I have a set of 3.5MM earpbuds and they work fine.
The micro USB ones came with the phone bundle I bought, was trying to find what features they work with and was hoping someone here might know

Why don't you try using the 3.5MM earphone jack and not the usb port. I think that is the design internt.

The only way I can see is if you type the last name in the first name space, and then type the first name in the last name space, so it will then sort in reverse order than it usually does (it sorts now by first name, so by typing things in reverse, it should sort by last name)

I'm afraid there's no option for that.
If that's how you want contacts to appear on the list you will have to individuality inter the last names first on there contact info page

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

answer 1
(update) I just read another post saying safelink is contracted through TracFone like Straight Talk is.
If that's the case my last reply may be in error, and it may be possible to transfer your safelink minutes over to your TracFone after all

answer 2
To transfer your old providers # to your TracFone via phone call (1-800-867-7183) or on line at http://www.tracfone.com
But if your asking if you can also transfer the minutes you had on your safelink account to your TracFone account the answer is no.
You may only transfer minutes from one TracFone to another not from outside providers

http://www.tracfone.com/questions.jsp
To transfer your number from your Old Service Provider to TracFone Wireless, you must ask TracFone to Port your existing telephone number. TracFone Wireless will process the request for you. During this process, your service with your current provider will be disconnected automatically and Activated with the new provider you have selected. There is no need for you to call your current provider to disconnect your service. During the Request process, you will still be able to place calls on your existing wireless telephone or wire line phone. You, however, will not be able to receive calls during the porting process.

From your phone dial in to Voicemail and after you hear messages press 4 for more options, press 2 for Administrative Options, press 1 to change your password.

You may also dial in from a different phone and after you hear the greeting press the asterisk and type your current password. Then press, 4,2,1.

Question

Why won't the Lg840G call out from a paired device?

I have an LG840G which I have paired with my phone system on my 2010 Toyota Venza. It had been working fine until a couple of weeks ago. I received a call which I answered on the car receiver, but got no response from the caller. I have tried calling out from the car and the cell phone makes the call, but immediately disconnects before I can talk. I took the car in to the Toyota dealer thinking that there might be a problem with the car's system, but the tech was able to connect his cell phone to the system and make and receive calls, so the problem seems to be with the cell phone. Any ideas?

You might want to try this method first to save your info and settings.
Go to; Bluetooth/My Devices/Options (icon top right of the screen)/Delete/Select "suspect" Device/Delete,
Turn the phone off and back on, then re-pair the two

On your Toyota your dealer serviceman already tried and tested pairing and it worked. That's good.

Now you can try a Reset on your Tracfone. I think you will lose your contacts and messages stored onboard the phone during this process. Before you start, remove the microsd card and don't do this Master Reset while inside your Toyota.

On your phone go to Settings then to Master Reset. This will return your phone to default settings, including Bluetooth.

Don't say what kind of "old phone" you have, so shooting in the dark here...
A: Bluetooth
B: Directly via mini/to/mini USB cable
C: To PC from old phone then to new phone
D: Put old phone's SD card in new phone. (and/or) move pic's to internal memory, reinstall new SD card and move pic's to it
E: Email
F: Text
G: Osmosis, Telepathy, Smoke Signals

You will have to purchase a separate cable (if you don't already have one# that will allow you to transfer photos from this phone #or computer, etc.) The only thing that can be transferred from one Tracfone to another is the phone # & current minutes. Hope this helps. I contacted Tracfone and this is what they told me.
