Why does your website warn about service in 33952 zip code

answer 1
walmart database was wrong for my zip too. phone is sold in our local walmart. works just great. i send WM an email and told them but they have not fixed the problem. i checked my zip on the TF web site to verify it would work before buying. Also some phones "will work" if you just buy the phone but a "bundle" and the same phone will NOT work. i sent an email about that too but no changes have been made to their web site. WM is missing out on potential revenue. too bad for WM.

don't use the search program on this Walmart site, it seems to say "no" to all zip codes, go to the Tracfone site(link below) you will find this phone is among the ones they list for your area, happy phoning......

Question

Getting conflicting reviews as far as coverage is concerned.will it work in34788 zip code area?

I bought a new std size sim from Tmobile as I was planning to buy an unlocked gsm prepaid phone. Bought their refill card also. I like lg840g phone. If I buy it am I going to be able to put that sim and use it in 34788 zip code? My apple I pad has AT&T sim and it works fine here. Which network do tracfone and straight talk use ? Or whose sim does this phone lg840g originally use? Thank you.

According to a Tracfone review site, concerning the LG 840g, they usually use AT&T or sometimes T-mobile which are both GSM. FYI: Tracfone is a locked phone and you can't change the SIM. Don't know what Straight Talk uses.

There should be good coverage in your area.
But there's a small gap around Lake Don and larger ones around Lake Kerr and Lake Butler

You activate purchased minutes cards via your phones "add minutes" interface or on the TracFone web site.
Wal Mart isn't involved in the process.

You can move your phone number to your new Tracfone from an old Tracfone, and you should also be able to also move your remaining minutes from the old phone to the new phone.

Once you do so, your SIM card in your old phone will no longer be functional, and Tracfone will need to send you a new SIM card to activate the old phone. You can get a new number during the activation process or "PORT" an existing number you own to the phone if you wish. "Porting" takes about a week to complete in my experience, and can be done vie the Tracfone Web Site.

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.
