    Does this mean that SAM can no longer even activate a phone, or just that it can't be used to activate a SIM from another carrier?

    Yes, but not done as SAM as we knew it for activating etc...
    Just the unlock hack with SAM is patched that used a vulnerability with Apples activation ticket server that were tricked into activating and allowing a patched foreign sim to work as any other official carriers sim.

    Apple was quick with this one but as ever let's see if the hackers find a work around !

    Happy days.

    Ok, I unlocked my Australia sim locked iphone 4s (iOS 5.0.1) with SAM and still able to use it right now. What will happen if I connect it to itune? Will the server locked the iphone again or it would be ok to keep connect with itune as long as I don't update the firmware (I lost the original sim card from the operator). Thanks!

    You can sync and connect to iTunes as long as you don't restore.
    Unless you saved your activation ticket then u can restore as much as you want.

    Thanks for the reply. So, is that mean the activation ticket has been saved to itune server and it could be activated again after I restore the iphone? I have already saved the activation ticket by using redsn0w when it was unlocked at once. However, I don't know how to restore the activation ticket anyway. But thanks for your answer!

    Ok you're good then.
    It's not saved on iTunes but probably locally on your drive when you saved it with redsnow.
    There's directions how to reuse that ticket on iclarified.com

    Ok, thanks!

    But I have another question, is the iphone still be network unlockable after cloning the saved activation ticket to the other sim card?

    Nope, only that particular sim with that phone number. No other one.
