If you have AT&T GSM Service in your area, this phone should work just fine... Got mine last night and it works great. It will also work on T-Mobile if that is the prominent provider in your area. The SIM included with the phone will determine which network the phone will be placed on.
This link may help you to determine what network the phone is configured for when buying a phone. If you have an existing phone, its even easier.

My guess is that it will work in the 38619 area code. Walmart has probably not yet updated the "coverage checker" for this newly released phone.

FYI, I plugged in my own zip code as well as the zip codes for all major cities in my area. The coverage checker told me that the phone would not work in any of them. I then tried the zip codes of major cities in other states. Supposedly the phone will not work in any of them, either.

Question

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.

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.

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.

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.

answer 1
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

runninron69, check the actual Tracfone website, to determine whether the LG840G will work in your area. The WM site isn't accurate, as to coverage areas. That being said, since this phone operates on the AT&T network, if you (or any of your friends) have used AT&T in your area, this phone will work, also. I hope this helps.
