can you try this STR again after flashing your phone? What you describe is expected behavior if you are making a repeat purchase because Bango stores a cookie on the device to remember you by. If you flash your phone, it will clear the cookies.
when you say 'create a new account' - is that with a completely new email?
what marketplace server are you using?

Here is a logcat. Please always include logcats because those have helpful JS logging.
hmm. I was able to reproduce it about twice but now I cannot reproduce it (dev or stage). Is this still happening for either of you?

Kumar, I have flashed the device (1.0.1 - 26/06/13) and I am getting the same issue. I have tried it a few times today. 

I have uploaded a new logcat log.

Vikas, can you go into Settings > Device Information > More Information > Developer, tick the box for Console Enabled, and re-upload a logcat? That will show the JS logging.

I have done what you have requested and uploaded a new log. Let me know if you need any more info

Vikas sent me a video showing login and purchase as the second user:

This illustrates that although wifi is turned on, the cell data network is still active (Vikas also confirmed this on IRC). This means that Bango can still identity the device; it does not need to send an MT SMS. 

This is intended behavior. Switching to a new user like this does what is expected because carrier billing is tied to *device* not to user. We can address it better when we send a user ID to bango per bug 879949.

When testing this, I discovered bug 888036, something similar. It is more of an edge case though.
