Missi, this phone only has three "Buttons". Power, Volume up and Volume down. Everything else on the phone is "Touch" on the Glass type buttons. Yes it has a QWERTY keyboard or the standard T9 digital style tap keyboard available. Texting works well and consumes approx. 1/3rd of a minute per each SMS 160 character text message both inbound and outbound. The best part is that this is a Triple Minutes for Life phone, so for every 1 minute you pay for, you wind up with 3 on your phone. MMS messages that contain video or pictures will cost more to send and receive depending on the size of the pictures or attachments. Voice quality is outstanding on my phone and volume is nice and loud.

the battery has bars in the upper right hand of the screen, 3 bars. I would charge it when it gets to 1 bar. However if you let it just run it will tell you battery needs charged.

answer 2
in the very top right corner of the regular screen you will see the time display, the battery icon is beside that time display, it will show 3 green bars when fully charged and will reduce to 2 and then 1 bar as you use the phone, the claim is: Talk Time: up to 3.7 hours
Standby Time: up to 13 days

I should have included in the other answer that the only other names I can find for the LG840G is the LG T375 Cookie Smart and LG T395, two phones sold in Europe, the LG840G is so new here that accessories are not yet available under that name so if looking for cases or screen protectors you will need to search for those items under the two European names, the two links below will get you both,-- the screen savers ship from the UK and the silicon cases from Spain:

screen savers: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009525YUK/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i00

silicon case: http://www.ebay.com/itm/350669399759?var=620080272847&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

no, the LG840 is the LG Spyder 2 , the link below is an LG site and you will see the official name is "LG Spyder 2(LG840)", you can see that phone and see that it is completely different in body shape(more rounded corners) from this LG840G, there is also an LG VS840, but each one is a completely different phone:

if you are going by the WalMart search, ignore that,--go to the tracfone.com site(link listed below), I think the WalMart search says "no" to all searches, there must be a problem with their search program,--this LG840g is a great phone and is usable all over the country but check with the tracfone site to be sure:

Each phone operates on a frequency band so you may not have coverage in your area. And maps can be out of date. You should call Tracfone or post a message on their Facebook wall for fast answer.

don't understand your question,-- if you have an old phone and want to transfer everything to this new phone, yes you can---if you have an old phone and just want to buy this new phone and activate it thus having two tracfones, yes you can---if you just have an old phone that is de-activated and want to re-activate it, yes you can, but you have to get a new sim card from Tracfone, once a tracfone is de-activated that sim card is not usable again, must receive a new one(they have told me there is no charge, they mail it to you)
answered 2 years, 8 months ago

answer 2
Maybe.

Some phones are easily reactivated and others are not.

Example, I recently tried to re-activate a 500G and it required a new SIM so Tracfone had to send it.

And if the phone is older that's a factor.

You should call Tracfone Customer Service and see what they say or just buy an airtime card and try re-activation using their website. If it doesn't work you'll still own the airtime card.
