Question

Does the LG840G use AT&T towers?

Only Verizon and AT&T towers seemed to work where I travel. I tried calling and also emailed Tracfone and haven't gotten an answer. If anyone knows I would appreciate the info. Thanks

Trackfones and Net10 phones are both AT&T network based phones so they should work with AT&T towers.

No it does not have the sliding keyboard. It has a virtual qwerty keyboard that can be used for texting, entering url's and contacts. Everything else is the old numeric type keyboard.

No, probably not. This phone uses a proprietary operating system so the Tango Android app won't work.

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.

Go under message and click the right upper button next to inbox. go into message settings then go down to voicemail number and there you go there is your number. helpful hint you can dial that number on a landline and follow the promps and it will cost you nothing no mins off your phone if you do it that way.

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.

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:
