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

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.

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

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.

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

Don't say what kind of "old phone" you have, so shooting in the dark here...
A: Bluetooth
B: Directly via mini/to/mini USB cable
C: To PC from old phone then to new phone
D: Put old phone's SD card in new phone. (and/or) move pic's to internal memory, reinstall new SD card and move pic's to it
E: Email
F: Text
G: Osmosis, Telepathy, Smoke Signals

You will have to purchase a separate cable (if you don't already have one# that will allow you to transfer photos from this phone #or computer, etc.) The only thing that can be transferred from one Tracfone to another is the phone # & current minutes. Hope this helps. I contacted Tracfone and this is what they told me.

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:

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.
