Free roaming - No extra charges.

No.

I mean yes.

I mean roaming is not applicable to Tracfone prepaid, with regard to cost. This phone uses both AT&T and it shares T-Mobile where available and there's no cost change for it.

Does the LG840G work with Verizon cell towers (or ATT or T-mobile) - or is this only determined when phone is activated from your location?

When you buy the phone, it comes with either an AT&T or T-Mobile sim card depending on your area. If you have bad reception, call customer service and they will mail you a new sim card. I had problems with T-Mobile service and they mailed me an AT&T sim card.

"G" in the model name shows it's a GSM phone which is ATT and T-Mobile.

If you're looking for Verizon you would look for a model with "C" or CDMA.

Here's a list of phones available thru Tracfone prepaid, no all are available thru walmart.com

Do Not believe what you see on the walmart website concerning cell phone coverage area.

According to Tracfone website the LG840g will work in your zip area. I think Walmart's zip code lookup for service is not updated. If you get AT&T cell coverage in your area, the phone should work.

Power up/down volume adjustment?

I have an LG235C which you can set to no volume (silent) when you turn it on (power up) or turn it off (power down). Doesn't make any noise when you turn it on or off. Can you do this on the LG840G?

Yes, on mine, I can MUTE the ringer volume, and shutdown and startup the phone, and no sound is made. I can also set the phone to vibrate, and it will vibrate when turning off and vibrate again when turning back on.

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

The triple minutes are automatic. Purchasing a 60-minute card will yield 180 total minutes of airtime.

You have to buy the phone that says 'triple minutes'. When you buy a 60 minute card it will automatically give you 180 minutes on your phone. Simple.
