This is a GSM Phone and should work just fine on your AT&T network. Mine Does here in Florida, and the same zip code tool said mine would not work either.... but it works just fine.

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

Since you say that you have good coverage with both AT&T and T-Mobile I would say that you won't have any problem with the LG 840G working at your location.

answer 1
Yes.

If you want the easy transfer just go the the Tracfone Website to the Support Menu and select upgrade. Before you begin power on both phones and follow onscreen instructions.

Or you can call the 800# and they'll transfer. Call from a phone other than your current Tracfone and have both phones powered on.

answer 2
Yes.
You can transfer, time, minutes, and port over your old phone number if you wish from one TracFone to another when you activate your new phone.
Via there web site or with the 1-800 activation phone# that comes with the instruction manual the package.

No, you can't. So unless you want to throw away that money use that phone until the minutes (or time) runs out. I have yet to be able to run out of both at the same time.

LG840G Tracfone

Why does it not work in Fargo, ND?

Where 29 and 94 meet, 840G will get an A&T signal in Fargo but not so much 30 miles outside of Fargo. So 840G maybe not be a good prepaid phone for Fargo if you move around alot. As long as you get a signal you can call and text to Anywhere,USA.

You get 10 to 20 complimentary minutes to try the service and see if you can live with it. You can return it to Walmart within 30 days for a refund. That goes for any Tracfone. Given where you live it's good to know you can return it if you need to.

Easy if you do it online....if you call their cust svc line...it will likely take forever and they will probably mess it up. The website is the best way to go...easy step by step q&a.

Yes, do it online. It is much faster and easier and you shouldn't have any problems. Don't call customer service to do this because it will take forever and you will likely have problems. They are very hard to understand.

Yes, easy to do.

The website can do new phone activation and transfer his telephone number at the same time. It takes about 15 minutes.

I've lost count how many times I've transferred to a new phone. And I'm a Tracfone customer since 1999 with the same telephone #.

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.

Walmart, drugstores, truckstops, convenience stores, all sell generic cell phone covers for LG brands. Take the phone to see what works for this phone.

You could also shop online at ebay. com, amazon.com from sellers who'll specifically list the model name for an easy search.

This phone is called an LG T375 Cookie Smart in foreign markets, so you may be able to find a case/cover if you search online for that model.

The other option is looking for a case that that fits a phone that has very similar physical dimensions. Different sites list varying dimensions for the LG840G, but it is safe to assume 4.00-4.08" x 2.32-2.40" x .42-.50" in size.
