why will the lg840g not work in the 38619 aire

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

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.

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.

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.

LG840G Tracfone

Why does it not work in Fargo, ND?

on TracFone LG840G Cell Phone

Answers
answer 1
Where 29 and 94 meet, 840G will get an A&T signal in Fargo but not so much 30 miles outside of Fargo. So 840G maybe not be a good prepaid phone for Fargo if you move around alot. As long as you get a signal you can call and text to Anywhere,USA.

You get 10 to 20 complimentary minutes to try the service and see if you can live with it. You can return it to Walmart within 30 days for a refund. That goes for any Tracfone. Given where you live it's good to know you can return it if you need to.

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.
