You will need to check the Tracfone web site to be sure, but I believe there is no service in Canada with this phone... Service is only in the USA using AT&T and other major carriers.

Open the Dialpad, and Press and HOLD the 1 Key. It will call the Voice mail Box and allow you to set it up.

If it has a PIN number, the default will the the last 4 digits of your phone number. If not, you will be prompted to add one.

Good Luck!!

Does Tracfone have available an android phone?

YES. LG 39C OPTIMUS DYNAMIC II . Bigger 3.8" screen. Same 3 times refill card minutes offered. Don't own one #have 15 cells# but reading the reviews it seems like the best non-flip Tracfone. Has Android 4.1 Operating System. I believe it has a little less talk time #battery usage# at 3.5 hours vice the 3.7 hours of the LG 840G. It is the one I would get.
The LG 39C also uses the more reliable Verizon network vice the good but slightly less coverage area of the LG 840G.
Cost is more at $99.

go to the Tracfone site(link listed below) and enter your area code there, you may find a completely different answer there, I have checked several of these where people say this WalMart site says "no", but the TracFone site says "yes" and list this phone and all the other TracFones phones that will work in their area:

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.

I contacted LG twice with that question They sent me a list of possible sites to look on to find accessories none of which had the 840g listed. In neither response from them did/could/would they tell me a model # that was compatible with the 840g

yes it does show minutes and DAYS(not date) on the main screen, when you power the phone on it will show expiration DATE for about 5 seconds, then it will go to the main screen and there it will have a constant display of your remaining minutes and the number of remaining DAYS(counting down each day) not your expiration date, you can turn off these displays of minutes and days, but why would anyone want to do that?

Question

Can someone tell me about the volume on this phone?

I see it says hearing aids compatible. I am wondering how loud I can increase the volume (for listening) on the this phone. I am hearing impaired - I wear aids but for some voices I really need to have a higher volume.

Is it adjustable?

Thanks Madman! I actually did buy the phone - it DOES have a hearing aid setting and a TTY setting.

Go to the Settings button on the main Home screen (looks like a little gear) and click that on. There is an option to turn the hearing aid setting off and on (off is a "O" and on is a "|") - if it is on, a teeny tiny ear will display at the top of the screen. :) It is quite cute!

So far, I am liking the sound features of this phone. I can individual set the Call volume different than the ring volume etc. And even the MP3 player (which I am still fooling around with and need to get a bigger card) is good volume. Still playing with the ring settings too and I still seem to miss the calls or maybe I do not have it set right. I usually do halfsie vibrate and ring.

In addition, you can also increase the volume with the volume button on the left side. So, so far so good. I haven't tried the TTY setting yet but I don't talk on the phone enough to test that or the volume settings with different voices.

I have CIC digital aids with no telecoil so my experience might be different but I don't get the feedback like I did with my old tracfone (which honestly was pretty low tech though).

Searching for a good headset with volume and speaker too.

I haven’t found a specific setting to enable a hearing aid option yet.
My best suggestion is to turn on the speaker phone before making and when answering a call
This will significantly increase the volume to what should be an acceptable level
