Can I access keyboard while I'm on a call. If so, how?

If calling tech support for some product or service, you have to enter a number or a series of numbers -- but how do I access the onscreen keyboard while on a call?

yes, after you dial or after you "accept call" at the bottom of the screen you will see "contacts--dial pad--end call", clicking on "dial pad" will access the dial pad without interfering with your call

WM web site claimed LS840G would not work in my zip too. TF states it does work in my zip. I bought the phone at our local WM. It works. I reported 2 issues with the WM database but neither have been changed. Good phone.

if you are using the search program on this WalMart site, don't,--- go to the TracFone site (link below), I think this WalMart search program says "no" to every zip code, I entered your zip code at TF and the LG840G is one of the approved phones for your area, hope this helps----

Maximum Auto Screen Lock and Back-light timer is 1 minute on this phone.
The Auto Screen Lock function can be turned off but with the on/off and volume buttons both being able to bring up the screen I wouldn't recommend it.

To adjust the Auto Screen Lock, Settings/Phone/Auto Screen Lock
To adjust the Backlight, Settings/Display/Backlight Timer

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.

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.

This phone is packed with a 2GB microSD card already installed, so that will hold lots of MP3's. The phone claims to handle up to a 32GB microSD card, and pretty much any brand should work just fine. There is only 1 microSD slot inside the phone near the battery, so its not something that you will want to change very often as you have to remove the back cover of the phone to get to it.

This LG840G supports MicroSD cards up to 32GB in capacity. I am partial to Samsung and SanDisk brands. They are readily available at many retailers/e-tailers, including Walmart.

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)

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.
