    Please contact MTN about the SIM lock and unlock. In general it is permanent unless the carrier offers an unlock code.

  • thanks

  • oh wait - on the back it says the primary sim slot is mtn locked for 1 year , the 2ndry sim slot can only be used if a mtn sim is in primary slot


    do you think that means i can use vodacom in sim 2 ?

    Yes, as long as you continue paying MTN. I mean if this is a finance phone and the payment to it is a part of your phone's payment plan, then it should get locked down if you don't continue with your MTN plan.

    However if you have made a full payment and the phone is not locked to a finance plan, then you can use it even without paying for MTN.

  • thanks


    so i have a Vodacom pre paid sim and now i bought a pre paid MTN sim and i loaded R5 , i will never use the MTN sim so is that ok just to leave R5 on it ?


    next year march the MTN lock is cancelled
