IMHO it's a very expensive phone and service you are paying for. It should work without any "tweeks"
Mine has only 4 gold pins. I was thinking that might be the problem, but then thought it probably wouldn't work at all if that was the case. So your new one has all 5??
Thanks for the info. I'm gonna try to get a new one.
