Hi Guys,

MTN obviously now support the iPhone...great.
My questions are:

1. Will an iPhone 4 from the USA work in SA if the phone is unlocked?
2. ...and how would I unlock it?

THanks!

Awesome...but no way of knowing whether or not it will unlock the phone? Or does it unlock it irrespective?
I read up that it voids the warranty, but how does this affect running with iTunes and future software upgrades? I would obviously back it up before doing this (assuming I get the iPhone 4).

Thanks for the help! :)

It can be a real challenge to unlock an iPhone and an update will kill it. Try to get a factory unlocked model. You can get them in Canada, Hong Kong, European countries and South Africa.
