I got a couple of PMs that I guess should be posted here to simplify things:

Easy root, no download all from the phone:
(Open Dialer)
1.) Dial *983*7668# (do not hit send - you should see a message come up about being root)
2.) Dial *983*24737# (do not hit send - you should see a message saying disabling QID)
3.) Go to market and download and install Superuser by chainsdd or ddchains -- should be the first in the list
4.) Run Superuser, hit the menu button, then select preferences, scroll down to Su Binary and do the update

then you should be all set, you may also consider installing busybox as a few root tools require it.

If using the phone with straight talk:

Download "APN Backup & Restore" from the market. Delete all apns then add the straight talk apn

APN: att.mvno
Proxy: n/a
Port: 80
Username: n/a
Password: n/a
Server: n/a
MMSC: http://mmsc.cingular.com
MMS Proxy: proxy.mvno.tracfone.com
MMS Port: 80
MCC: 410
Authentication type: n/a
APN Type: default, supl

I know that the Straight Talk Sim site tells you to use their internet proxy, I am assuming this is to try to limit your bandwidth. I have used it for 2 months without the proxy and just setup a friends avail (I really do like this phone and he bought it on my recommendation) with the above settings.
