walmart database was wrong for my zip too. phone is sold in our local walmart. works just great. i send WM an email and told them but they have not fixed the problem. i checked my zip on the TF web site to verify it would work before buying. Also some phones "will work" if you just buy the phone but a "bundle" and the same phone will NOT work. i sent an email about that too but no changes have been made to their web site. WM is missing out on potential revenue. too bad for WM.

don't use the search program on this Walmart site, it seems to say "no" to all zip codes, go to the Tracfone site(link below) you will find this phone is among the ones they list for your area, happy phoning......

From your phone dial in to Voicemail and after you hear messages press 4 for more options, press 2 for Administrative Options, press 1 to change your password.

You may also dial in from a different phone and after you hear the greeting press the asterisk and type your current password. Then press, 4,2,1.

You don't say if you use a hearing aid or not?
Phone has "hands free" speaker option that increases the volume quite a bit
It also has a built in TTY hearing aid function

Question

will Lg 840g pair with Ford sync bluetooth?

Has anyone had problems pairing The sync Bluetooth in Ford vehicles to LG 840G Trac. We tried, didn't work. Dealership could not make it pair as well. Spoke with Trac Corporate; they could not understand why didn't work either. Quick response appreciated.

Max, yes you CAN pair the two, even though everyone says it's not possible. First, configure the phone -- ALL contacts must be stored on the SIM card, rather than phone memory. The phone will usually store contact to "memory" by default... you'll have to swap them to the SIM card in the "contacts" list. Also, the telephone numbers have to be entered with the "1" preceding the number. Sync won't recognize the entries, without that format. Ok, once you have that completed, the phone is ready. Now, go into the "phone" settings in the Sync system and delete ALL info from the previous phone, including the contact list #phonebook#. Then, switch on the Bluetooth on the LG840...the Sync system should walk you through the pairing process and then ask if you want to "download phonebook". Tell it "yes". After that, you should be good to go. Mine works as well as it did with the Galaxy S3 that was previously connected. I hope this helps!!

You know, one would think that 'Bluetooth' operating specs. would be the same from device to device. As you have found there are problems. Could be as simple as a wire bundle shielding the rec. antenna port or simply, will not work. If the reception port is visible is there a 'film' of protection over the trim somewhere that is still in place. (this for wireless). For plugin, it isn't impossible for small mini harness to be defective. Try another. I hope any of this helps. Good Luck. ( i am trained in 2-way Radio Communications)

Question

Locating working phone

According to Walmart.com, the LG840G TracFone will NOT work in zip code 62702.

The odd thing is that, each time I type in the command, asking which phones WILL work, in 62702, Walmart will not list working phones.

The message just repeats, that the LG840G does NOT work.

Anyone else having this problem? If so, how have you resolved this problem?

Go to TRACFONE web site and hit coverage button. 62702 has many phone to choose from including the LG840G. I don't think the Walmart site is correct. My Zip said no coverage but they sell it in my store. It works great! TRACFONE.com for all your answers.

i have wondered the same thing, the book that comes with it is not very clear. I did notice however that when checking out the phone that there is an option, do you want to save the picture to the memory card or phone.

You can move your phone number to your new Tracfone from an old Tracfone, and you should also be able to also move your remaining minutes from the old phone to the new phone.

Once you do so, your SIM card in your old phone will no longer be functional, and Tracfone will need to send you a new SIM card to activate the old phone. You can get a new number during the activation process or "PORT" an existing number you own to the phone if you wish. "Porting" takes about a week to complete in my experience, and can be done vie the Tracfone Web Site.

This phone is a TracFone Device and it comes with a new SIM Card. You CANNOT use any other SIM card in it as they bind the SIM Card directly to the phone itself with their programing.

If you are transferring an existing phone number to it, CALL Tech Support or let the Walmart Rep take care of it for you. DON'T TRY TO DO IT ONLINE.

If you want a new number for the phone, you can activate it online pretty easily.

Once a phone number has been assigned to the SIM and it's activated, it cannot be changed, so TracFone would have to send you a NEW SIM in order to transfer your existing number to the phone.

Got my TracFone yesterday, and from the specs that I found in the LG Manual, this phone DOES NOT HAVE AN FM RADIO. Can't find any documentation on it in the official manual or the phone itself. Looks like a Typo in the Description for the TracFone LG840G.

There is no FM radio on the LG840G TracFone. It is a mistake on the Walmart website. Foreign market versions of this LG phone do include an FM radio.

In the same vein, Walmart lists that the phone has GPS capabilities. There are no GPS apps installed on the phone. If by GPS capabilities they mean that 911 can tell where you're calling from...then yes, it has GPS capabilities.
