    Security PIN for New account

    After hours on the phone. Three SIM cards later and many days waiting my E71 is finally working
    Im trying to make a new account at straighttalk.com, it asks me to enter my phone number, then asks for a 5 digit security PIN... What is this? I called ST and they say they have no PIN on file.
    I tried 00000, zip code, last 5 dig of phone serial number, last 5 dig of phone number....

    No, the phone wouldnt activate online. It kept telling me the phone was already active under a diff account. Thats why i needed to call in. I bought the phone from ST.

    Nevermind. Called again... this time the CSR knew what to do. She set up a PIN and account for me.

    Yup. If you call in to activate you need to find a competent CSR to set a PIN for you. I had this problem when I tried to set up my account online, too. It took a Facebook ticket to fix it.

    I set up a ST PIN online during the setup process; however I'm not sure where I input it on the iPhone 4 (or whether I even need to) to get it working. When I install the SIM I can make phone calls, but no SMS or Data... When I install a friend's SIM; everything works (phone, SMS and Data). Which makes me believe that its not the phone...it's got to be the SIM.
