Well now that ST (ST= Straight Talk) sells sim cards for $15 the answer is yes but no cloning needed. It only works with the $45 unlimited everything plan. Just buy one sim card and put it in the Sprint TP2. Also buy one free ST phone that comes with the $45 refill card. Then go here and follow instructions to sim unlock the TP2. http://forum.ppcgeeks.com/cdma-tp2-d...-unlocker.html
Pay around $20 to sim unlock your Touch Pro 2...
Use the $45 refill card to to activate the sim card you paid $15 for and sell the cheep phone you got for free for $20. Do this every month if its worth your time. Depending on the free phone that comes with the $45 card you may get more then $20 for it.
Its better then cloning the phone because this sim card will work in any unlocked phone. Will work with a locked phone if its a T-Mobile or AT&T phone. I see people say it works with the Sprint I phone also.
Only thing is the sim card will not work in a Straight talk phone. I just tryed taking the ST sim card out of my Sprint TP2 and putting it in the free phone they gave me. It said something about putting in an unlock code and gave me 5 tries? It said 911 calls only. The phone did not do this when I put in my JOLT Sim card.
I guess cloning a cheep phone would allow you to use ST"s cheaper money per minute refill cards.

Oh one more thing. My internet is very slow. It works but its slower then Sprint EVDO and even slower then Sprint 1X. The Sprint TP2 only supports slow internet speed when using the sim card.
I bet some very educated person could create a flash to fix this but with every one going to the Android and the I phone I doubt this person will take the time to provide us with the flash. Microsoft has committed suicide with there smart phones and I wont be a part of it for much longer.
PS also my MMS is trying to fetch the photo from sprint so I cant send or receive any MMS.. Regular text messaging works.
Im still searching and having trouble finding how to change this setting.
