I know that with my GPP. To activate FaceTime and iMessage. I had to edit some carrier bundles. Both the carrierlabs one and the unknown carrier bundle. There's an activation gateway setting containing a phone number that an SMS is sent to for activation. If you google for it, you'll find solutions. I can also post exactly what I did for my GPP to work on straight talk once I get home and open my notes.

Here we go. Using iFunbox, this is exactly what I did to get my 6.1.2 sprint locked 4S to use iMessage on straight talk (AT&T) using a "New GPP".
backup and edit /System/Library/Carrier Bundles/iPhone/CarrierLab.bundle/carrier.plist In that file, find the key that looks like this.... <key>PhoneNumberRegistrationGatewayAddress</key> <string>+447786205094</string> and change the "<string>+447786205094</string>" to be "<string>28818773</string>" Then find this key and value: <key>RedialOnRRCConnectionFailure</key> <false/> and change the "<false/>" to be "<true/>" We're done with that file. Now backup and edit /System/Library/Carrier Bundles/iPhone/Unknown.bundle/carrier.plist Find this key and set of values: <key>PhoneNumberRegistrationGatewayAddress</key> <array> <string>+447537410207</string> <string>+447537410217</string> <string>+447537410227</string> <string>+447537410237</string> <string>+447537410247</string> <string>+447537410257</string> <string>+447537410267</string> <string>+447537410277</string> <string>+447537410287</string> <string>+447537410297</string> </array> And replace "<array> ... ... ... ... ... ... </array>" with "<string>28818773</string>" And if you don't want to have the popup that warns that SMS messages may cost money when activating iMessage/FaceTime, then find this key: <key>RegistrationOptInRequired</key> <true/> And replace the "<true/>" with "<false/>"

Also, forgot to mention in case it wasn't obvious. You need to reboot after editing those files. Then iMessage should activate in approximately 10 minutes.

Also, I just found a problem with mine. I no longer receive visual voicemails. I'm not sure if this is a new ios6 setting, but the voicemail area is missing from where you change the APN settings. Have you ever experienced this? Lack of voicemail notification/visual voicemail could definitely be a deal breaker for me.

This is the about section of my sprint locked 4s.. I ordered the rsim 7 4 days ago because I am an idiot and didn't see the 7+
Either way their site claims that the 7 supports unlock & activation on 6.1.2 so I should be ok.
Also instead of using ifunbox can't I just SSH and edit the bundles that way to solve the imessage and facetime issue?
Is a bad MEID going to prevent me from being able to activate my phone with AT&T or Straight Talk??
Last but certainly not least by any means, I am curious which sim card to get. Can I just go to AT&T and get one from them?? I'm going to assume that its pay month to month regardless where the sim comes from?
Hopefully with the answers to these questions I can be next to post a success story!!
