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:

First of all, you know you must turn on your phone's WiFi, it's not set to automatic until you make that change.

Then if are unable to connect you'll need to determine that the router is not the issue. The router could be passworded and it can also be setup to not allow unknown wireless connections. Remove the router's password and look in it's Admin settings for access. If you're unsure what that means you could reset your router too which will unblock it. Refer to your routers owner manual for reset information.

Also if you are able to logon to a public/hotspot WiFi then the problem is not with your phone.

Ha, I would bet that you would have to get a new phone, or at least a new SIM card. I bought my phone in a store that tried to transfer my tracfone minutes and time to this new phone...they did it the wrong way, and Tracfone could not fix it except by sending me a new SIM card. I did not want to wait 10-14 days for that, so the store "returned" my phone and I "bought" another one in another store that activated it correctly. So I think it really has something to do with the SIM card. They do not transfer from phone to phone even within the same carrier (and even if it is the same phone!) Tracfone said the SIM in each phone was specific to that one phone.

Not sure what is going on, but I just checked my phone, and when you get to contacts, to add addresses, I have to "add new", then go all the way down the page to "+more fields" and halfway down that page is "add new address".

if you are talking about the black screen that automatically happens after a short time, that is a sleep mode to save power, I suppose you are clearing the black screen by pushing the power button, you don't have to do that, it is easier to push the volume button on the left side of the phone, pushing the volume button will do the same thing as pushing the power button--additional info-- you can "lock" the screen so that no buttons can be pushed accidentally by giving the power button one quick push, to unlock just click the volume button on the left side and you will see the message to "slide up to unlock" the screen--- hope this helps

Like all touchscreens each has it's own feel and takes awhile to get use to.
I like this one better than an LG800 I had, possibly because the screen and keys are a little bigger.
The screen is very sensitive and seemed a little twitchy until I started getting use to it and putting a screen protector on it it mellowed even more

I can find no info about this phone having "GPS capabilities", I think it is just a misprint in that list of features on this site, like the "FM radio", there is no FM radio on this LG840g phone
