answer 1
The only way I can see is if you type the last name in the first name space, and then type the first name in the last name space, so it will then sort in reverse order than it usually does (it sorts now by first name, so by typing things in reverse, it should sort by last name)

I'm afraid there's no option for that.
If that's how you want contacts to appear on the list you will have to individuality inter the last names first on there contact info page

Yes and you can transfer your minutes too. Just be sure you don't try to activate it before you call customer service or else you'll need to wait a week for them to mail you a new SIM card.

No you can't watch Youtube videos 'on minutes'. This has to do with Tracfone not allowing streaming video.

Question

Locating working phone

According to Walmart.com, the LG840G TracFone will NOT work in zip code 62702.

The odd thing is that, each time I type in the command, asking which phones WILL work, in 62702, Walmart will not list working phones.

The message just repeats, that the LG840G does NOT work.

Anyone else having this problem? If so, how have you resolved this problem?

Go to TRACFONE web site and hit coverage button. 62702 has many phone to choose from including the LG840G. I don't think the Walmart site is correct. My Zip said no coverage but they sell it in my store. It works great! TRACFONE.com for all your answers.

WM web site claimed LS840G would not work in my zip too. TF states it does work in my zip. I bought the phone at our local WM. It works. I reported 2 issues with the WM database but neither have been changed. Good phone.

if you are using the search program on this WalMart site, don't,--- go to the TracFone site (link below), I think this WalMart search program says "no" to every zip code, I entered your zip code at TF and the LG840G is one of the approved phones for your area, hope this helps----

Check the little WiFi signal on the top left of your screen (it looks like a rainbow if it is connected). You can also go into the WiFi settings to make sure your phone is turned on to your WiFI and that it has connected to a WiFi network.

answer 2
in the top left corner of the screen beside the 3G icon you will see a blue signal icon when you are connected to a wifi network, just turning on wifi will not show this icon, it will not show until you are connected to a wifi network, hope this helps

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
