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:

case/skins for LG 840g

I find many skin/cases for the LG VS840, but none for this LG 840g, is this the same phone? If not, is it the same physical size so that the cases/skins will fit correctly? (thank you to anyone who can answer my question)

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.

yes it does show minutes and DAYS(not date) on the main screen, when you power the phone on it will show expiration DATE for about 5 seconds, then it will go to the main screen and there it will have a constant display of your remaining minutes and the number of remaining DAYS(counting down each day) not your expiration date, you can turn off these displays of minutes and days, but why would anyone want to do that?

Question

Can someone tell me about the volume on this phone?

I see it says hearing aids compatible. I am wondering how loud I can increase the volume (for listening) on the this phone. I am hearing impaired - I wear aids but for some voices I really need to have a higher volume.

Is it adjustable?

Thanks Madman! I actually did buy the phone - it DOES have a hearing aid setting and a TTY setting.

Go to the Settings button on the main Home screen (looks like a little gear) and click that on. There is an option to turn the hearing aid setting off and on (off is a "O" and on is a "|") - if it is on, a teeny tiny ear will display at the top of the screen. :) It is quite cute!

So far, I am liking the sound features of this phone. I can individual set the Call volume different than the ring volume etc. And even the MP3 player (which I am still fooling around with and need to get a bigger card) is good volume. Still playing with the ring settings too and I still seem to miss the calls or maybe I do not have it set right. I usually do halfsie vibrate and ring.

In addition, you can also increase the volume with the volume button on the left side. So, so far so good. I haven't tried the TTY setting yet but I don't talk on the phone enough to test that or the volume settings with different voices.

I have CIC digital aids with no telecoil so my experience might be different but I don't get the feedback like I did with my old tracfone (which honestly was pretty low tech though).

Searching for a good headset with volume and speaker too.

I haven’t found a specific setting to enable a hearing aid option yet.
My best suggestion is to turn on the speaker phone before making and when answering a call
This will significantly increase the volume to what should be an acceptable level

It should. There are only two sim card carriers for Tracfone, AT&T and T-Mobile. The SIM card type phones will work for either SIM card.

Yes and you can transfer your minutes too. Just be sure you don't try to activate it before you call customer service or else you'll need to wait a week for them to mail you a new SIM card.
