Since this is for iOS, which comes from MacOS X, which includes various FreeBSD and NetBSD bits, it would be a container-based solution like jails (which pre-date the Linux-based solutions like OpenVZ, Linux-VServer, LXC, etc). ;)

Try explaining to someone that you jailbroke your iPhone in order to run a jail, to keep your business line separate from your personal line. ;)

Would you need dual-SIM support in the phone, or does the VM create a virtual-SIM?
