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.

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

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.

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.

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
