Questions & Answers for Tracfone TracFone LG840G Cell Phone

Question

Why won't the Lg840G call out from a paired device?

I have an LG840G which I have paired with my phone system on my 2010 Toyota Venza. It had been working fine until a couple of weeks ago. I received a call which I answered on the car receiver, but got no response from the caller. I have tried calling out from the car and the cell phone makes the call, but immediately disconnects before I can talk. I took the car in to the Toyota dealer thinking that there might be a problem with the car's system, but the tech was able to connect his cell phone to the system and make and receive calls, so the problem seems to be with the cell phone. Any ideas?

You might want to try this method first to save your info and settings.
Go to; Bluetooth/My Devices/Options (icon top right of the screen)/Delete/Select "suspect" Device/Delete,
Turn the phone off and back on, then re-pair the two

On your Toyota your dealer serviceman already tried and tested pairing and it worked. That's good.

Now you can try a Reset on your Tracfone. I think you will lose your contacts and messages stored onboard the phone during this process. Before you start, remove the microsd card and don't do this Master Reset while inside your Toyota.

On your phone go to Settings then to Master Reset. This will return your phone to default settings, including Bluetooth.

you will only use your minutes if you click on browser without being connected to a wifi. connect to a wifi first, then click on your browser and you won't use any of your minutes. i suggest downloading the opera browser. it is a much better browser.

No.

But you must connect to WiFi before you start your browser.

If you open the browser first then you are not using WiFi.

This is not an Android phone, not a smart phone either.

You can install some JAVA apps, downloadable at getjar.com but nothing new or phone, just old games, Google Maps, and Opera Mini Browser.

No.

I mean yes.

I mean roaming is not applicable to Tracfone prepaid, with regard to cost. This phone uses both AT&T and it shares T-Mobile where available and there's no cost change for it.

Does the LG840G work with Verizon cell towers (or ATT or T-mobile) - or is this only determined when phone is activated from your location?

When you buy the phone, it comes with either an AT&T or T-Mobile sim card depending on your area. If you have bad reception, call customer service and they will mail you a new sim card. I had problems with T-Mobile service and they mailed me an AT&T sim card.

"G" in the model name shows it's a GSM phone which is ATT and T-Mobile.

If you're looking for Verizon you would look for a model with "C" or CDMA.

Here's a list of phones available thru Tracfone prepaid, no all are available thru walmart.com

Question

Locating working phone

According to Walmart.com, the LG840G TracFone will NOT work in zip code 62702.

The odd thing is that, each time I type in the command, asking which phones WILL work, in 62702, Walmart will not list working phones.

The message just repeats, that the LG840G does NOT work.

Anyone else having this problem? If so, how have you resolved this problem?

Go to TRACFONE web site and hit coverage button. 62702 has many phone to choose from including the LG840G. I don't think the Walmart site is correct. My Zip said no coverage but they sell it in my store. It works great! TRACFONE.com for all your answers.

If I understand you correctly, you want to purchase a Tracfone and try it then at a later time you want to transfer your ACTIVE telephone # to this phone.

Yes it can be done. It has to be done in steps. Whatever you do, do not call Tracfone other than as described as follows, because you could lose your telephone # and you won't get it back.

Here's the process, don't miss a step. Activate a new Tracfone. Go to Tracfone.com and create an online account and add the phone. Don't add a lot of minutes and in 90 days let the new Tracfone go inactive. Now call Tracfone and tell them you're ready to reactivate the phone and they will check that it's your phone at your online account and will send a new SIM to the address on record. Remove your SIM from your Tracfone and insert the new SIM and call Tracfone ( could begin this process online if you're comfortable, but you still will have to call them about the new SIM receipt). Tell them you want to port your cell phone from another phone to this inactive phone and they will take it from there.

GGB, to my knowledge, you can "port" your telephone number whenever you change phones. I hope this helps.

The triple minutes are automatic. Purchasing a 60-minute card will yield 180 total minutes of airtime.

You have to buy the phone that says 'triple minutes'. When you buy a 60 minute card it will automatically give you 180 minutes on your phone. Simple.
