model. As I say, Huawei now manufacture most models as single sim only version as well, the model number is usually different and the second sim hardware is completely missing. For example with the P20 Pro CLT-L09 is single sim and CLT-L29 is dual sim.

Well whether it's by software or physically blocking the port, you cannot use a second sim on their network on a phone that has the capabilities. I had this issue a few months back. Wife wanted a dual sim since she has a company sim. Eventually had to get a Telkom contract to take advantage of this.

Totally agree with you there.
