Questions & Answers for Tracfone TracFone LG840G Cell Phone

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.

alexis66 - if it doesn't say "triple minutes for life" on the packaging, I doubt that you would get that feature. I hope this helps.

Do Not believe what you see on the walmart website concerning cell phone coverage area.

According to Tracfone website the LG840g will work in your zip area. I think Walmart's zip code lookup for service is not updated. If you get AT&T cell coverage in your area, the phone should work.

Question

When phone won't work in specific area

When it is said that the phone won't work in a given area, per zip code given, does that mean you just can't call FROM that area, or does that also mean you can't call TO that area from another area where the phone is said to work???

If your phone gets a signal and you place a call to that area where your phone does not work, it will still go through to any phone/number in that area. It only means your type phone will not be able to connect and place calls in that area.

answer 2
You can't place any call in that area, usually because there is no signal for the phone to connect to.

Getting conflicting reviews as far as coverage is concerned.will it work in34788 zip code area?

I bought a new std size sim from Tmobile as I was planning to buy an unlocked gsm prepaid phone. Bought their refill card also. I like lg840g phone. If I buy it am I going to be able to put that sim and use it in 34788 zip code? My apple I pad has AT&T sim and it works fine here. Which network do tracfone and straight talk use ? Or whose sim does this phone lg840g originally use? Thank you.

According to a Tracfone review site, concerning the LG 840g, they usually use AT&T or sometimes T-mobile which are both GSM. FYI: Tracfone is a locked phone and you can't change the SIM. Don't know what Straight Talk uses.

There should be good coverage in your area.
But there's a small gap around Lake Don and larger ones around Lake Kerr and Lake Butler

i have wondered the same thing, the book that comes with it is not very clear. I did notice however that when checking out the phone that there is an option, do you want to save the picture to the memory card or phone.

No plan. It means if you put a 20.00 card on it, the minutes shown on that card will triple automatically, you won't have to put in a code.

You activate purchased minutes cards via your phones "add minutes" interface or on the TracFone web site.
Wal Mart isn't involved in the process.
