Notes: Based on setting up these two phones recently, I believe it's most likely that the initial phone provisioning is best done using one of the proxy setups, and that having a strong signal helps. Once the phone is activated and fully functioning, it's usually possible to switch away from the proxy servers that seem to give a lot of people trouble, based on what I see in the NET10 forums.

It is not required to unlock an AT&T based phone to use a NET10 (or Straight Talk) AT&T network SIM, although unlocking the phone will allow its use on other GSM networks, as long as the network supports 1900mhz for 3G/4G data. 

I encourage NET10 users to post their settings that work, and the phone model. NET10 customer service is usually not known for being terribly knowledgeable or responsive on the phone - from my short experience making a post on the NET10 forums usually gets a response from a more senior CSR fairly quickly.
