Downloading music from websites is not available with this Tracfone, can't be done on the network and there is no WiFi connectivity.

You can transfer from your PC to the 530G. Install a microsd memory card first then use a USB cable to transfer.

Here's the user guide link:

When you click to enlarge the picture of the phone, the icon on that button looks like it is for the clock and calendar (it's the same icon that was on a button on a LG phone I had a couple of years ago). I do not own the phone you are asking about, but I recognize the icon.

Question

The LG530's item description says wifi, owners of it saying NO wifi though???

In "item description" it says the Bluetooth technology allows you to use it at any location that has a WiFi signal... BUT - the customers Owning it say it Does NOT have WiFi capabilities.
My no-contract phone thru Boost was disconnected over 6mo. ago when I was laid off. I cant make calls & even Lost my oassigned phone number - However - I use it daily for anything online, download music, apps, etc.
BECAUSE it uses the WiFi in our home.
Im confused as to WHY you even NEED 2go somewhere w/ WiFi - if you're only allowed to use it thru the minutes you have purchased on that phone anyway...
( & esp. if its not WiFi capable at All - like customers are saying?!)
??????
Obviously idk alot about the technical way it works or not, I just DEF need 2know the right answer for this phone because I can only afford tracfone now (Ill only be txting & rarely using it) & Really want to go back to Qwerty keyboard like my old blackberry.
Im not very fast at typing on my Boost touch screen, actually takes me longer -even with swype!?
If Anyone understands my dilemma & could shed some light I would appreciate it very much!! :)
If not, Ill just have to carry 2phones around at home just to be able to go online from what I understand... THANKS!!

530G doesn't have Wifi.

There are currently two Tracfones that have WiFi, the S390G and the 840G. Both are great phones. S390G has a QWERTY keypad like 530G while 840G is a touchscreen.

It can work after calling and speaking to an operator and inputing codes into the phone. Activation takes about ten minutes.

This phone has AT&T coverage shared with T-Mobile in some areas, where available.

It's not Verizon, not Sprint.

Decide for yourself. Buy the phone which comes with 10 to 20 complimentary minutes to try out, then if it doesn't work you can return it. Don't redeem an airtime card as you can't get a refund on those.

Talk and Internet net burn by the minute.

SMS texts to send or receive are .30 units per minute.

MMS messages to send or receive are .50 plus the cost of data transfer. For example my friend has an Iphone and it burns several minutes when she sends a message to my phone from her email.

And there is no data plan. You buy minutes in different amounts.
