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.

With the exception of the 1 Year Card; TracFone cards are good for 90 days, assuming you don't run out of minutes.
If you add minutes before you run out of time, time and minutes left on the phone roll over to the new total

No, it shows on the front a date when you have to put more money on it before you have to re-register it. When you put more money on it, the date changes. It gives you a very long time.

There seems to be a limited number of accessory's available for the LG 480G at the present time, hopefully more will be available in the near future

In foreign markets the LG 480G has been sold under model numbers LG T375 Cookie and LG T395
When searching for accessory's include those model numbers for more options

runninron69, check the actual Tracfone website, to determine whether the LG840G will work in your area. The WM site isn't accurate, as to coverage areas. That being said, since this phone operates on the AT&T network, if you (or any of your friends) have used AT&T in your area, this phone will work, also. I hope this helps.

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.

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.
