If your area is served by AT&T, this phone should work just fine.

It looks like the "coverage checker" is having issues again. If your carrier will be AT&T it looks their coverage of Fort Wayne is pretty good.

You can use the following to see which carrier TracFone will use:

if you are going by the WalMart search, ignore that,--go to the tracfone.com site(link listed below), I think the WalMart search says "no" to all searches, there must be a problem with their search program,--this LG840g is a great phone and is usable all over the country but check with the tracfone site to be sure:

Each phone operates on a frequency band so you may not have coverage in your area. And maps can be out of date. You should call Tracfone or post a message on their Facebook wall for fast answer.

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.

Yes and you can transfer your minutes too. Just be sure you don't try to activate it before you call customer service or else you'll need to wait a week for them to mail you a new SIM card.

It should. There are only two sim card carriers for Tracfone, AT&T and T-Mobile. The SIM card type phones will work for either SIM card.

answer 1
don't understand your question,-- if you have an old phone and want to transfer everything to this new phone, yes you can---if you have an old phone and just want to buy this new phone and activate it thus having two tracfones, yes you can---if you just have an old phone that is de-activated and want to re-activate it, yes you can, but you have to get a new sim card from Tracfone, once a tracfone is de-activated that sim card is not usable again, must receive a new one(they have told me there is no charge, they mail it to you)
answered 2 years, 3 months ago
By
xyz10
answer 2
Maybe.

Some phones are easily reactivated and others are not.

Example, I recently tried to re-activate a 500G and it required a new SIM so Tracfone had to send it.

And if the phone is older that's a factor.

You should call Tracfone Customer Service and see what they say or just buy an airtime card and try re-activation using their website. If it doesn't work you'll still own the airtime card.

the battery has bars in the upper right hand of the screen, 3 bars. I would charge it when it gets to 1 bar. However if you let it just run it will tell you battery needs charged.

answer 2
in the very top right corner of the regular screen you will see the time display, the battery icon is beside that time display, it will show 3 green bars when fully charged and will reduce to 2 and then 1 bar as you use the phone, the claim is: Talk Time: up to 3.7 hours
Standby Time: up to 13 days

I should have included in the other answer that the only other names I can find for the LG840G is the LG T375 Cookie Smart and LG T395, two phones sold in Europe, the LG840G is so new here that accessories are not yet available under that name so if looking for cases or screen protectors you will need to search for those items under the two European names, the two links below will get you both,-- the screen savers ship from the UK and the silicon cases from Spain:

screen savers: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009525YUK/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i00

silicon case: http://www.ebay.com/itm/350669399759?var=620080272847&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

no, the LG840 is the LG Spyder 2 , the link below is an LG site and you will see the official name is "LG Spyder 2(LG840)", you can see that phone and see that it is completely different in body shape(more rounded corners) from this LG840G, there is also an LG VS840, but each one is a completely different phone:
