Activating a new 341u on ChitChat

So I tried for days to activate a new device (BYOD) on ChitChat. They were not as helpful as I had hoped. Besides using the EID (ICCID), what else is needed to get a new device activated on a Sprint based MVNO provider?



FireBreak

It needs to have a Sprint SIM card in it. Does it have a Sprint logo? If not, it probably doesn't have a Sprint SIM card.

It has to have a Sprint user id. At least my MVNO seems to have a unique user ID for each customer. It looks like XX..XX@sprintpcs.com.

The box it is mounted in needs to have some sort of network manager software, such as that provided by Sprint. It needs to point the APN at Sprint. Mine is the lower case alpha numeric r.ispn. Note: last period is punctuation, not part of the APN.

ChitChat Mobile does not activate the 341Us.

I guess not. They tried. I was wondering if the ESN activation was all that was required. I never got an APN or login information so I was wondering if they just did not complete what was suppose to be a "normal" activation.
