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 #.

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

Wat?

This is a Tracfone. All the 5 other Tracfones ( one of which was an LG 800G) I have had all work in my zip code but this one says it won't? What's the difference and why is this?

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.

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.

This phone is a TracFone Device and it comes with a new SIM Card. You CANNOT use any other SIM card in it as they bind the SIM Card directly to the phone itself with their programing.

If you are transferring an existing phone number to it, CALL Tech Support or let the Walmart Rep take care of it for you. DON'T TRY TO DO IT ONLINE.

If you want a new number for the phone, you can activate it online pretty easily.

Once a phone number has been assigned to the SIM and it's activated, it cannot be changed, so TracFone would have to send you a NEW SIM in order to transfer your existing number to the phone.
