I've purchased many phones on straighttalk.com, yes they are reconditioned but I've never had a problem before!!
I got my R451C through fedex the other day, so excited because i've been without a phone and now im filled with anger frustration and hopelessness!! HONESTLY! I called straight talk, gave them my phone's serial number/service card pin# and my zip code and the phone number and seria were successfully activated, now.. after activating those through a 1877 number, they tell you to dial *22890 (and other numbers to program the information number and service card to your phone.. I promise i'm not an idiot or begginner but straight talk only knows to tell me to take the battery out and try again, wait a day and another day. MY phone wont call out, recieve calls, go online, send/recieve texts;; it will not let me dial *22890 or any other number for that matter, it surely has reception and my other straight talks work here. I found the hidden menu but i don't know what to change if anything to do a hard reset or get it to work and program my phone to straight talks service so I can use it! PLEASE PLEASE tell me anything you can to help I've searched the web for days, been on the phone with straight talk for hours and hours and they just say wait it out to get me off the phone. nothing will change with time, for some reason it has reception but wont dial out or connect to program, I've tried in different areas and streets it just isnt working. Please help so I can rest easy!!!!
