No.

This is not an Android phone, not a smart phone either.

You can install some JAVA apps, downloadable at getjar.com but nothing new or phone, just old games, Google Maps, and Opera Mini Browser.

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.

yes it does. It's not a high quality one though. The still camera is only a 2 megapixel so you can imagine the quality of the video going by that.

If I understand you correctly, you want to purchase a Tracfone and try it then at a later time you want to transfer your ACTIVE telephone # to this phone.

Yes it can be done. It has to be done in steps. Whatever you do, do not call Tracfone other than as described as follows, because you could lose your telephone # and you won't get it back.

Here's the process, don't miss a step. Activate a new Tracfone. Go to Tracfone.com and create an online account and add the phone. Don't add a lot of minutes and in 90 days let the new Tracfone go inactive. Now call Tracfone and tell them you're ready to reactivate the phone and they will check that it's your phone at your online account and will send a new SIM to the address on record. Remove your SIM from your Tracfone and insert the new SIM and call Tracfone ( could begin this process online if you're comfortable, but you still will have to call them about the new SIM receipt). Tell them you want to port your cell phone from another phone to this inactive phone and they will take it from there.

GGB, to my knowledge, you can "port" your telephone number whenever you change phones. I hope this helps.

why will the lg840g not work in the 38619 aire

If you have AT&T GSM Service in your area, this phone should work just fine... Got mine last night and it works great. It will also work on T-Mobile if that is the prominent provider in your area. The SIM included with the phone will determine which network the phone will be placed on.
This link may help you to determine what network the phone is configured for when buying a phone. If you have an existing phone, its even easier.

My guess is that it will work in the 38619 area code. Walmart has probably not yet updated the "coverage checker" for this newly released phone.

FYI, I plugged in my own zip code as well as the zip codes for all major cities in my area. The coverage checker told me that the phone would not work in any of them. I then tried the zip codes of major cities in other states. Supposedly the phone will not work in any of them, either.

You have to buy minutes/time on tracfone's web site, or from stores that carry tracfone minute/time cards. Their web site also does have "plans", so you can check them out there.

New Tracfones come with 10 to 20 complimentary minutes, to try out the new phone before you buy airtime.

The LG 840G should work at your location. It was a matter of the "coverage checker" not being updated.

Try your zip code now and it will show that the phone will work.

Search eBay or Amazon for an LG T375 or LG T395. The LG 840g has been sold outside the U.S. for a couple of years under these model numbers. There is a seller from Spain that has listings for the silicone gel cases for $5-$6. Amazon has leather cases listed under those model numbers. There is another place www.fatorder.com that is supposed to be getting the gel cases for the LG 840g by late December. Currently listed as out of stock.

I haven't found any yet, but the phone is so new I don't think anyone has come up with any. Although LG makes a similar phone, LG T375, which is basically the same phone, but it's a 'real phone' that you use on regular (not Tracfone/Net10 plans) programs. So far I've found screen protectors for that model on Amazon and they work just fine. I'm hoping they come up with actual LG 840g accessories soon.
