Walmart says LG840G won't work in my area & Tracfone site says it does
I was all ready to purchase this phone for me and my son; however, the Walmart feature at the top of the page says this won't work in my zip code area.
I know the Walmart in my town sells a very similar Tracfone, which I find it hard to believe they'd do if it didn't actually WORK. So I visited the Tracfone website and used their zip code coverage search. Their site says this phone WILL work in my zip code area.
I am now thoroughly confused. Any help would be appreciated.

on TracFone LG840G Cell Phone
I am on second model of the LG Tracfone. Online site has always indicated no coverage this area. Tracfone map indicates no coverage this area.
BY THIS AREA, USING A ZIP CODE. The WM 37 miles away has sold both phones, set both up using a different Zip Code. I have never asked but have had non stop service with phones. Perhaps you should go into a larger store and ask for setup.
When I asked Tracfone to assist in setup, representative tried to set me up with a tower over 50 miles away, a town I had heard of only on the NOAH Severe Weather Reports.
Always upon the TracFone coverage locator. Always! Good Luck!
The TracFone web. site, coverage locator is the one to rely upon. Wal Mart site does the same in my area as well. They (Wally world) don't seem to update their site. One would think that they would want too. Good Luck.
Go by the Tracfone site- the Wal-Mart site is not correct.
