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.

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 And maps can be out of date.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.

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:

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
