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......

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.

Do Not believe what you see on the walmart website concerning cell phone coverage area.

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.

Power up/down volume adjustment?

I have an LG235C which you can set to no volume (silent) when you turn it on (power up) or turn it off (power down). Doesn't make any noise when you turn it on or off. Can you do this on the LG840G?
