If you have AT&T GSM Service in your area, this phone should work just fine... Got mine last night and it works great. It will also work on T-Mobile if that is the prominent provider in your area. The SIM included with the phone will determine which network the phone will be placed on.
This link may help you to determine what network the phone is configured for when buying a phone. If you have an existing phone, its even easier.

My guess is that it will work in the 38619 area code. Walmart has probably not yet updated the "coverage checker" for this newly released phone.

FYI, I plugged in my own zip code as well as the zip codes for all major cities in my area. The coverage checker told me that the phone would not work in any of them. I then tried the zip codes of major cities in other states. Supposedly the phone will not work in any of them, either.

The LG 840G should work at your location. It was a matter of the "coverage checker" not being updated.

Try your zip code now and it will show that the phone will work.

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.

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.

I contacted LG twice with that question They sent me a list of possible sites to look on to find accessories none of which had the 840g listed. In neither response from them did/could/would they tell me a model # that was compatible with the 840g

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?

I have been with Safelink which is also tracfone and if you find out your voice mail number you can then dial that number from a landline and follow the promps and it will be free.
