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:

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)

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.

answer 1
(update) I just read another post saying safelink is contracted through TracFone like Straight Talk is.
If that's the case my last reply may be in error, and it may be possible to transfer your safelink minutes over to your TracFone after all

answer 2
To transfer your old providers # to your TracFone via phone call (1-800-867-7183) or on line at http://www.tracfone.com
But if your asking if you can also transfer the minutes you had on your safelink account to your TracFone account the answer is no.
You may only transfer minutes from one TracFone to another not from outside providers

http://www.tracfone.com/questions.jsp
To transfer your number from your Old Service Provider to TracFone Wireless, you must ask TracFone to Port your existing telephone number. TracFone Wireless will process the request for you. During this process, your service with your current provider will be disconnected automatically and Activated with the new provider you have selected. There is no need for you to call your current provider to disconnect your service. During the Request process, you will still be able to place calls on your existing wireless telephone or wire line phone. You, however, will not be able to receive calls during the porting process.

I doubt it. It might depend on the phone, you will probably have to call TracFone. Sometimes you can use the sim card, but nowadays they aren't so compatible or just won't let you do it.

No plan. It means if you put a 20.00 card on it, the minutes shown on that card will triple automatically, you won't have to put in a code.

You will need to check the Tracfone web site to be sure, but I believe there is no service in Canada with this phone... Service is only in the USA using AT&T and other major carriers.

Got my TracFone yesterday, and from the specs that I found in the LG Manual, this phone DOES NOT HAVE AN FM RADIO. Can't find any documentation on it in the official manual or the phone itself. Looks like a Typo in the Description for the TracFone LG840G.

There is no FM radio on the LG840G TracFone. It is a mistake on the Walmart website. Foreign market versions of this LG phone do include an FM radio.

In the same vein, Walmart lists that the phone has GPS capabilities. There are no GPS apps installed on the phone. If by GPS capabilities they mean that 911 can tell where you're calling from...then yes, it has GPS capabilities.

If your area is served by AT&T, this phone should work just fine.

It looks like the "coverage checker" is having issues again. If your carrier will be AT&T it looks their coverage of Fort Wayne is pretty good.

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

I would say that you won't have any problem with the LG 840G working at your location
