This phone is a TracFone Device and it comes with a new SIM Card. You CANNOT use any other SIM card in it as they bind the SIM Card directly to the phone itself with their programing.

If you are transferring an existing phone number to it, CALL Tech Support or let the Walmart Rep take care of it for you. DON'T TRY TO DO IT ONLINE.

If you want a new number for the phone, you can activate it online pretty easily.

Once a phone number has been assigned to the SIM and it's activated, it cannot be changed, so TracFone would have to send you a NEW SIM in order to transfer your existing number to the phone.

you will only use your minutes if you click on browser without being connected to a wifi. connect to a wifi first, then click on your browser and you won't use any of your minutes. i suggest downloading the opera browser. it is a much better browser.

No.

But you must connect to WiFi before you start your browser.

If you open the browser first then you are not using WiFi.

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.

Yes. You can make international calls at the same rate as calling locally. They don't charge extra for an international call.

Yes. They had this phone as a today's special value on HSN this past Sunday and the rep said you can call a hundred different countries. The good thing is, the international calls count the same as making a local call, so you don't use a lot of extra minutes, it's like calling your next door neighbor.

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?
