Maximum Auto Screen Lock and Back-light timer is 1 minute on this phone.
The Auto Screen Lock function can be turned off but with the on/off and volume buttons both being able to bring up the screen I wouldn't recommend it.

To adjust the Auto Screen Lock, Settings/Phone/Auto Screen Lock
To adjust the Backlight, Settings/Display/Backlight Timer

Could Walmart check the 'does it work in your area code' for the Tracfone LG840G -your site says this does not work in any area code in PA ?

Could you check for 15857 -- the LG840G DOES say it will work for Straight Talk, but will this model work for TRACFONE ?

I don't know what's going on with the Walmart zip code check to see if a phone works in an area, several times it's told me a certain phone won't work in my area, but the Tracfone site says it will and my local Walmart is selling that phone. I have bought 2 different phones over the past 3 years from my Walmart that supposedly won't work in my zip code and they work very well.

In my area Walmart site said no. Go to Tracfone site /coverage to be sure. My guess if they sell it in your store it will work in your area. It did in mine. Checked 15857 and you have a lot of phones to choose from. LG840G works there.

Question

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.

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.

If there is AT&T service in your area, this phone will work.

answer 2
This phone uses AT&T's network and shared also with T-Mobile.

If your old Tracfone model name had "C" in the description then I can say you were using Verizon. And if that is so you might you choose another phone with "C" in the model name, like R355c or R375C, or 240C, etc.

Or go ahead and get this phone and try it. It comes with 10 to 20 complimentary minute and you have 14 days to return a cell phone to Walmart. Use the complimentary minutes but do not add airtime until you're sure you will keep it.

You can use the following to see which carrier TracFone will use:

Since you say that you have good coverage with both AT&T and T-Mobile I would say that you won't have any problem with the LG 840G working at your location.

Search eBay or Amazon for an LG T375 or LG T395. The LG 840g has been sold outside the U.S. for a couple of years under these model numbers. There is a seller from Spain that has listings for the silicone gel cases for $5-$6. Amazon has leather cases listed under those model numbers. There is another place www.fatorder.com that is supposed to be getting the gel cases for the LG 840g by late December. Currently listed as out of stock.

Walmart, drugstores, truckstops, convenience stores, all sell generic cell phone covers for LG brands. Take the phone to see what works for this phone.

You could also shop online at ebay. com, amazon.com from sellers who'll specifically list the model name for an easy search.

This phone is called an LG T375 Cookie Smart in foreign markets, so you may be able to find a case/cover if you search online for that model.

The other option is looking for a case that that fits a phone that has very similar physical dimensions. Different sites list varying dimensions for the LG840G, but it is safe to assume 4.00-4.08" x 2.32-2.40" x .42-.50" in size.

1 minute of TRACFONE Mobile Web Access = 0.5 units of airtime. Each time you access the TRACFONE Mobile Web with your TRACFONE's browser, 0.5 units per minute will be deducted from your TRACFONE. TRACFONE Mobile Web Access Charges are deducted in full minute increments. Mobile Web access of less than 60 seconds is rounded up to the next full minute.

There seems to be a limited number of accessory's available for the LG 480G at the present time, hopefully more will be available in the near future

In foreign markets the LG 480G has been sold under model numbers LG T375 Cookie and LG T395
When searching for accessory's include those model numbers for more options
