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.

When phone won't work in specific area

When it is said that the phone won't work in a given area, per zip code given, does that mean you just can't call FROM that area, or does that also mean you can't call TO that area from another area where the phone is said to work???

If your phone gets a signal and you place a call to that area where your phone does not work, it will still go through to any phone/number in that area. It only means your type phone will not be able to connect and place calls in that area.

You can't place any call in that area, usually because there is no signal for the phone to connect to.

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.

If your area is served by AT&T, this phone should work just fine.

It looks like the "coverage checker" is having issues again. If your carrier will be AT&T it looks their coverage of Fort Wayne is pretty good.

You can use the following to see which carrier TracFone will use:

I would say that you won't have any problem with the LG 840G working at your location

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.

Why don't you try using the 3.5MM earphone jack and not the usb port. I think that is the design internt.

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.

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)
