Does this particular TracFone (LG840G) have an Airtime Balance Display? If not, where do I go to find my airtime balance?

yes it does show minutes and DAYS(not date) on the main screen, when you power the phone on it will show expiration DATE for about 5 seconds, then it will go to the main screen and there it will have a constant display of your remaining minutes and the number of remaining DAYS(counting down each day) not your expiration date, you can turn off these displays of minutes and days, but why would anyone want to do that?

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.

go to the Tracfone site(link listed below) and enter your area code there, you may find a completely different answer there, I have checked several of these where people say this WalMart site says "no", but the TracFone site says "yes" and list this phone and all the other TracFones phones that will work in their area:

No, probably not. This phone uses a proprietary operating system so the Tango Android app won't work.

No it does not have the sliding keyboard. It has a virtual qwerty keyboard that can be used for texting, entering url's and contacts. Everything else is the old numeric type keyboard.

You will need to check the Tracfone web site to be sure, but I believe there is no service in Canada with this phone... Service is only in the USA using AT&T and other major carriers.

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.

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.
