Question

Power up/down volume adjustment?

I have an LG235C which you can set to no volume (silent) when you turn it on (power up) or turn it off (power down). Doesn't make any noise when you turn it on or off. Can you do this on the LG840G?

Yes, on mine, I can MUTE the ringer volume, and shutdown and startup the phone, and no sound is made. I can also set the phone to vibrate, and it will vibrate when turning off and vibrate again when turning back on.

You can move your phone number to your new Tracfone from an old Tracfone, and you should also be able to also move your remaining minutes from the old phone to the new phone.

Once you do so, your SIM card in your old phone will no longer be functional, and Tracfone will need to send you a new SIM card to activate the old phone. You can get a new number during the activation process or "PORT" an existing number you own to the phone if you wish. "Porting" takes about a week to complete in my experience, and can be done vie the Tracfone Web Site.

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.

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

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.
