Yes you can set up your email, it also has an usb port but you will have to buy a cable if you want to hook up directly to computer, I already has a usb cable that came with my kodak camera that fits, and you can use explorer to view the pictures and video on your phone and even download to your computer and then delete from your camera,, but yes you can send anything to your email address, videos and pictures.

You have to buy minutes/time on tracfone's web site, or from stores that carry tracfone minute/time cards. Their web site also does have "plans", so you can check them out there.

Maximum Auto Screen Lock and Back-light timer is 1 minute on this phone.
The Auto Screen Lock function can be turned off but with the on/off and volume buttons both being able to bring up the screen I wouldn't recommend it.

To adjust the Auto Screen Lock, Settings/Phone/Auto Screen Lock
To adjust the Backlight, Settings/Display/Backlight Timer

(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.

Question

Why won't the Lg840G call out from a paired device?

I have an LG840G which I have paired with my phone system on my 2010 Toyota Venza. It had been working fine until a couple of weeks ago. I received a call which I answered on the car receiver, but got no response from the caller. I have tried calling out from the car and the cell phone makes the call, but immediately disconnects before I can talk. I took the car in to the Toyota dealer thinking that there might be a problem with the car's system, but the tech was able to connect his cell phone to the system and make and receive calls, so the problem seems to be with the cell phone. Any ideas?

You might want to try this method first to save your info and settings.
Go to; Bluetooth/My Devices/Options (icon top right of the screen)/Delete/Select "suspect" Device/Delete,
Turn the phone off and back on, then re-pair the two

On your Toyota your dealer serviceman already tried and tested pairing and it worked. That's good.

Now you can try a Reset on your Tracfone. I think you will lose your contacts and messages stored onboard the phone during this process. Before you start, remove the microsd card and don't do this Master Reset while inside your Toyota.

On your phone go to Settings then to Master Reset. This will return your phone to default settings, including Bluetooth.

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.
