Question

is model # LG840 the same as LG840G ?

I should have included in the other answer that the only other names I can find for the LG840G is the LG T375 Cookie Smart and LG T395, two phones sold in Europe, the LG840G is so new here that accessories are not yet available under that name so if looking for cases or screen protectors you will need to search for those items under the two European names, the two links below will get you both,-- the screen savers ship from the UK and the silicon cases from Spain:

screen savers: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009525YUK/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i00

silicon case: http://www.ebay.com/itm/350669399759?var=620080272847&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

no, the LG840 is the LG Spyder 2 , the link below is an LG site and you will see the official name is "LG Spyder 2(LG840)", you can see that phone and see that it is completely different in body shape(more rounded corners) from this LG840G, there is also an LG VS840, but each one is a completely different phone:

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.

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

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----

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

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

I have been with Safelink which is also tracfone and if you find out your voice mail number you can then dial that number from a landline and follow the promps and it will be free.
