Texting?

Does anyone know how the texting is. Does it have a qwerty keyboard?? And how is the voice quality

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.

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.

Probably not this exact phone... It is hard coded as a TracFone, but if you check the Net10 Site, you will likely find a similar phone.

No, you'll need to purchase the Net10 version of this phone to use with the Net10 service.

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

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.

I haven't found any yet, but the phone is so new I don't think anyone has come up with any. Although LG makes a similar phone, LG T375, which is basically the same phone, but it's a 'real phone' that you use on regular (not Tracfone/Net10 plans) programs. So far I've found screen protectors for that model on Amazon and they work just fine. I'm hoping they come up with actual LG 840g accessories soon.

Yes. You can make international calls at the same rate as calling locally. They don't charge extra for an international call.

Yes. They had this phone as a today's special value on HSN this past Sunday and the rep said you can call a hundred different countries. The good thing is, the international calls count the same as making a local call, so you don't use a lot of extra minutes, it's like calling your next door neighbor.
