anyone have success (or problems) signing up for a miles & smiles membership?

I am using the sign-up link from the main TurkishAirlines page and have had no success. Tried multiple browsers on different days. Either nothing at all happens or a "technical error" pops up.

Booked EWR-HNL-EWR on United for my brother and SIL for 60K Marriott -> 30K Turkish today. Took about 24 minutes on the phone.  TK provided an e-ticket number for both passengers and a PNR. When I check the PNR on the United site it shows only one passenger on the itinerary and the named passenger is my name, not my brother's name as is shown in the TK email confirmation. I checked with TK and they confirm the flights were ticketed and issued to the 2 correct passengers and that I need to follow up with United to confirm everything else. If I give United the PNR they do not see any of those details. When I give United the e-ticket number from TK they say they cannot see the details not make any changes (e.g., like assigning seats) because it is a partner ticket and that I need to contact TK to make sure the tickets were issued.

Is it possible it just takes a few days for the itinerary to be ticketed? Shouldn't United be able to see the correct number of passengers and names from my PNR? Any advice on how to proceed?

It took about a month convincing TK there was an issue with their system. They finally agreed to reach out to United and they resolved the issue within a few days.

Soon to book my tickets as there is wide open economy non-stop availability. Just trying to decide on where to start my trip - Maui or Kauai.

PSA (thanks to JudahMcB) - email/phone inquiries to Boston office, rather than NY or CHI.

Very simple questions, but when transferring Citi TYP to Turkish (trying to book 15,000 Hawaii flights and at the beginning of this crazy convoluted process), do you put the letters TK or just the 9 numbers after it. Don't want to do anything to mess the transfer up. Also, does anyone know if there are any restrictions when transferring or booking with Turkish on United (for instance, Korean wouldn't let me book more than 5 people including myself on Delta, and they all had to be family members and verified beforehand with birth certificates) regarding family members. Thanks!

Just FYI. Reports on FT are that TK cant do partner bookings at the moment.

Why would you transfer before putting something on hold?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Do they give reasons? Is this a temp glitch or a more permanent change?

Has anyone tried their Turkish number ($0.01/minute w GV)? I called this number few times the past 2 months and was able to get it done (most of the times).
