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

Does Tracfone have available an android phone?

YES. LG 39C OPTIMUS DYNAMIC II . Bigger 3.8" screen. Same 3 times refill card minutes offered. Don't own one #have 15 cells# but reading the reviews it seems like the best non-flip Tracfone. Has Android 4.1 Operating System. I believe it has a little less talk time #battery usage# at 3.5 hours vice the 3.7 hours of the LG 840G. It is the one I would get.
The LG 39C also uses the more reliable Verizon network vice the good but slightly less coverage area of the LG 840G.
Cost is more at $99.

Question

When phone won't work in specific area

When it is said that the phone won't work in a given area, per zip code given, does that mean you just can't call FROM that area, or does that also mean you can't call TO that area from another area where the phone is said to work???

If your phone gets a signal and you place a call to that area where your phone does not work, it will still go through to any phone/number in that area. It only means your type phone will not be able to connect and place calls in that area.

answer 2
You can't place any call in that area, usually because there is no signal for the phone to connect to.

I doubt it. It might depend on the phone, you will probably have to call TracFone. Sometimes you can use the sim card, but nowadays they aren't so compatible or just won't let you do it.

This phone is packed with a 2GB microSD card already installed, so that will hold lots of MP3's. The phone claims to handle up to a 32GB microSD card, and pretty much any brand should work just fine. There is only 1 microSD slot inside the phone near the battery, so its not something that you will want to change very often as you have to remove the back cover of the phone to get to it.

This LG840G supports MicroSD cards up to 32GB in capacity. I am partial to Samsung and SanDisk brands. They are readily available at many retailers/e-tailers, including Walmart.

Why don't you try using the 3.5MM earphone jack and not the usb port. I think that is the design internt.
