Question

Getting conflicting reviews as far as coverage is concerned.will it work in34788 zip code area?

I bought a new std size sim from Tmobile as I was planning to buy an unlocked gsm prepaid phone. Bought their refill card also. I like lg840g phone. If I buy it am I going to be able to put that sim and use it in 34788 zip code? My apple I pad has AT&T sim and it works fine here. Which network do tracfone and straight talk use ? Or whose sim does this phone lg840g originally use? Thank you.

According to a Tracfone review site, concerning the LG 840g, they usually use AT&T or sometimes T-mobile which are both GSM. FYI: Tracfone is a locked phone and you can't change the SIM. Don't know what Straight Talk uses.

There should be good coverage in your area.
But there's a small gap around Lake Don and larger ones around Lake Kerr and Lake Butler

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.

answer 1
(update) I just read another post saying safelink is contracted through TracFone like Straight Talk is.
If that's the case my last reply may be in error, and it may be possible to transfer your safelink minutes over to your TracFone after all

answer 2
To transfer your old providers # to your TracFone via phone call (1-800-867-7183) or on line at http://www.tracfone.com
But if your asking if you can also transfer the minutes you had on your safelink account to your TracFone account the answer is no.
You may only transfer minutes from one TracFone to another not from outside providers

http://www.tracfone.com/questions.jsp
To transfer your number from your Old Service Provider to TracFone Wireless, you must ask TracFone to Port your existing telephone number. TracFone Wireless will process the request for you. During this process, your service with your current provider will be disconnected automatically and Activated with the new provider you have selected. There is no need for you to call your current provider to disconnect your service. During the Request process, you will still be able to place calls on your existing wireless telephone or wire line phone. You, however, will not be able to receive calls during the porting process.

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.

No plan. It means if you put a 20.00 card on it, the minutes shown on that card will triple automatically, you won't have to put in a code.

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.
